iPWMinder is a file-based application.  All the passwords you create and manage are stored in a Password Repository file (with a .pwm extension).  This file-based system makes it easier to transfer your Password Repositories between devices and systems.

Before you can start using iPWMinder, you need to create a new Repository.  To Create a new Repository perform the following steps:

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, start up the PWMinder App.  Once started you will be presented with the Welcome Screen:

 iPWMinder Welcome Screen


From the Welcome Screen, tap on Create a New Repository, and the following screen will be displayed:

Create New Repository Screen


Enter a Name for your Repository.  This is the name that will be displayed when view the Repository.  This name will also be used to create the file name for the Repository.  For example, if the Repository name is Demo, the file name will be Demo.pwm

Enter Repository Name


Can can also add a description for your Repository, the description is optional anc can but up to 100 characters long.  To enter a description, tap on the Disclosure button next to description.

Enter Repository Description


Next, you must supply a Password for your new Repository.  The password you use when creating your Repository should be as secure as possible, since it is the password that will be protecting all of your other passwords.

Make sure you remember this master password, since it will be the only way to access your Repository.  For security reasons, the password is not stored anywhere, and so if it is forgotten, it cannot be recovered.

Enter Passwords


After entering the password and its confirmation, select whether the Repository should be saved Locally or to Dropbox.  Local Repositories will be saved in the Documents folder within the iPWMinder app, and can be accessed using either iTunes or a program like iExplorer.  For more information about Dropbox, see article on How to Create a Repository for Dropbox.

Once you have entered all the Information click on Save button, which will create the Repository file.
