If you're trying to use Instagram but are encountering issues, you're not alone. A quick look at the website Downdetector indicates that there are significant problems with the popular platform at the moment.

In just a few minutes, more than 5,000 reports have been received from users stating that they are experiencing issues with Instagram. 62% report problems with the Instagram app, 24% report issues with the Instagram feed, while the remaining 14% are having trouble logging into Instagram.

Looking at the map of where the problems are being reported, it's clear that they are widespread across the country, but it's particularly in New York and Nebraska where the most users are experiencing issues.

Problems Worldwide

According to Downdetector, it's not only in the USA that people are having trouble with Instagram. Users from countries around the world are reporting issues, suggesting that this might be a larger problem.

As of this moment, Meta has not released any information regarding the nature of the issues or how long users can expect to experience problems with their Instagram.

Here at, we're experiencing issues loading the Instagram feed, and we will keep you updated as new information becomes available.


Instagram has not yet made any official statement about the problems, but for most people, the app was working optimally again after an hour. However, there are still several users who, at the time of writing, are experiencing problems and receiving messages on Instagram with 'SORRY, THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH YOUR REQUEST.'

At the same time, we continue to see reports of problems on Instagram. It is probably a temporary error that should be resolved soon.
