Users while trying to log in, receive error messages saying that their login has expired.

Within half an hour of the issues first appearing on Down Detector, the number of reports had passed 90,000 for Facebook, and 15,000 for Instagram.


Meta has not replied to any posts or posted itself via either the corporate X account, or the Facebook or Instagram accounts.

Facebook has 2 billion daily active users, Instagram has around 500 million.

Both of the Meta-owned sites have suffered serious outages in recent weeks, but never at the same time.

This report is developing, more details will be shared on the Intel Region WhatsApp group as soon as possible.
