Due to a global outage last week, the messaging app WhatsApp, owned by Meta, was unavailable to us. Thousands of Instagram users have their accounts suspended without warning. However, the issue that kept users from accessing Instagram for approximately eight hours has been resolved.
Instagram users worldwide encountered a login issue as a number of them received a notification stating that their accounts had been suspended. Even after selecting the “Disagree with decision” option, affected customers were unable to recover their accounts. Instagram’s PR staff confirmed in a tweet, “We’re aware that some of you are having issues accessing your Instagram account. We’re looking into it and apologise for the inconvenience.” This occurs just days after a major outage on WhatsApp, another social media app owned by Meta. The mobile app and the web app were down due to the outage for about two hours. Later, the business explained that “configuration changes on the backbone routers” were the cause of WhatsApp’s outage.
Many users claim that upon signing in, a notification indicating a suspended account appeared on their Instagram feed. The accounts were suspended for failing to follow community rules, according to the details. Additionally, customers have a 30-day window to reconsider the decision and submit a new review.
According to the online outage tracker, DownDetector majority of users encounter issues logging into their accounts. Thousands of Instagram users in India and other nations are having trouble logging in, while others are having trouble with “server connections.” Downdetector also revealed that about 7,000 Instagram users were impacted.
After their accounts were “suspended,” many users turned to the media site Twitter.
Instagram in a tweet said, “We’ve resolved this bug now – it was causing people in different parts of the world to have issues accessing their accounts and caused a temporary change for some in number of followers.”
