My Instagram app freezes while processing a photo.

If you're using Instagram and you get stuck while processing a photo, please try force quitting the app.

Apple iOS

To force quit:

  1. Leave the Instagram app by pressing the Home button on your phone. The Home button is the physical button at the bottom of your phone with the white square on it.
  2. Double-click the Home button and a tray will pop up.
  3. Press and hold the Instagram icon for 5 seconds until the icon starts to shake.
  4. Tap the red minus button that pops up on the Instagram icon. This will force quit the app, and you should be able to log in normally after that.


To force quit:

  1. Leave the Instagram app.
  2. Open the Settings app on your phone.
  3. Tap Applications > Manage applications > Instagram > Force Stop.
