Can Quicken be used offline?

I don't always have connectivity when traveling and since recently moving to the subscription-based version, it seems like I can't launch Quicken unless I am connected to the internet, which is pretty inconvenient. I don't use the web service but it appears to authenticate each time I open Quicken.

    Hi @PaulFM,

    Quicken does require "connectivity" initially when you purchase the subscription, and it also requires connectivity for updates to the application and for downloading data from your financial institutions, etc.  However, you can also run the Quicken application when you don't have a connection (i.e. offline) you just won't be able to download data again (or update the application) until you are once again connected.

    Hope this helps.

    You need to disable you network adapter(s) before starting Quicken.
