I was able to use ZLOrigin yesterday but I woke up today to play and I get this pop up. How do I fix?

Do you happen to have a legit Origin program/account, on the same computer, by any chance?

Nope. It was working fine a few hours ago as well. I just woke up and went to play and now have this issue. I don't know if my account is being used for the legal version. I haven't used my username to sign up for EA's Origin. Should I try making a new account on ZL?

Have you tried the usual fixes, like this one here:
Code:
http://tinyurl.com/y9nnk3gl

Extract the item, run the delete-cache.bat as Administrator, and wait until the process is completed. 

Then go to the folder where the ZClient.exe is. Delete everything, but the ZClient.exe. Now start up that .exe, log in with your current credentials, the window will say it is re-downloading/updating components, and the thing will close itself at least once.

Log in again through the ZClient.exe, start up the ZLOrigin then, and try again.

If it still doesn't work, and you absolutely want to play, you can grab a "Game"-folder from any repacker, which will allow you to start up the thing without ZClient/ZLOrigin. G4TW's Game-folder is also in the latest announcement here, if you like:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t35164-the-sims-4-island-living-g4tw-repack-out-now-version-1-52-100-1020

But you can basically grab it from any contemporary Sims 4-repacker/group.

Thanks. I'm giving it a try right now. Once it's done verifying files and everything, I'll report back here if it helped or not.

Good, good. You might want to keep that .bat file somewhere nearby (a.k.a. don't delete it). You should run that tool on occasion, and in case of other "problems". Have fun with the game! Problem solved, topic closed.

Yess, aye lieeke!
