I've been trying to set up a BitCoin wallet in TAILS OS. Every time I enter into the Electrum application, I am warned that Electrum is not configured to use persistence on my USB, that I'll lose my wallet upon powering off. How can I fix this?

As per Tails documentation:

Go to Applications -> Tails -> Configure Persistent Volume then choose the option for Bitcoin Client then click on Save and reboot your Tails for the changes to take effect. Now Electrum should be using the Persistent volume.
