Can't Access Instagram - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as instagr.am, instagram.com, web.instagram.com

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

This makes me so mad. Instagram knows it's popular, so it shoulld be prepared for just about anything! But, it's not; therefore, they need to get their shit together. I'm tired of having these issues. It's about damn time they do something to actually solve the problem. Have a good day.

Last I checked my Instagram when I went to bed a few hours ago. Switched on wifi to backup the phone, and now when I'm trying to open Instragram it crashes and closes on its own after 1 second! Then it stays in the open apps.. Anyone else with the same problem?

I tried to sign into my friends phone bc mine was dead and it asked her to verify a pin that was supposed to be sent to my email. No code came in and now I can't access my account at all. Does anyone know what's going on?

Can't log in on mobile, Instagram said there was "unusual activity" on my account and that they'd email me a security code. Didn't receive anything and on desktop all I get is a broken image and "Sorry, an error occurred while processing this request." Get your shit together Instagram.
