Snapchat down: Live updates as social media app crashes for users
Messaging app Snapchat has reportedly crashed for users and is not working.
The social media service, which allows users to share images and messages, went down at around lunchtime on Wednesday.
Disgruntled users took to Downdetector to report that they were having problems with Snapchat after the popular app went down for many users.
One wrote that they couldn't post to their story and had been left "fuming" while another said: "Logged out now unable to log in, saying oops we could not find the credentials, my details are correct."
A post from someone listed as 'Snapchat Admin' said the service "will shortly be back up and running" and added: "Please log out and log back in in the meantime to refresh your connection."
Downdetector saw the number of reports concerning Snapchat rise from 3,649 at 11.49am to 12,465 by 12.05pm.
The outage comes just over a week after a major service issue took Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger offline. You can read more about that here.
