I was wondering if there is a way for my wife to have her on user profile on my Logos account? I want to install Logos on her pc so she can use it.

Welcome to the Forums! Logos considers a married couple to be "as one", so unless you are both in vocational ministry, you are permitted to install L8 on her computer and she can login under your credentials. Be mindful that both of your notes and highlights, etc. will appear in both of your computers. Some find that a Spouse installs the Free resources (plus a preferred Bible translation) but this would not allow you to share other resources that are part of your L8 Library.

I assume you meant "her own user profile." Unfortunately, the answer is "no." As the others mentioned, the resources are licensed to "one user." FL does define "one user" to include a non-vocational ministry spouse, but it is still designed for only one user... so there are not separate user profiles. You are free to install the software on as many computers and devices as you own for your own personal use... and she may as well, as long as you understand those limitations.

Thank you for the clarification. I do in fact mean user profile under my Logos account for her. I was trying to avoid our notes and information from crossing in Logos. I have Logos setup the way that's most beneficial to the way I study and I was hoping she could do the same for her study time. 

Thanks again.

Layouts can be installation specific. Notes and other preferences, however, populate across the entire account. If you don't want to mess that up, your best bet is to get her "Logos Basic" and to make a few purchases when needed.
