Instagram is down for a ton of people right now (updated)
No, it’s not just you.
UPDATE 12/20/2022 12:16 PM EST: Instagram’s services are back up and running. Instagram was offline for a period of time this morning but has since resolved the issue and is back up and running.
Instagram is currently experiencing issues for thousands of its users right now.
According to Downdetector, 6,842 people have reported an outage. That number first started rising at 11:19 AM ET. That number seems to stabilize, but reports continue to roll in on Twitter.
Reports show that feeds are not loading or users are getting kicked from their accounts.
At this point, it’s unclear what’s causing the outage and whether it’s an isolated event. One Twitter user notes, “Is my Instagram down or have I just been hacked?”
On the other hand, reports are dwindling, and whatever outage Instagram is experiencing seems to be subsiding. As of 11:30 AM, the number of reports has fallen to 449.
That’s typically a good sign and means services are slowly being restored.
