You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for instructions on how to save Wordle offline. We’ve included instructions for downloading Wordle to your iPhone, Android device, or computer.
There are several compelling reasons to desire an offline version of Wordle. If you’ve ever had a Wordle need but ran out of data, you understand the torture of Wordle desire. Additionally, there is the looming prospect of a Wordle paywall. Our favorite five-letter, six-guess word game has been acquired by the New York Times, and while it is presently free to play, it is possible that it could eventually require a NYT subscription.
There seems to be an option to save the game offline, allowing you to Wordle at your leisure. However, the ease of setup varies according to the device on which you’re playing. If you’re using a PC, this will be significantly easier than if you’re using a smartphone.
How to save Wordle offline on a personal computer
If you download Wordle to your PC, you will not only be able to play without an online connection; you will also be protected in the future from a New York Times paywall. The Wordle web page’s source code includes a word list with hundreds of incoming words. If you’re wondering how to cheat at Wordle, this word archive is the key. Thus, this downloaded version will update daily with the correct word, just like the online version. It’ll even keep track of your winning streaks.
It’s also quite simple to set up. To begin, open a web browser on your computer, right-click on a blank place within Wordle, and select “save as.” Wherever a popup for “save as type” appears, click it and then select “save as webpage, complete.” This provides you with two components on your PC. There will be a folder containing files. The second file is an HTML document. You simply double-click it and you’re done on Wordle, totally offline.
How to Save Wordle on Android
While downloading Wordle to your mobile device is not as simple as it is on a PC, it does allow you to play Wordle on the move if you don’t have data.
To save Wordle offline for Android, navigate to the webpage in your browser (Chrome, Edge, Brave, etc), hit the three-dotted menu, and select the download icon as shown in the screenshot below. From there, you can access Wordle in the event that it becomes inaccessible due to poor internet connection or if you’re low on mobile data.
How to save Wordle on iPhone (iOS)
If you need Wordle for offline use on iOS, while viewing a Wordle webpage, hit the share button, select options next to the webpage URL, and then click done. Save to files, select a folder, then press save. You now have access to Wordle offline. Bear in mind that using this method will require you to locate the file on your phone.
This is not quite the same as it is on the PC. You’ll need to be online to access Wordle for the first time each day; after that, you can turn off your internet and open the downloaded file to play that day’s Wordle normally.
Unfortunately, it’s worth noting that this method on mobile will not track your most recent streak. Therefore, what is more valuable to you? Offline play or maintaining your streak?
While the mobile technique is not ideal, it is the only option available until an official Wordle app is released. If you want to learn how to save Wordle as an app on Android or how to save Wordle stats on the iPhone, there is a different approach to achieve that.
