To read downloaded DRM-protected eBooks on an iOS device (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), 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 iOS device (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch)
OverDrive's mobile app for iOS
A prompt to authorize displays the first time you download an eBook to OverDrive Media Console (OMC) for iOS. Note: You can also get to the Adobe authorization section of the app at any time by tapping Settings from the app's Home menu. Or, if you're using a legacy version of OMC, tap Get Books+, then Settings.
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, then go to Home menu > Settings > eBook settings. Or, if you're using a legacy version of OMC, go to Get Books+ > 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.
