Snapchat is down? On the morning of October 13, 2021, outages were reported across the country.
This comes on the heels of a major outage involving Facebook and other wireless services, although there is no indication that they are related. Down Detector is a site that tracks social media outages around the world. On October 13, 2021, at 9:00 am EST, the site reported: “User reports indicate problems on Snapchat.”
The Snapchat support team confirmed the issues, writing on Twitter: “We are aware that some Snapchat users are having trouble using the app at this time. Waiting! We are investigating it! “
We’re aware that some Snapchatters are having issues using the app right now – hang tight, we’re looking into it!

Some people were relieved to find that Snapchat wasn’t working and their messages weren’t just being ignored. A lot of people can relate to that, right? Another Twitter user had the same thought and wrote: “Thank goodness what is down is Snapchat, I thought you did not like #snapchatdown.”
