There is a conflict between iOS 8 and the old PasswordWallet. Please update to PasswordWallet 4.8.0 for compatibility with iOS 8. The update is free and your data should still be on your device after the update. However, we suggest backing up your data before you upgrade, just in case. Please follow the instructions below.
Update 1: You should back up your PasswordWallet data before updating. Then, if you want, you can then use this backup to access data on your Mac or Windows computer. Here’s how:
On your device:
- Tap PW
- Tap Backup (You should do this step whether you continue or not!)
- Use one of the presented methods to move your .passwordWallet4 file to your Mac or Windows computer
- Download and install PasswordWallet for your Mac or Windows computer from our web site. You don’t have to buy it. The demo period is very long and should get you through until the iOS version is updated.
Please let us know if you have any problems.
PasswordWallet for iOS 8 is coming soon! The new version will sport unlock with Touch ID, new password generation templates just like PasswordWallet for Mac or Windows. And a whole new look and feel for a great iOS 8 (or iOS 7) experience.
Stay tuned! We’re very excited about this next update and we hope to have it up on the AppStore in just a few days!
Update 2: Yes, this will be a free update for all users of PasswordWallet for iOS.
