Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are down currently experiencing a global outage for reasons that are best known to only to the Facebook and Instagram team. Several users have now taken it to Twitter and are of the opinion that maybe the social media giant was the victim of a massive hack attack.
Several first-hand reports for Instagram are cropping up on Twitter by users, so if you’re experiencing these issues, you’re not the only one!

Is Instagram down? Instagram Inbox and Login not working
Multiple reports of Instagram inboxes not sending or receiving messages are being posted on Twitter. People are also unable to login to their Instagram accounts and are seeing errors like “we couldn’t connect to Instagram. make sure you’re connected to the internet and try again.”
My phone was giving me a problem with receiving dms and they wouldn’t show up until hours later. (this had been happening for a couple of days) Eventually my inbox like didn’t even exist. And so i decided to uninstall and install it. Then it would no longer let me log in.

I’m missing out on business and much more !!”

Instagram Explore Page Feed is also not working
Twitter user @dolanistyping posted: “Like it’s actually down, my explore page feed is f**ked, it won’t let me access my DMS on any of my accounts, other apps are working but Instagram is just down skdjd.”
Some users are concerned that Instagram is hacked
@Seven16 wrote: “I’m amazed Instagram has been down for so long. I have a feeling it’s a DDoS attack of some kind, or it could be a serious hack, which means all our DMs and sh*t could be made public for the world to see. We should be terrified.”
@Jeongkookie6 is concerned that their account may be deleted during this downtime! They said, “Okay so I tried looking up my account online and it said there was an error??? So @instagram did you delete me account?? And I tried my other one still doesn’t work and can’t find that one ether??”
