You need to clear the Adobe ID you're using if you want to authorize your iOS device with a different Adobe ID.

Deauthorizing OMC without an OverDrive account

  1. Open the Home menu by swiping away from the left edge (bezel) of your screen.
    Or, if you're using a legacy version of OMC, tap Get Books+.
  2. Tap Settings.
