Instagram is currently down, according to Twitter users. This information was also confirmed by 9to5Mac‘s staff. The Meta-owned platform is currently facing a crash as users worldwide complain about the feed stopping working, problems checking DMs and more.

Instagram is down for some users

As reported by a number of users on Twitter, and also confirmed by Down detector, Instagram went down around 9:32 a.m. PT and still facing a power outage. The reasons for the outage at this point are unclear, but DownDetector also suggests that the platform has been working to address these issues.

While some users just experience slowdowns with the Instagram app, others can’t even log into the app. Some Instagram users are also unable to load new posts into their feed, open stories, or receive and send direct messages.

Other signs that Instagram is down:

  • Unable to load your “Activity” feed with likes and comments
  • Inability to comment on posts
  • The Browse/Search tab won’t load or only shows old posts and videos
  • Search does not return correct results
