Reddit Down: Site Says Fix May Take ‘Some Time to Implement’

On Tuesday, Reddit experienced an issue that lasted for several hours, preventing many users from accessing the popular discussion site. The company did not provide an estimated time for when the issue would be resolved.

At 2:43 p.m. PT, Reddit's status page provided an update stating that a fix had been identified but it may take some time to implement. In the meantime, users were advised to prepare their bananas or eat them.

According to monitoring site Downdetector, user reports of issues accessing Reddit's

 website and apps surged around noon PT on Tuesday, with over 60,000 outage reports. Reddit's status page initially posted at 12:18 p.m. PT, "Investigating - Reddit is currently offline. We're working to identify the issue." It later stated that the problem was due to an "internal systems issue."

At 3:37 p.m. PT, Reddit's primary Twitter account tweeted, "Enjoy the productivity. We'll be up and running again soon."

Reddit boasts more than 100,000 active communities from various parts of the world that cover a wide range of topics and interests.

In the previous month, Reddit disclosed a "data security incident" where a hacker utilized "a sophisticated phishing campaign" to gain access to some internal documents and business information. The company stated that it became aware of the phishing attack on February 5th, and the information accessed may have included "limited Reddit code, limited contact information for a small number of company contacts and employees (current and former), as well as limited advertiser information." According to Reddit, the hacker did not access high-risk data such as credit card details, company financial information, account passwords, campaign strategy, or performance.

In December 2021, Reddit submitted a draft registration statement to the SEC for an initial public offering, which was kept confidential. The company has been valued at over $10 billion.

Reddit was launched in 2005 and was acquired by Condé Nast the following year. In 2011, the site was spun out by Condé Nast, while Advance Publications, the parent company of Condé Nast, still holds a minority stake.
