Instagram users wee reporting issues with the app. The outage that started Monday morning has been resolved, Instagram confirmed on its Twitter account.
During the outage, Instagram locked users out and told many of them that “we suspended your account on October 31, 2022.” Reports of the issue seemed to have been concentrated among iPhone users, with some saying their app was recently crashing and unusable ahead of an update earlier this morning.
“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,” Instagram wrote. “Sorry!” The platform first confirmed the issue on Twitter at 10:14AM ET but didn’t say things were resolved until many hours later at 6PM ET. Adam Mosseri, who heads up Instagram, also apologized for the outage.
It comes as users of the popular social media app have shared that their accounts have been disabled or suspended.
One user took to Twitter to say: “Instagram seems to be crashing or my accounts have been disabled”
