Meta Apps Suffering Outages

Last week, WhatsApp was down in India and a few other countries. For nearly two hours, users were not able to send and receive messages on WhatsApp. Though the reason for the same remains unknown, it was restored soon. Following this, both WhatsApp and Instagram were down over the weekend.


Following the same, the Indian government asked Meta, which owns these apps for the cause of the outage. The Indian IT ministry has asked Meta, for an explanation for the massive outage that affected nearly the whole of its global userbase using the popular messaging platform.

The IT Ministry has reportedly asked Meta to submit a report about the two-hour outage that happened recently. The reason for the attack and other details need to be provided, the ministry reportedly said. The ministry is also analyzing if there was a cyberattack on Meta. Reports say Meta has to submit a report with details of the outage to the Cyber Emergency Response Team of India, CERT-In, the IT Ministry's cyber watchdog.
