Snapchat suffered a major outage on Wednesday evening, preventing many people from receiving and sending messages.
The Allestoringen.nl website has received thousands of complaints since 18:30 from people who were unable to connect to the server. As a result, no photos and videos of users came in and nothing could be sent.
People were shown an error message when they tried to get new messages. It is not known where the problems came from. The outage occurred in Europe and the United States.
Snapchat lets Twitter know that the problems were solved around 9 p.m.
