Instagram is down for users around the world this July 3, 2019. It is not readily apparent what is causing the issue, but we will keep you posted. Reports coming in also suggest that WhatsApp is down. Instagram and WhatsApp are both owned by Facebook. So far no reports that Facebook is down or that Facebook Messenger is down, although tests conducted by the Internet Patrol suggest that Facebook’s media (specifically images) server is also down.
