How to synchronize connections to different devices?

Dropshare 5.50 (macOS) and 3.39 (iOS) or later

To synchronize connections to different macOS or iOS devices from Dropshare for macOS, make sure all devices are signed in to the same iCloud account and iCloud Drive is enabled.

Go to Preferences, Connections in Dropshare for macOS, select a connection and click Synchronize… in the connection menu.

Your connection credentials will be encrypted before synchronizing them to your iCloud. Please enter a passphrase in the window that appears, that is used to encrypt your data, and also required when importing the connection on another device.
