After a worldwide outage this morning which left billions of users unable to access their accounts, Meta, the parent company of Instagram and Facebook has restored service to many users over the last several hours.

The glitch, which was widespread around the globe, booted users out of their accounts, and would give them an ‘incorrect password’ prompt upon attempting to sign back into their accounts.

Users who attempted to regain access to their accounts via the ‘lost my password’ function of Facebook were also unable to access their accounts with that option. Similar problems were also reported on Instagram.

The outage reportedly lasted for just 30 minutes before most users found themselves able to log back into their accounts.

Meta announced that they were aware of the outage shortly after it occurred, with Andy Stone, a spokesman for Meta, writing on X,

We’re aware people are having trouble accessing our services. We are working on this now.

Stone later added in a follow-up message,

Earlier today, a technical issue caused people to have difficulty accessing some of our services. We resolved the issue as quickly as possible for everyone who was impacted, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Twitter/X Owner Elon Musk trolled the social media giant over their widespread outages this morning, tweeting on his account, “If you’re reading this post, it’s because our servers are working.”

That post has already garnered 35.8 million views, 131,000 retweets, and 987,000 likes. Others users poked fun at Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, over the technical issues seen across Meta’s platforms this morning.

For now, millions of Americans once again have access to their Meta accounts. With the infamous AT&T outage occurring just days ago, and now the Meta outage, it appears that cyber problems are here to stay for the time being.
