    Hello, A few questions...

    What is the correct way to use my webwallet on another device, like my iphone?

    I can get to webwallet on my home computer, but want to access that same wallet on my phone.

    And how does the site "wallet.decred.org" know who I am every time I go to the link without a login?

    Just trying to understand.

    Thank you.

    The wallet uses cookies/local storage of the browser to save all the info. So you cant see it on 2 devices without recreating it with the seed on second device. But that is not recommended unless you use only one wallet to spend/create tx while all others as just watch-only.

    Hmmm, I guess this will be improved with the webwallet upgrades? Doesn't seem so useful as it is. I mean, I'll have to create a new wallet with a new seed and then transfer funds from my desktop to my iphone's new wallet.

    Was glad that it did come out in time for launch however. I know about prioritizing programming projects, am a programmer myself.
