Instagram outage locks users’ accounts, many receive baffling suspension message

Instagram was hit by a weird outage overnight which appeared to suspend droves of users from their accounts.

Reports from confused users surged at about 12.30am, AEST.

People flooded social media, trying to figure out what was going on. Many shared a message from Instagram telling them their accounts had been suspended.

“We suspended your account on 31 October 2022,” the widely received alert said.

It was not initially clear how widespread the problem was.

“Mark Zuckerberg what hell is this my account in suspended,” one annoyed user wrote.

“Earlier it was crashing every 10-20 seconds and now they have suspended my account for no reason,” another said.

“I cannot even log in to my account.”

A third added: “What’s going on with Instagram? Did they get hacked or something?

“Mine says my account is suspended. I guess my pic of the hummus plate I made sent them over the edge.”

A surge in reports was noticed by the Down Detector site shortly after midnight.

Instagram owner Meta acknowledged the problem, saying: “We’re aware that some of you are having issues accessing your Instagram account.

“We’re looking into it and apologise for the inconvenience.”
