In March, Instagram, Facebook and Threads were down for many users, who complained of being suddenly logged out of their accounts.

Others reported being logged out without an option to log back in, while those with two-factor authentication struggled to get codes to complete their log-ins. The issue occurred on both, the app and the website.
