To read downloaded DRM-protected eBooks on an Android device, you'll need to authorize OverDrive Media Console (OMC) with an Adobe ID. To enjoy eBooks on additional computers and devices, be sure to authorize each with the same Adobe ID. You may authorize up to six computers and/or devices.
Your Android device
OverDrive's mobile app for Android
A prompt to authorize displays the first time you download an eBook to OverDrive Media Console (OMC) for Android.
If you already have an Adobe ID:
Enter your Adobe ID and password.
If you do not have an Adobe ID:
Tap Get a free Adobe ID. This will open Adobe's website.
Follow the steps to create an Adobe account.
Return to OMC and go to the app Settings menu. You can find this in your Home menu (swipe from left to right across your screen to get there) or by tapping the Menu button on your device and going to App Settings.
Enter your newly created Adobe ID, then tap Authorize.
Note: If you would like to download the same eBook to another computer or device, be sure to authorize using the same Adobe ID.
