Important Information about Editing Google Drive Documents Offline

  • You can access all of your files from any Chrome browser as well as your Chromebook, but do not setup offline access on a public computer. You should only do this on a computer within your home. If you setup offline files on a computer at the public library, or some other access location, you risk your files being accessible by anyone using that computer after you. Although you should not use a public device at all, always remember to log yourself out before leaving the computer.
  • Use the Chrome browser or a Chrome device. You cannot work offline with other browsers.
