How to Sync eWallet for macOS with an Android OS device via Wi-Fi

Last Updated:

To set up sync between eWallet for macOS (7.5 or later) and eWallet for Android (8.0 or later) first make sure you have a wallet on the Mac with the same name and password as the one on your Android phone or tablet. If you have a wallet on the Mac that is not on the device yet, the sync process will ask to copy it over the first time you sync.

To create a wallet on your Mac, start eWallet and go to File → New. Make sure it has the exact same name and password as the wallet on your Android mobile device.

Then, set up the sync partnership:

  1. Connect your Android device to a wireless network that your Mac can access. If your Mac is connected via Ethernet (hard-wired) to your wireless router or to a network with a wireless access point, you will also be able to sync in most cases.
  2. Start eWallet on your Android phone or tablet and tap the synchronize button (arrows in a circle) at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap Sync Setup and follow the instructions on the screen.
  4. Open your wallet file in eWallet on your Mac and click the Sync Manager button in the toolbar. You must have a wallet file open on your Mac to do this.
  5. Click “Add”, then click the Android button and follow the instructions. You may be asked to enter the IP address from your device - you will find it at the bottom of the black synchronization screen displayed on your device.
  6. Click “Close” to close the Sync Manager window on your Mac.
  7. Click “Sync Now” in the toolbar, or Synchronize → Sync Now from the menus.

Synchronization requires a Wi-Fi network that your Mac and Android mobile device can both connect to.
