WhatsApp Is Down: A significant disruption impacting the messaging service, WhatsApp, is ongoing. Users were greeted with a “connecting” notice when problems with the service first surfaced at about 3 AM ET. An error message with the message “Make sure your computer has an active internet connection” may appear if you try to use WhatsApp online. More than 60,000 reports of service problems have been sent to Downdetector, and it appears that the outage is impacting people everywhere.
In a statement to The Verge, Meta representative Joshua Breckman said, \”We\’re aware that some individuals are now having problems sending messages and we\’re working to restore App for everyone as quickly as possible.”
Since the service fell offline last year as part of a significant outage that also affected Instagram, Messenger, Oculus, and Facebook, this is the first significant disruption to affect App. It took over six hours for that outage to be fixed and for WhatsApp to resume operation. According to Meta, then known as Facebook, a router configuration change caused that significant disruption. Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram are all operating normally now; WhatsApp is the only app that isn’t.
Even though WhatsApp outages are still relatively infrequent, they significantly impact global communications because more than two billion people use the app each month. Brazilian employees jobs were lost last year when WhatsApp went offline.
