Thousands of Instagram users are reportedly unable to access the app this morning as the platform suffers a massive outage.

The Instagram app has been unable to load for many users right across the world since early Monday morning.

More than 100,000 international users have experienced issues with the app, while at least 10,000 Australians have been affected so far.

Many users have reported the issue, but so far, the social media juggernaut is yet to respond to the incident, or confirm what has caused the outage.

The website Downdetector, which reports real-time problems and provides outage monitoring, has revealed a huge spike in outage reports starting at around 8am AEST.

The vast majority of issues are connected to the app, with a small minority of users experiencing trouble with the website.

Instagram users are also taking to Twitter to report the outage, but so far, there is no update regarding when access might be restored.

Those impacted by the glitch are met with the message “Sorry, something went wrong” or just “sorry, couldn’t refresh feed” when attempting to open their Instagram feed.

Instagram is owned by Meta, the parent company of Facebook.
