EWallet stores your important password and account information in one application so you can access your data on your desktop or mobile device. Store bank account numbers, usernames and passwords, credit card numbers, even health information on your Mac or PC; then sync the information to eWallet's Android, Blackberry or iPhone apps. Windows users can sync to any of the three mobile devices, but Mac users are only able to sync to the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Set up synchronization through your desktop app and then eWallet will manually or automatically sync depending on your handheld device.

Launch eWallet on your Mac or PC.

Go to the menu ribbon at the top of the window and select "Home" and then "Synchronization."

Choose "Setup" and a list of devices appears. If you don't see the device you want, click "Add." Make sure the device is plugged in or within Wi-Fi range so eWallet will automatically detect it.

Select the device you want to sync to and click "Wallet Synchronizes with Device."

Click "OK." Synchronization is set up. Windows Mobile devices automatically sync with Windows desktops each time they're plugged in.

Choose the "Sync Now" button from the eWallet "Home" tab to manually sync non-Windows Mobile devices.


EWallet also syncs to FTP servers or folders on your hard drive to create instant backups. Go to the "Home" tab and click "Synchronization" and then "Add." Navigate to a folder or FTP site in the dialog box and click "OK." Manually sync to the folder or FTP site using the "Sync Now" button.


Apple iOS devices can only sync over Wi-Fi. If you try to sync with a USB cable eWallet won't recognize your device.
