iPWMinder is a file-based application.  All the passwords you create and manage are stored in a Password Repository file (with a .pwm extension).  Like any other important data, you should make sure you backup your data to help prevent loss.

If you are using iPWMinder with Dropbox, then Dropbox automatically keeps backups (a history) every time the file is saved so you don't really need to to anything to back up your Repository files.

If you are using iPWMinder with a Local Repository file (i.e. file is stored on Device), then you should regularly back up this file, by copying it to your Desktop computer.  Copying files from your iOS device to your Desktop computer is similar to copying files from you Desktop computer to your device (see article on Copying Files to iPWMinder using iTunes), but instead of clicking Add..., you select the file and click Save...

Tip: You can also use this technique to copy the Repository file to another phone, or computer, so you can access your passwords from there.

In addition to backing up the iPWMinder Repository file, you should also regularly backup your entire device.  For instructions on how to backup your device see the Apples article: iOS: How to back up.
