- What is Faithlife? Why do I have an account with them?
In August 2014, the company known as Logos Bible Software was rebranded as Faithlife Corporation. We are the same company and still the makers of Logos Bible Software, but Faithlife encompasses many other services to serve the Church. The Faithlife family of resources includes an integrated church platform, academic study resources, ebooks, and more. All of these tools are connected by a single account—your Faithlife account. Learn more about Faithlife.
If you previously created an account on Logos.com, it is still active and valid. It has simply been renamed as your Faithlife account.
- What is my Faithlife username and password?
Your username is the email address you used to create your account. Your user-created password was entered during the account creation process. Both your email address and password can be changed once you have logged in to your Faithlife account.
- I forgot my password. How can I reset it?
If you know which email address you used to sign in, you can reset your password here.
If you do not have access to your email account anymore, contact customer support by phone at 800-875-6467 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- I’ve experienced a problem with my account or Logos software. What should I do?
Tip: If you’re experiencing a more technical issue, like an “error” or “crash,” please visit our Support Page for possible solutions. If your issue is not covered, you might consider emailing our Technical Support Department. You’ll find instruction for reporting these issues on Windows here. Mac users, click here.
- Can I use Logos on my mobile devices?
Yes. You can install Logos on all your favorite devices. When you log in to Logos apps using your Faithlife account, you will always have access to your library and most recent work.
- What is the End User License Agreement (EULA)?
You can view our EULA here.
The EULA is the license every user agrees to when he or she installs a copy of Logos Bible Software. In essence, the EULA says the software can be used by one user on multiple devices. Your base package is yours for your own personal use and can be used on your PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android, and other devices at home or at work.
You can view our Privacy Statement here.
- What am I allowed to do with Faithlife/Logos media? Is it copyrighted?
Logos 8 delivers a rich set of media collections, which raises some questions: What am I allowed to do with Faithlife/Logos media? Is it copyrighted? Do I have to ask permission to show it in front of an audience? What about posting to social media?
The answers to these questions depend on the media. Logos media collection slides, videos, and still photographs are released under four different licenses: Public Domain, Logos Free, Logos User, and Copyrighted. For more information, please read Permissions & Copyright for Logos Media.
- Why was an item in my cart replaced with a different item automatically?
If you are purchasing an individual book or collection, and then you add a bundle that contains the individual book or collection in your cart, we will remove the individual book because that item is contained within the bundle. This ensures you won’t pay for the same book twice.
- What is Faithlife’s return policy?
We have a 30-day money-back guarantee return period on all non-subscription products. Once your product is returned, we will process your refund within 7–10 business days. Any specific item may be returned only once for the lifetime of your account. Please contact Customer Service at 888-875-6467 for help with your return.

- What is Logos Bible Software?
Logos is the world’s leading Bible software. Its massive networked libraries, fast searches, original language tools, and helpful Bible–knowledge features help you draw insight from the Word. The software’s beautiful media allows you to easily share these insights with others. No matter what device you’re using—Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Android—you can take your library anywhere.
- What is a base package?
A base package is made up of two essential parts:
- A Logos 8 theological library that includes commentaries, reference works, and other helpful biblical resources
- A Logos 8 Feature Set made up of tools and datasets that work in coordination with your library to give you deep, powerful Bible study
The power of Logos 8 is how these two work together. Logos 8 libraries are curated to help you get the most out of the Logos 8 Feature Set. You can learn more about base packages here.
- What are datasets, and how do I use them?
Datasets are curated by a team of Bible specialists. They have tagged common names, nicknames, pronouns, phrases, and numerous other data points within the Bible to help make your Bible study more efficient and effective. The power behind Logos is within the datasets.

- Are there any special pricing options available?
Yes! Students and educational faculty can save on base packages and select resources with our academic program.
- I thought Logos software updates were free—why do I have to pay to upgrade?
We offer free updates to the software to allow you to read your books on new versions of your operating system. You don’t pay for updates at all, and depending on how long you have been using Logos Bible Software, you have probably already received dozens of free updates since your initial purchase.
- Why should I upgrade?
You should upgrade to make sure you have the latest and greatest tools for Bible study and to take advantage of the best value you may ever encounter on a library. The new base packages contain hundreds to thousands of dollars of new content for pennies on the dollar. What’s more, with dynamic pricing your resources are tallied and you receive a custom discount toward your new base package. You only pay for the new content—nothing more.
- Where can I see a list of all the contents in each package?
All the Logos Bible Software base packages have been reconfigured with new content for Logos 7. For a complete list of the exact contents in each package, visit our compare libraries page.
- What happens to books I’ve already purchased if I upgrade to Logos 8?
You keep them all! You won’t lose any books by upgrading. In fact, dynamic pricing analyzes the books you already own, so your current library counts as credit toward your Logos 8 complete upgrade.
- If I own Logos 7 Bronze, and I want to get Logos 8 Bronze, will I lose any features or books?
No. You will gain the new features and books that are part of your Logos 8 Bronze complete upgrade.
- Will I lose my notes, highlights, and favorites when I upgrade to Logos 8?
No. Your notes, highlights, and favorites, when synced to the cloud, will transfer to Logos 8 as long as you have an internet connection.

Logos run on Windown and Mac operating systems. Please visit https://www.logos.com/system-requirements for more on system requirements.
- I have a new computer/operating system. How do I get Logos back without purchasing again?
Just go to the Installation page and follow the directions. You can install as many times as you need to, to whatever operating system you need to, and on as many devices as you need to—as long as you aren’t sharing your library with another person. And remember, if you need quick access to Logos on a computer that doesn’t have the full desktop program installed, you can use the Logos Web App at App.logos.com.
- Do I need to uninstall Logos 4, 5, or 6 before I upgrade?
No. Your Logos 8 upgrade will replace your existing software installation (but not your books and features). If you remove Logos from your computer, you will need to re–download all of your Logos content in Logos 8.
- I just upgraded to Logos 8 and downloaded my books, but my software still indicates I have an older version of Logos. How can I get the Logos 8 engine?
If you are upgrading from Logos 4 or 5 to Logos 8, your new books will automatically download when you restart the software; however, you may need to manually install the new Logos 8 engine. If your computer meets the system requirements for Logos 8, locate the install link on your Order Summary email and follow the instructions.
- I bought a USB drive. When will my order arrive?
Most non–download orders typically arrive in 5–7 business days. Please allow extra time for delivery during the holiday season or if the drive is being shipped internationally.
- What’s the difference between the USB and download versions? What is a “media-only” USB?
If you don’t have high–speed internet, you can purchase any of our base packages on a USB drive. You will receive a USB and may receive an attached serial number with your order for activation.
Most users prefer to download the software instead. Your Logos Bible Software download begins as soon as your purchase is complete, and can be re-downloaded at any time as needed.
The media-only USB is a USB backup of your books, but will require the Logos Core Engine to run. You will need this in addition to your base package purchase.
- Will you release a free version of Logos 8?
We will update this page when Logos 8 Basic is available. Meanwhile, you can get Logos 7 Basic here.
- Is Logos available in languages other than English?
Yes, Logos is available in the following languages:
- I already have an English base package, but am interested in purchasing one in a different language. Can the two be combined? How does it work?
Yes. English language resources are available in English, and foreign language resources are available in that language. You can choose which language to have the software display in. We also offer bilingual packages for certain languages.

If you have specific questions about books in your library, call customer service at 800-875-6467 and they can help you.

The Logos Bible app includes some of our most popular features from the desktop software, including the Notes, Highlighting, and Text Comparison tools, as well as the Passage Guide, Bible Word Study, Exegetical Guide, and Topic Guide. However, for the best Bible study experience, a Logos base package for a desktop or laptop computer is the best option.
- Do I need to be connected to internet for the app to work?
It depends. You will need to be connected to the internet via your mobile data provider or Wi–Fi to access all the features and resources of the app. We currently offer offline reading support for owned resources, private notes, highlights, and limited searching when you are not able to access the internet. Guides, full searching, word lookup, and Community Notes require an internet connection. To learn how to download a book for offline reading, click here.

- What is a payment plan?
A payment plan gives you the option to spread your payment out over several months. If the one–time price is a bit too much, a payment plan can lighten the load.
- Who qualifies for a payment plan?
Anyone with a billing address in an approved country. Currently all countries are approved except the following:
- Which orders qualify?
All orders over $100.00 (including tax and shipping).
- How long can my payment plan be?
We offer payment plan options from 2-20 months, depending on the size of your purchase. You will see the payment plan options available for your purchase displayed in your shopping cart.
- What will my payment be?
Monthly payments are based on order total including tax and shipping, excluding the price of subscription products that may be on the order. The payment will vary depending on order size, the number of months you choose, the items on the order, and the amount of your initial payment. You can see the payment plan options available for your purchase displayed in your shopping cart, and use the selector to see how your monthly payments would change based on your choices.
- Do you require a downpayment?
Depending on the size and length of the plan being established and the items contained in the order, we will sometimes ask users to make an initial payment that will be greater than the monthly payments to follow. This will be clearly shown in the shopping cart.
- Why am I charged a service fee? Is that interest?
The $5 monthly service fee is not interest, but is collected to cover the very real administrative costs associated with the payment plan.
- Is a payment plan consistent with good stewardship?
Payment plans, like credit cards, can be used either constructively or carelessly. We offer payment plans as a purchase option to allow individuals the opportunity to invest in our Bible study tools in a way that works for them, within their budget constraints.
- What happens to the pennies that can’t be divided equally?
Any remaining pennies that cannot be divided equally are included with the initial payment. For example, an order totaling $300.04 paid over three months would be split into one payment of $100.02 followed by two payments of $100.01.
- How do I purchase a product using a payment plan?
Shop as usual! You will be presented with a payment plan option in your cart on Logos.com or you can call 800-875–6467 and ask a sales representative to assist you with a payment plan.
- Can I combine multiple payment plans?
Yes. Call (800) 875–6467 and ask a representative how!
