The Meta company that owns the Instagram application announced, on Sunday, that the application services have returned to most users after solving a technical problem that caused thousands of users to lose service.
“Earlier today, a technical issue caused some people to be unable to access (the) Instagram. We were able to resolve the issue as quickly as possible for everyone affected (out of service),” a company spokesperson told Reuters.
However, the company did not disclose the number of people affected by the disruption of services.
But the Down Detector website showed more than 100,000 cases in the United States, 24,000 in Canada, and more than 56,000 in Britain.
More than 180,000 users reported problems logging into the app at the height of the outage.
It is noteworthy that Down Detector monitors service outages by collecting reports from several sources, and these sources include users.
