Instagram fixes outage that told millions their accounts had been suspended

An Instagram outage that started on Monday morning has been resolved, Instagram confirmed on his Twitter account. During the outage, Instagram locked users out and told many that “we suspended your account on October 31, 2022.” Reports of the problem seemed to have been concentrated among iPhone users, with some saying their app had recently crashed and was unusable before an update earlier this morning.

“We’ve fixed this bug now – it was causing issues with accessing their accounts in different parts of the world and causing some of the follower counts to change temporarily,” Instagram wrote. “Sorry!” Platform first confirmed the issue on Twitter at 10:14 a.m. ET, but didn’t say things were resolved until several hours later at 6 p.m. ET. Adam Mosseri, who runs Instagram, also apologized for the outage.

Reports on Downdetector topped 7,000 just as Instagram confirmed the issue, but leveled off during the day.
