On Monday, October 4, 2021, WhatsApp, now owned by Meta, crashed alongside its sister apps, Facebook and Instagram. This outage lasted several hours with tens of millions of users, including businesses, affected across the world.
“To the huge community of people and businesses around the world who depend on us: we’re sorry. We’ve been working hard to restore access to our apps and services and are happy to report they are coming back online now,” Facebook wrote in a tweet after the October 2021 crash.
