Instagram said on its Twitter account that an outage that began on Monday October 31st around 6:52 pm ET had been fixed around 3 am on November 1st. Instagram locked users out during the downtime and informed many of them that their accounts will be terminated on October 31, 2022. The majority of reports of the problem appeared to come from iPhone users, with some claiming that their app recently crashed and became useless prior to an update earlier this morning.
