Instagram users had a sigh of relief in Pakistan and across the globe after the platform restored functions following an almost two-hour outage on Friday morning.

At about 1:30am Pakistan time, users in the country, along with thousands across the globe, complained that they were unable to access it.

Down Detector, a website-outage tracker, confirmed Instagram went offline around the world.

"Outages were reported in Pakistan as well as other parts of the world," said  Down Detector.
