Mumbai: Several Instagram users in India and some other parts of the world on Thursday reported problems with the app on their iOS and Android devices.
Complaints of an Instagram outage are still flooding Twitter (As of 12:40 pm). Additionally, ‘#InstagramDown’ was trending for a brief period on Twitter. However, we still managed to open the Facebook-owned social media platform on both the PC and Android phone, so the problem doesn’t seem to be affecting everyone or has been rectified at the very least.

Instagram users have been reporting outages in other parts of the world as well. Some users are reinstalling the app on their devices, we would advise against this as the problem seems to have originated from the server and should be resolved soon. Instagram has yet to confirm the outage.
