I have a LWC component which captures online and offline events and make's apex call accordingly. I have used window object's online eventListener to capture the online event.

After event is fired a apex insert call is made. But the insert function is called multiple time's and many records are created.

I did referred below link but it didn't helped Lightning Component - AddEventListener firing multiple times

Pseudo code for reference:

    whenOnlineDoThis = () => {
        //Apex insert call

    whenOfflineDoThis = () => {
        // Some UI changes

    connectedCallback() {


Note: This is mostly observed when user has used pull to refresh when he was offline. So is it the case that, event listener is getting re-register with every pull to refresh?

this happens when you invoke the function as you are doing:

window.addEventListener('online', this.functionName)

instead of passing it for it to be triggered when the event actually occurs:

window.addEventListener('online', (e) => {this.functionName(e)});
