"Device Deauthorized" error in OverDrive for iOS

Here's the full error text: Device Deauthorized: This device is not authorized to read eBooks.

You'll see this error when you try to download an ebook on your iOS device (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), but your device isn't authorized to read ebooks.

Here are the steps to resolve it:

  1. Tap the icon in the top-left corner to open the Home menu.
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Tap Adobe ID.
  4. Tap Authorize, then tap:
    • Yes to automatically use the same account you signed in with (most likely your OverDrive account).
    • No to manually authorize with an Adobe ID instead.
  5. If you see a "Device Limit" error, you'll have to unlink another device from your OverDrive account. Then, try steps 1-4 again.
