Fixed! Kindle License Limit Reached

Posted by on .

I got a "license limit reached" message when trying to download a Kindle book that I had purchased before. What is "License limit reached"?

kindle license limit reached

What is kindle license limit? Amazon limits the number of devices you can download a book on. When the kindle books downloaded to kindle devices and apps exceed the limited numbers, "License limit reached" will pop up. The number of kindle license totally depends on the publisher. It can be 2, or 4, and up to 6. The most common situation is that you can have six copies downloaded to different devices and apps.

If the "License limit reached" error message pops up, you cannot download this book to more devices. How to fix it?

Solution 1: Deregister Any Old Devices that You no Longer Use--Temporary Solution

1. Go to Amazon.com  in a web browser and sign in

2. Click on the "Your Account" menu and then select "Manage Your Content and Devices".

3. Under "Device" tab, just deregister any old devices that you no longer use.

Tip: Old Kindles, old smart phones, and old tablets may still be associated with your account.

Then try to download your kindle books again to the new device. This time you will get your kindle books downloaded successfully.

Solution 2: Purchase This Book Again (Amazon recommended)

Just as the pop up message indicated that you can also purchase another copy of this book from Kindle store. It looks super "Stupid", right? We are asked for paying for the same book we have been charged before. I don't really recommend this method at all because it is nonsense.

Some important tips

1. While Amazon limits the number of devices you can download a book on to six, the book's publisher could decide to restrict that further. Some books can be downloaded to Kindle for PC/Mac latest version.

2. Amazon’s website contends that you can download Kindle books an unlimited number of times to each registered device attached to your Amazon account.

3. Deregistering the kindle device that no longer use only helps you release the license limits. You may reach this limit again soon if you try to download your kindle books on multiple devices.
