Discontinuation Notice: This tracker will not receive future updates.

Instagram is one of the most popular and used social platforms worldwide. Millions access the app daily either to check new posts from their followers or keep in touch with others.

Instagram posts are especially focused on multimedia content. Unlike other platforms where text is the protagonist, all Instagram posts are graphic (always include images or video).


Previously, the platform was limited to posts only, but later it received private messaging capabilities. This change made it a fundamental communication tool for millions of users.

Granted, details on the platform’s outage status are especially important to many. Therefore, in this tracker, we will follow up on those moments in which Instagram goes down or stops working in 2023 for any reason.

Following are some instructions that’ll help you go through this tracker easily:

  • This is a text-only tracker that focuses on highlighting the incidents of outage and/ the service in question going down or becoming temporarily dysfunctional for some reason.
  • The outage reports highlighted in this tracker are based on user reports on social media platforms like Twitter & Reddit, along with Downdetector – a platform that monitors real-time problems and outages in popular services.
  • The time of the update is mentioned in IST and is in 24-hour format. Also note, the text updates will show up in ascending order with the latest coming at the bottom.


That’s all for the instructions.

Note: Our team is trying hard to keep this tracker updated with all the latest info. However, if & when you feel something is missing, wrong, or should be added, do not hesitate to tip us in the comments or through email.
