How can I check if the problem is widespread?

The DownDetector is a useful tool to check if there are any problems on certain services – including social media platforms and phone lines.

People can report any issue they are experiencing on the website, which then creates a live outage map.

It shows how widespread the problem is and clarifies if it is only happening in a certain area.

There is also an option for users to comment and explain the problems they are experiencing.
