An outage in the Instagram service yesterday, Monday, prevented users from accessing their accounts. They were shown a message that read: “We suspended your account on October 31, 2022.”
Instagram, a subsidiary of Meta, confirmed the problem in a tweet, saying: “We know that some of you are having problems accessing your Instagram account. We are looking into the matter and apologize for the inconvenience.”
Today, many Instagram users have received notifications informing them that they have been denied access to the platform. The problem appears to have centered on iPhone users, some of whom said that the app stopped working and was not used properly prior to an update launched today.
It was also stated that preventing users from entering also led to a significant decrease in the number of followers, so the account of the famous football player Cristiano Ronaldo lost about 3 million followers from the 493 million followers who were present yesterday, and the official account of Instagram itself lost more than one million followers.
It is noteworthy that the services of the Meta company, such as WhatsApp, Facebook, and Messenger, have witnessed over the past few days a service interruption, even the famous instant messaging application WhatsApp, last Tuesday witnessed a service interruption in many countries around the world.
