Instagram down for thousands of users, but there’s a way to access it

As seen in the Downdetector chart above, the app has witnessed a massive outage in the last 24 hours, and the issue seems to have not been fixed yet. We tried to access the app via our metered connection, home Wi-Fi connection, and via a VPN (SurfShark). While the first two methods did not help us a single bit, trying to access Instagram with a VPN connection on did work for us, thereby meaning that the issue might be specific to some locations and servers.

The outage has been causing Instagram to not load content, such as posts from the feed and even the Stories won’t load. Users have been seeing messages like “Couldn’t refresh feed” and “Couldn’t load posts”. There have also been reports by users, claiming that Instagram gives out a notification suggesting that the devices are not connected to the internet, while they actually are. Surprisingly, in our test, one of our devices even logged us out of the app, and we have to log in again (which, thankfully, worked).

Several Twitter users expressed their reactions with the #Instagramdown (the hashtag was even trending on Twitter earlier this morning). Here are some of them:

Instagram is yet to confirm this massive outage, and we hope that things get back on track as soon as possible.
