 What can multiple profiles be used for?

  • You have one login for several providers
  • Use of the device by multiple users
  • To the overview: Who has licensed a lot of ebooks, can create individual profiles for self defined groups of ebooks
  • For authors: Easy switching between production and quality assurance

You will find a general introduction to the new account & profile management here.

Creating profiles

When you start & log in to the app for the first time, your first profile is created automatically. However, you can create additional profiles with the same or different access data from different providers at any time.

  1. Click on your user name in the upper right corner of the app's portal
