what's in `line.split(" ")[0].toLowerCase()`

You should read the file once only. As you read each line you can split it into three variables: Name, Username, and Password. Then after comparing the values, if you get a match you can display the name that you already have saved. And don't forget in a real world application, storing passwords in clear text is very dangerous.
