Thousands of Instagram users reported issues with accessing the platform on Monday morning.
Approximately 7,000 users reported the app was down around 10:15 a.m. ET, according to outage-tracking site Down Detector. After about 45 minutes, however, the number of reports had dipped noticeably.
Instagram said in a tweet Monday that it had fixed the issue.
“We’ve resolved this bug now — it was causing people in different parts of the world to have issues accessing their accounts and caused a temporary change for some in number of followers,” the company tweeted. “Sorry!”
Additional information on the cause of the outage was not immediately available.
