What does this mean online and offline?

25 Aug 2022 By PAYCEC

Online refers to the state of being linked to a network, most frequently the Internet, whether it be a computer, gadget, or somebody. A computer, device, or person who is offline cannot be accessed, is not connected to a network, and is unable to communicate with any other computers or devices.

Regarding computers and technologies, online and offline:

Online and offline apply to both people and technical objects, such as computers and cellphones, as you can see from the definition above. Therefore, a device or a person can be described as being online or offline; yet, when referring to a device or a person, it has a slightly different meaning.

Both offline and online for people:

A person needs a network connection and network communication capabilities on the device they are using in order to be "online." You may be familiar with connecting to a network using an Ethernet cable or a WiFi connection. Both wired and wireless communications are used by computers and smartphones to connect to networks. The term "online" and "offline" refer to the state of a device when it is connected to a network and when it is not.
