Instagram’s downtime has become the norm for users. The first thing users do is go to Twitter and Google to see what’s unusual. This time, however, things are a little different.
Many users have reported that their accounts have been suspended as a result of the shutdowns. According to multiple reports, Instagram appears to be crashing, or some users’ accounts have been disabled.
Users all over the world are sharing screenshots and wondering if their accounts are safe. In addition, users received alarming notifications. Let’s look into that.
Instagram Is Down And Having Issues
Instagram is currently down for multiple users. And if you are having problems or are concerned about your account, you can contact the app’s helpline.
A large number of reports were received by Downdetector from users experiencing problems with their Instagram accounts. The detecting platform confirmed that the issues started around 13:08 GMT and are impacting users worldwide.
Many users have complained and are upset because their accounts have been eliminated. And many are complaining that they are losing followers.
And this is most likely due to the fact that many people’s accounts have been suspended. On DownDetector, over 4,000 issues have been reported and it’s increasing rapidly.
It’s Not Happening To Everyone
Not only that, but it isn’t happening to everyone. Just a bunch of users. Our Instagram account is up and running as of this writing. However, there is more negative.
Users revealed that their accounts would be suspended at the end of the day on October 31, 2022, according to early studies. Because they received this disturbing notification. The user is then given 30 days to ‘disagree with this decision.’
The whole notification reads, “We suspended your account on 31 October 2022. There are 30 days remaining to disagree with this decision.” Check out the following tweet.
