- The crash occurred around 11:45 EST and affected several countries
- The United States, China, parts of Europe and South America have been problems of experience
- Many users have argued that they cannot log into accounts on the app or website
Instagram went back online after a two-hour hiatus that left hundreds of thousands of users around the world unable to log into their accounts on the app and website.
The crash started around 11:45 ET and was likely to be fixed around 13:50 ET.
It’s unclear what triggered the glitches, but users said they couldn’t access their accounts, and if they could, the feed isn’t loading – and this is affecting both the iOS and Android app.
A Meta spokesman told DailyMail.com: “Earlier today, a technical issue caused some people to have trouble accessing Instagram. We have resolved the problem as soon as possible and apologize for any inconvenience.

This could refer to the numerous outages of the social media platform.

The death last week of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, arrested by the Tehran moral police for “inappropriate dress”, has unleashed anger over issues such as freedom in the Islamic Republic and the wavering economy after sanctions.
NetBlocks also reported a “loss of nationwide connectivity” of an Iranian mobile mail operator and a third-party network.
WhatsApp servers were disrupted at many ISPs a few hours after Instagram’s services were blocked, NetBlocks from London said.
The group’s data shows that Internet access has been almost completely disrupted in parts of Western Iran’s Kurdistan province since Monday, while the capital city of Tehran and other parts of the country have experienced disruptions since Friday when the first protests erupted.
Two residents of Tehran and southern Iran said they can only send text messages, not photos on WhatsApp, and Instagram appears to be completely blocked.
