Hello Everyone! Social Media Fellow is back with another blog and today we will discuss some common errors while using Instagram and what to do if Instagram stopped working.
First of all, thank you so much for the previous post and I hope you will continue to share their informational posts in the future.
Let’s come straight to the point, what can you do if Instagram stopped working on your phone or showing some error.
Here are some of the steps to follow to ensure that you will get your answer to your question which is “Instagram not working today?”.
Check your internet connection.
Clear Cache and Data of the Instagram app.
Uninstall the app.
Make sure you are not using any VPN.
Reboot your phone.
Verify if Instagram has proper permissions to use Data
These five ways will possibly fix your Instagram issue. I am going to explain all of them thoroughly with pictures.
Check your internet connection
Checking your internet connection should be your first option if you find that Instagram suddenly stopped working. There are so many people including me who accidentally revoke internet access from Instagram application.
If your internet seems fine, check if you have any DATA SAVING application installed. Sometimes, data savers put a restriction on Instagram to use the Internet data connection to save data.
Also, if you are using mobile internet data, try using Wi-Fi. I don’t know why, but sometimes it works 😄.
Clear Cache and Data of the Instagram App
We can perform this action when we verify that our internet is completely fine and other apps are working without any issues.
Here is the issue that can be with the application itself. Clearing the cache and data of the app can be a possible solution.
If you are using iOS, you cannot perform this action. For Android users, go to Settings > Application > App Manager (This can be different in various phones). After that look for Instagram and hit clear data.
That’s it, open Instagram again and log in to your account again.
Uninstall the application
Uninstalling an app can something be handy if Instagram isn’t working on your iPhone, iPad or whatever device you are using.
For iPhones/iPods/iPads, long press on the Instagram app icon then select “Delete”.
For Android, long-press the app icon and select the uninstall option. For more information, check out this tutorial.
VPN stands for “virtual private network” and can sometimes block the Instagram app to connect with their servers.
Check if you have any application with name VPN at like DoomVPN or NortonVPN. If you get one, uninstall it and try to use the Instagram app again.
Reboot Your Phone
I know, this is not an unknown method. But trust me, I fixed most of the error whether in PC or mobile by rebooting the device.
So it’s worth giving a shot.
Verify if Instagram has proper permissions to use Data
In order to check if Instagram has enough permission to use data on your iOS or iPhone, go to setting and scroll down and click on Instagram and make sure the “Cellular Data” option is ENABLED.
Common Instagram Errors
Error: You can’t follow any more people
Solution: Instagram has a limit of a number of followers you can follow. It is 7,500. Whether you are a celebrity or a normal person, you cannot follow more than 7,500 people.
Error: Not able to delete comment on Instagram
Solution: This is a common error on Instagram that sometimes it says not able to delete comments while deleting it. The reason for this is that Instagram has already deleted the comment and the page isn’t refreshed. Close Instagram and open it again and go to the comment you want to delete, it would be removed already.
Error: Instagram Stopped Working
Solution: Sometimes, while using Instagram it suddenly stops working and says Instagram Stopped working. The problem can be under your phone software. Here is the solution, uninstall the application and reboot your phone. Install it again.
Hello Everyone and welcome back to Social Media Fellow. Today I have something very interesting to share with you. Do you ever wonder how to find people on Instagram with their phone numbers? If yes, then this post is definitely for you.
As usual, I am going to give you a quick answer to this question. In order to find people on Instagram using their Phone Number, you just have to add their number in your contact list. Once you add the person in your contact list, go to Instagram and enable “Find people using contacts” in your settings. Instagram will show you the person’s profile to follow. That’s it!
The process is very simple but I will explain it step by step with pictures. Here is the complete guide to find someone on Instagram with their number.
How to Find Someone on Instagram with their Phone Number?
The first step is the add the number as a contact in your contact list.
Then go to Instagram and click on the Profile icon.
Click on the icon located at the top right corner as shown in the pictures below.
Select “Discover People” option located at the end of the list.
At the top of the list, you will see “Connect Contacts” and a connect button in front of it.
Click on connect button and select “Get Started”.
If Instagram request for any permission, Click allow.
That’s it. Refresh the page and you will see a list of Instagram Profiles of those who are in your contacts.
This method is very useful in looking out friends and relatives on Instagram. But, there are still some people who face various issues such as discover people on Instagram isn’t working. So, let’s talk about this problem and solution for it.
Discover People on Instagram Not Working
This issue is basically an application bug which most of the people face. The solution for this problem is to uninstall the application and then reinstall it.
This will clear all the cache from Instagram app and you will be able to see your contacts in discover people list.
This error can also occur if the person you are looking on Instagram doesn’t use their phone number while signing up. If that is the case, ask the person for any other phone number if they have.
Why “Discover People” feature is useful?
“Discover People” is the most useful feature of Instagram. It is also one of the most less known feature that anyone knows. Apart from finding people using their phone numbers, you can even connect your Facebook to it and can see all your Facebook friends’ Instagram profile.
This is really useful if you want to connect with your friends and family over Instagram who are already connected on Facebook.
