PasswordWallet for iOS


Table of Contents

Getting Started

PasswordWallet for iPhone and iPod Touch is a native application that can only be purchased through the iTunes Application Store and installed through iTunes.

The first time you run PasswordWallet you will be presented with a screen asking for two passwords. This is the master password that you will use to access your data in the future.

Once set up:

  • Add records with the "+" button.

  • Push "Save" when you're done.

  • Push "Lock" when you want to exit.


PasswordWallet is able to sync with Macs, Windows and other iOS devices. While it can do this through WiFi and WevDAV, it is highly recommended that users sync through Dropbox. Dropbox is a free internet "cloud" service that will act as a man-in-the-middle for all devices to sync through.

To setup synchronization just tap the "Synchronize" button. The software will guide you through all of the necessary steps.

Managing Files

Users can create and maintain multiple PasswordWallet files on their iPhone or iPod Touch. PasswordWallet files on the iPhone are identical to the PasswordWallet files on the Mac (and Windows Mobile, hehem) version.

From the main screen push "File or Manage Files"

  • Open File - PasswordWallet can only open one file at a time. So in this section, select the file to open. After selecting the file to open you will be asked for its master password.

  • Open File - PasswordWallet will always choose your default file to open when run. To choose a default file, turn on "Use as default" when choosing a file to open.

  • Rename file - Select a file to rename. Files do not need a ".passwordWallet4" suffix. All files displayed are PasswordWallet4 files.

  • Delete file - Delete the selected file or delete all files.

Change Password

Use this option to change the password on the selected file. The name of the file appears at the top of the screen. The old password is required to change password.


With the list of records displayed, tap "Sort" in the navigation bar. You'll be given a choice of many fields to sort by. Turn sort reverse on or off before selecting a field.


With the list of records displayed, tap "Find" in the navigation bar. Either type a query to find and push "Find" or select a category. To select items that have no category, choose "Find no category".


URLs can be opened in web pages in one of two ways:

  1. Pushing the "Go" button on the right side of each entry in the entry list.

  2. Pushing the "Visit" button at the top when examining the details of an entry.

The browser built in to PasswordWallet uses the same browser core as Safari. So web pages and security will work the same in each. PasswordWallet's browser has two extra buttons: A username button and a password button. When editing a field, with the keyboard visible, push either button to have that data entered in to the active field. If your username or password is split up by bullet or tab characters, push the buttons again to cycle through the parts of either data field.

URLs that begin with "https" are secure URLs. The PasswordWallet navigation bar will be black if it is loading a secure web page. Otherwise the navigation bar will be the default system color (blue-grey.)

Editing Records

When viewing the details creen of a record, push the "Edit" button to reveal editing arrows. Push any one of these arrows to edit that field. When you are satisfied with your chanegs, push save, or cancel to abort the editing. Pushing save will save your data to the storge in your device.

Moving your data between computers and your iOS device

There are three ways to move your data between your computer and your iOS device (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, etc):

  • Via iTunes with USB cable
  • Via E-mail
  • Via Web Browser

These methods do not synchronize your data, they only move it. To initiate either of these three methods, push "Backup" or "Restore" on the main PW screen on your device. Push the "?" for more information once there.

We purposely made it a little cumbersome because we didn't want thieves to pull your data off your device willy-nilly for security reasons.

If your goal is to synchronize and merge changes on either your computer or device with the other computer or device, see our Synchronization Manual.

Backing up your data!

PasswordWallet saves your data on your iPhone in PasswordWallet Files. (There can be more than one.) These files have the exact same format as files for PasswordWallet on a Mac. These files are backed up automatically by iTunes when you sync your iPhone to your computer with a USB cable.

But what if you don't have a Mac or have access to a Mac for wireless sync?

PasswordWallet for iPhone can export your PasswordWallet entries to a special html file that you can open in your browser (Internet Explorer, FireFox, or Safari) on your computer. It's a special web page saved locally on your hard drive, makes no network connection, and stores all of your data encrypted with the exact same Blowfish technology on your iPhone.

To create a backup file that you can view on your computer:

  1. Select "Manage Wallets" on your iPhone.

  2. Select "Export" on your iPhone.

  3. Select the file under "Export Wallet".

  4. Enter the password for the file and push "Backup".

  5. Wait for it to finish.

There are a few ways to move your data from your iPhone to your computer. They are all initiated on the iPhone:

  1. Tap PW on your iPhone.

  2. Tap "Backup" or "Restore".

  3. Follow the instructions on-screen to move your data to your computer. Options are WiFi, USB via iTunes, and E-mail.

How to find your device's UDID

A UDID, or Universal Device Identifier, is a large number Apple uses to allow developers to prepare development versions of apps for your specific device.

  1. Unlock phone
  2. Plug it into the computer
  3. Go to  → About This Mac
  4. Click on "System Report"
  5. Select "USB"
  6. Find your phone, and then the "Serial Number" field has the UDID
