eWallet features WiFi synchronization for Apple iOS devices, but it isn't the only way to transfer data back and forth. If you cannot get the synchronization working for some reason, or if you just want to back up your data, you can use eWallet's email backup and restore option.


  • iPhone or iPod touch: open your wallet and tap the More ellipsis [...]  then, tap the envelope icon. 
  • iPad: view the wallet list and tap on your wallet's name, then tap the Backup button and choose Email. 

This will send your wallet as an email attachment to whatever email address you specify. The file is the same wallet file as stored on your device, so it's always encrypted. 


To restore your data from an email backup, view the email message in the Mail app on your iOS device, then tap on the file attachment. The file will be copied into eWallet on your device. It won't overwrite existing files; if the filename already exists, eWallet will copy the file with a number at the end of its name so you don't accidentally erase your data.
