Hi, i just downloaded the light wallet on my mac, now i have to open it, but it asks me for giving in the seed. What i find weird is that i do not find where i can find or where i do create a seed for that wallet. With most other wallets there is a passphrase or something i can use and copy to use as my seed. So really do not get it here? 

So any help here would be appreciated, please?

Hi @weske83,
thanks for your post and welcome to Hello IOTA!

There's no option in the Lightwallet for generating a seed. But don't worry, you'll figure it out.

A seed is the proof of ownership of your tokens and your own responsibility. It's very important that you create and store your seed in a secure way to avoid losing your IOTA. Read all about how to safely generate and store your seed in the following blog post: 
https://blog.iota.org/the-secret-to-security-is-secrecy-d32b5b7f25ef

Do not use any online seed generator, any website or any third party tool to generate your seed, ever! 
Do not give your seed to anyone, no matter what.
Please let us know if you have any more questions!
