Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are now live again after 6 hours outage?

New Update

I was solving Python problems on HackerRank and suddenly my phone started vibrating (due to incoming notifications), so I checked my phone and saw the notifications of WhatsApp and Instagram.

I opened Instagram and used it for around 15 min., everything is working fine now. So I decided to update this news on this article.

Here is what Facebook tweeted on their Twitter handle:

“To the huge community of people and businesses around the world who depend on us: we’re sorry. We’ve been working hard to restore access to our apps and services and are happy to report they are coming back online now. Thank you for bearing with us.”

Comment below, if your Instagram is still not working.

Old story

Yesterdays 10 PM story when I tried sending messages to my friends on WhatsApp but it was not sending, so I tried sending them messages on Instagram and Facebook, but then I found that they both are also down.

Then I messaged my friends on Discord (I use it for gaming) and asked them if it’s an issue with my own device or if they are facing the same issues. And their reply was as expected. Yes, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are down globally.

Officials with WhatsApp confirmed Monday that users were experiencing issues with the service after reports on Downdetector indicated that the app went down alongside Instagram and Facebook.

“We’re working to get things back to normal and will send an update here as soon as possible,” officials with WhatsApp said in a Twitter post. “Thanks for your patience!”

You can see the embedded tweet below.

There could be many possible reasons behind this, out of all those reasons one could be a cyber attack. I’m not saying that it is the reason behind this global outage, I’m just keeping my point of view in front of you guys.

Well, it’s not the first time when Facebook or Instagram is down. It happened a lot in history too.

But, this time the resolving process is taking too much time. I Hope, everything will be fine.

What do you guys think about it? Let me know in the comment section.
