According to the website DownDetector, which monitors the functioning of services on the web, the problem started around 16:20. The failure affects users in different parts of the world, mainly in Europe and the United States, but there are also case reports in Brazil, especially in the Southeast region. O TechTudo tried to reproduce the error, but managed to access Instagram normally on Android and iPhone phones (iOS) and in the web version of the app. In addition, we entered the application's advisory in Brazil, which sent the following note:
Earlier today some people had trouble accessing Instagram. The problem was solved and we are back to working normally. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Google Trends, a service that tracks web searches, recorded a spike in searches related to problems on Instagram. In the last hour, there was an increase in searches for the terms "Instagram bugou", "Instagram offline today 2019", "Instagram does not load feed", "Instagram does not open" and "Instagram stopped today".
Instagram's failure was the subject of complaints on Twitter. Several users said they were unable to access the social network. Frequent app crashes are also criticized. In the past 15 days, this is the third time the program has faced problems. On the last 28th, Instagram presented errors to load the feed similar to those of today. As of last Thursday, the application displayed an unknown network error for anyone trying to sign in.
When Instagram doesn't work, you can try some "tricks" to correct errors in the app. Some alternatives are to exit the application and log in again, clear the cache and data of the program, or uninstall the service and download again. However, there is no guarantee that these tips will get you back to normal.
