Using eWallet's SyncPro® cloud sync is a great way to share your private data between supported devices. Just start with one of the two options below (you only need to do this setup once per device) and you'll very quickly be automatically syncing your wallet information.

You'll need "eWallet for iOS" v8.1 or newer to use eWallet's SyncPro® cloud sync (DropBox).

Option 1 - I already have a wallet on my iOS device

In this case you've got your wallet on your device already, but haven't yet done a cloud sync to put the master version of the wallet in the cloud. 

  1. With your wallet open on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, select the Cloud button at the bottom of eWallet
  2. Select the Setup Cloud Storage button and then select Dropbox
  3. Enter your Dropbox credentials into Dropbox login screen (you may get a second screen if you have two-factor authentication enabled)
  4. You will see a message about your wallet synchronizing, when that is complete, press Done
You now have a master copy of your wallet on Dropbox for future synchronization with this device, and if you like, other supported devices.

Option 2 - My wallet is in the cloud but not yet on my device

In this scenario, the master version of the wallet you are interested in is already in the cloud, perhaps because you did a sync from another supported device. Now you you want to get a local copy of that wallet on the device you are working with. 

  1. Start eWallet, and if you're not already seeing your list of wallets, press the Wallets button on the password screen
    (in this scenario, you should not see your wallet listed here because it hasn't yet been synced from the cloud)
  2. Select the Cloud button at the bottom of eWallet
  3. Select the Setup Cloud Storage button and then select Dropbox
  4. Enter your Dropbox credentials into Dropbox login screen (you may get a second screen if you have two-factor authentication enabled)
  5. Click the cloud/download icon next to the wallet you want and enter the wallet's password when prompted
  6. You will see a message about your wallet synchronizing, when that is complete, press Done

You now have a local copy of your wallet your iOS device.

With both options, once you have completed setting up your wallet for cloud sync for Dropbox, future synchronization will be automatic.
