(NEXSTAR) — Users jumping onto Meta’s social media sites Tuesday morning found an unfortunate sign: issue warnings.

Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and Threads — all owned by Meta — were reportedly down Tuesday shortly after 9 a.m. CT, DownDetector reports.

On mobile, Facebook users were met with a pop-up reading “session expired, please log in again.” Tapping on the message would take them to a log-in screen, where users reported seeing a message reading “Unable to log in. An unexpected error occurred. Please try logging in again.” When trying to log in on a web browser, Facebook users were wrongly told the “password you’ve entered is incorrect.”


Those trying to access Facebook Messenger encountered the same situation.

On Instagram, users have been able to access most content but received a notification on their timeline that the feed could not be refreshed. When trying to access Instagram online, a message like the one below appears:

Meta’s newest app, Threads, also had trouble loading.

It’s currently unclear what is causing the outage.
