Offline Access - Unexpected Outages

I've experienced this on both platforms. I had an internet outage last weekend, and I could not access ANY purchased modules. Yes, I know if I CHOOSE the offline mode (which cannot be accessed unless I am already signed in), then I will be able to fly offline for a few days before the software needs validation. But...outages are not scheduled and cannot be predicted. Isn't there a way that the software will afford the same grace period when something unexpected like that happens?

Not down at the moment. This occurred last weekend. Thought of the phone tethering but the ability isn't included with my plan. All this is beside the point. I understand the necessity of authentication, but I wish ED would encode something that would allow a grace period.

Yea you probably would be wrong to assume that convenience. If someone is posting about it, they probably thought of all the silly little simple steps you did.

That worked, THANKS!

You're a life saver, I’m stuck working from home under a Covid and ice storm induced lockdown. Now I have WiFi back 😀

@Wolf359Grace period is exactly 72h without having to authenticate again. If using mobile internet/sharing is not an option and you don't want to be surprised just stay in offline mode. It saves the authentication for as long as you want it.
