2 mins read


Snapchat down reports are on the rise today, with thousands of users of the hugely popular chat app experiencing service disruption today. Independent outage monitor Down Detector has recorded a massive spike in Snapchat down reports. At the time of writing Down Detector UK has registered a peak of more than 14,000 reports with downdetector.com recording over 30,000.

According to Down Detector stats, the issues affecting users at the most are problems with the Snapchat app itself, posting content and server connection.

While on Twitter Snapchat users have reported issues with Snaps not sending.

The official Snapchat Support Twitter account is yet to issue a comment on the reported outage.

But the @Snapchatsupport account has been replying to users of the Android and iOS app that are being hit with difficulties today.

Replying to one the Snapchat Support Twitter wrote: “Thanks for letting us know, we’re looking into this!”

The latest Snapchat issues come in the wake of the huge outage last week that took Facebook, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Instagram offline for six hours.

That outage at the start of last week was the biggest outage in Facebook’s history, and was followed by another Instagram outage on Friday.
