Do I Need A Zebra Account To Download Software?


Zebra printer drivers are unrestricted and do not require login. If you are having difficulty downloading a driver, please clear your browser cache.

Zebra printer firmware is unrestricted but requires login with a valid account

Operating system files for mobile computers and tablets are generally restricted and require an active contract or active software warranty to download. 

For other software such as utilities and development tools, please check the individual software page for download requirements. 


Is the Duration of Zebra's Software Warranty Different than the Hardware Warranty?


The hardware warranty period generally extends for 12 months from the date shipped or from the purchase date, whichever is later, unless otherwise specified in the Product Warranty Exceptions list. The software warranty extends for 90 days from the date hardware or software first shipped or from the purchase date, whichever is later.
