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,,

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.

Karen Gavidia · 30 December 2015 - 23:21

I've been using Instagram in my iPhone 5s for a couple of years or more and I've never had any trouble but last month or so, Instagram asked me to log into my Facebook account to share my pictures there (as I've always have shared them) so it sent me to the Facebook link in Safari. But when I try to log into my account I get stuck in the logging in screen and can't log in. It seems like it's logging in but after it charges, I'm back at the same logging in page. I tried deleting Instagram and Facebook from my iPhone but I still have the problem. And I checked if it was just when I tried to log in to connect my Instagram account to the Facebook one but if I try to log into Facebook through Safari I have the same problem.

Even when I search it with the new name it will pull the page up but it has the old name listed on there. I can sign into the account with the new name as well, but once I sign in its the old name there. please fix if possible Instagram.

same issues as everyone else. was able to login to the app after a couple of tries, attempted to change my password, but it kept erroring out and closing the app. i tried to login via the website and was successful using the new password. logged out and had to retry a few times on the site. tried logging back in on the app, get a message saying to check my internet connection.

Server error, got logged out automatically, and can't get in, oh well no instigram for the moment. At least it isn't me only.

Stephanie Bello Yasay · 2 December 2015 - 20:38
· · Chrome 47.0 on Mac

I got the same error message! "You've been logged out of [username]. The account may have changed the password."

I was able to log in onto on my laptop just fine with my current password. But I was still unable to log onto the app, on my iPhone and iPad, so I am guessing the app is going through some issues at the moment. Using the app, I tried to reset my password using either my email or Facebook. The received the email so that was a good sign but the password link wasn't working. "Oops, an error occurred." When I tried to reset with Facebook, I got the same error.

So folks, I think Instagram has some bugs to fix with the app.
