Instagram and Threads users are automatically getting logged out of their accounts

Instagram in app AH

Logging into social media accounts repeatedly can be a pain, which is why every social media application and website gives users the option to stay logged in. However, according to recent reports, several Instagram users and the ever-increasing number of Threads users are automatically getting logged out of their accounts.

Interestingly, these reports surfaced hours after Instagram went down for many users. The timing indicates that the problem might be related to the previous outage. Meta owns Instagram and Threads, so users wonder if there are ongoing internal problems within the company.

Instagram and Threads logging users out

According to several reports, Instagram and Threads users are automatically finding themselves logged out of their accounts. While some can get back in by simply entering their login credentials, others reportedly get the “logged in on another device” error. Thanks to this issue, users who use the direct messaging function to communicate with others, especially while abroad, are struggling to do so.

Interestingly, this isn’t the only issue users are facing. One user stated that his Instagram account got disabled “for community guidelines.” The kicker is that the user apparently hadn’t posted anything for two weeks. Additionally, all of the account’s content was about cars. Therefore, the account disabling might be an error on Instagram’s part due to ongoing internal issues.

Unfortunately, Meta has yet to comment on or even acknowledge the bug. So many users utilize Instagram and Threads daily. Therefore, the unannounced and seemingly randomly emerging issues might push some people to seek alternatives.

A constant trend of outages

March 2024 has been full of internal issues for Meta and its social media platforms. Earlier in the month, all Meta services faced a simultaneous outage, resulting in Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, and Threads being offline for hours. However, Meta quickly made a statement on its newest social media platform, Threads, saying the following.

“Earlier today, a technical issue caused people to have difficulty accessing some of our services. We resolved the issue as quickly as possible and we apologise for any inconvenience.”

The technical issue isn’t exclusive to Meta, as Google services reportedly faced outages shortly after. Services like Gmail and YouTube were down due to the outage, resulting in global unrest.

Instagram experienced downtime just hours before the issue of Instagram and Threads users getting logged out of their accounts automatically started. Users worldwide reported that the social media platform was inaccessible. Of course, this was before those affected started making memes out of the situation on rival platform X.
