Facebook apps and platforms are down worldwide
 4 October 2021

Internet users have experienced today an abrupt breakdown in all main apps owned by Facebook; which are, Facebook, WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram. Such a breakdown occurred at 6.00 P.M. Cairo Time, as Facebook had announced their service was hugely affected due to some breakdowns in their servers worldwide. Facebook had also pointed out that work is currently underway to solve this problem. In fact, the breakdown had caused several problems across the whole world, rather than a certain country, in terms of opening and using apps or in terms of sending as well as receiving messages via such apps.

It is worth noting that a specialized team from NTRA is closely following up the problem, at the international level, as well as studying its impact on telecom services across the Egyptian market.
