Instagram Outage That Suspended Many Accounts, Is Now Fixed
On Monday, many Instagram users were shocked to find themselves locked out of their accounts and read that their accounts have been suspended.
The outage happened around 9 PM when suddenly the app when opened informed users that their accounts were suspended and that they needed to verify their mail ID and phone number to continue.
Instagram users saw a sudden dip in their followers as well as the people they follow. Some also saw the app going blank with no images and videos that were posted in the past.
In our case, we read that our accounts were suspended and were asked to verify our mail ID and phone number to continue.
“We suspended your account on October 31, 2022. There are 30 days remaining to disagree with this decision,” Instagram showed us this message.
However, we were able to gain back access by answering the verification requests it asked for after tapping on “Disagree with the decision.”
Instagram Outage Even Dropped Accounts Followers
On 31st October, many users started reporting that their Instagram accounts were not working via tweets, and then after that, DownDetector also announced that Instagram was facing an outage.
And on the other side, some of the users have also started facing another issue which was a notice of account suspension, and others started losing follower counts. For example, around 100-300 followers drop for an account with 20k followers.
After that, the Instagram official also tweeted regarding this issue that they are aware of it and they are working on a fix, but they didn’t mention the follower drop on some accounts.
It is a big deal as the platform with over 2 billion users has been facing outage issues for around a day, and more than that, there were also issues in their accounts.
Besides, it is said to be the biggest Instagram outage of the year, so the company kept working hard to resolve it, so after around 8 hours of the earlier tweet, they fixed it.
As they announced via tweet, the issue is resolved, and finally, they have also talked about its causes which I already mentioned above user faced inaccessibility to their account, which reflected as an account termination notice.
Also, Instagram is also aware of some Instagram accounts whose follower count dropped due to this issue, so now it is proven that it was not a coincidence, and in return, they have also said sorry about it.
Instagram accounts are usually suspended when they account doesn’t follow the app’s community guidelines.
The message above also read that if the account couldn’t confirm its owner, then it would permanently delete the account.
Instagram acknowledged the outage and posted on Twitter saying that they were aware of the outage and were trying to fix it.
It has now informed users that it has resolved the bug that was “causing people in different parts of the world to have issues accessing their accounts and caused a temporary change for some in the number of followers.”
