Why can't I read an ebook on a public computer?
This information comes from Scholars Portal.
There are several reasons we suggest you not use these ebooks on public computers.
- Once you have logged into a tool like Adobe Digital Editions (ADE), it is not easy to log out. Just logging out of the computer will not log you out of ADE, which means the next person to log in may have access to your account
- AdobeIDs can only ever be associated with six devices, and they cannot ever be 'de-associated.' If you open books on multiple public computers, your AdobeID will soon be locked.
Note that you can download the ebook at a public computer and email yourself the (unopened) .acsm file. Once you have access to a personal computer or tablet, you can open the file in your reader of choice.
