After the “Not seeing the list of followers and following” bug and many other bugs before that, Instagram users have faced another bug which is greeting a blank or white screen when they open the Instagram app or when they try to log into their account.

It didn’t seem to be a serious issue at first, but the number of users that faced the problem increased gradually. Users have reported that when they open Instagram and try to log in, they see a blank white screen instead of seeing the feed.

Why you see blank white screen on Instagram?

It means either you have poor connection or Instagram server is not working properly. The other reasons could be the mobile phone loading speed. Though, you should notice what kind of white screen you see.
If you see white Instagram on Instagram it could be because of:

  • Instagram server problem
  • Poor network connection
  • Mobile phone storage is full
  • Mobile phone loading speed
  • Old version of Instagram app

*If you see white screen on someone else profile, they might have deactivated the account, or changed the username, or blocked you.

How to fix Instagram blank white screen?

Some Instagram users have reported that they can fix the blank white screen page by logging into Instagram on desktop and then log in with their cell phone to the Instagram account. But there is no guarantee that you don’t face the blank white page anymore. So if it didn’t work, you should change your Instagram account’s password on the desktop version and then try to log in your account with your phone and check whether the blank white page issue has fixed.

Changing your Instagram password will logout your Instagram account from all other devices and allows you to log in your account through the app on your phone.

Other possible solutions to get rid of Instagram’s blank white screen issue:

  • Airplane mode
  • Update Instagram to the latest version
  • Check your connection
  • Clear cache
  • Turn off your phone
  • Force close Instagram
  • Uninstall and reinstall Instagram

  1. Instagram open

  2. After trying all of the above options, and uninstalling & reinstalling app and restarting phone countless times, the following steps eventually worked for me:
    1. Reinstall Instagram but don’t open it
    2. Go into Flight Mode
    3. Open Instagram
    4. Enter details in login screen
    5. Click login button
    6. Get error
    7. Turn LFight Mode off
    8. Go back to login and try login again

    BIZARRE… wonder if it will work for others?
