Contents in UserGuiding (guides, hotspots, checklist, theme, etc.) are bundled inside the JavaScript, so UserGuiding remains functional if there is no internet connection. 

In such a case, UserGuiding makes the best of the localStorage for storing user history to enable vital features such as "showing a guide only once", custom attribute tracking, segmentation, targeting and, etc.

If in your case localStorage is not enabled, you can tap into our JS API to trigger your onboarding content.
