Instagram confirmed the issue on Twitter, stating, “We’re aware that some of you are having issues accessing your Instagram account. We’re looking into it and apologize for the inconvenience.” followed by the hashtag #InstagramDown, which is also being used by users across the world to report problems with the platform.

Instagram was been completely down for the over an hour with several users unable to login to their accounts, while those who are able to gain access are getting the message, “We suspended your account on October 31, 2022.” while asking users to appeal the decision within 30 days.
