I had to restore my iPhone. Upon restore I didn't have any of my passwords. I'm try to figure out the best way to avoid that in the future. Is the best thing to do, is to backup with a log file?

    what I do to save my stuff from my iPhone is as follows:
    go to Export / Export Sites / Safe Export / Share Airdrop

    then you can choose to save to many places. I save to Notes because it is automatically backed up to iCloud. No password are saved, only web site usernames and their password settings.

    When reinstalling the app on your phone, create a profile by entering the "same" user name and the "same" masterpassword and you will be given the opportunity to recover from that file.
