Where do I find the secret code on my Mac?

I'm trying to set up 1Password on a new iPad. I have an older version without an account key so am using the WLAN Server option. To do so I must have a secret code shown on my Mac. Where/how do I find that? I have found it. Please disregard this post.

    I purchased 1 Password in 2015 and use it all the time on my iMac, iPad Pro and iPhone 7 plus, all with the latest systems. Recently I noticed that all my entries on the 2 iOS devices were duplicated so after a quick search on Google I deleted the 1 password app from my iPad and reinstalled it. Now iit is asking for sign in address, and secret code and I do not have those. I have checked on my iMac and when I go to Preferences, accounts, no account shows up. I can sign in OK using my password ad use the app OK on both iMac and iPhone. Grateful if you would let me know how to get the app operating again on my iPad.

    @Scrim Sorry for the confusion. Your purchase didn't include an account, so you don't have a sign-in address or Secret Key. To get 1Password set up again on your iPad, sync your data with iCloud or Dropbox:

    Sync your 1Password data

    You can also migrate your data to a 1Password account and use that to sync your devices in the future. Then you'll have a sign-in address and Secret Key as well. Hope this helps! :)
