Snapchat, the popular photo & video sharing app reported technical problems on Tuesday, with many login issues.

Many users mentioned only vague problems preventing them from using Snapchat, others were more descriptive, saying the app would freeze and in some cases log them out entirely.

The issues were reflected on the popular website Downdetector.

On Tuesday, the website's page for Snapchat showed a sharp influx of reports at around 9 a.m.

About 90 percent of the reports cited "logins" as their primary issue, with others citing "app" and "server" issues. 

By 10:30 a.m., the spike in reports persisted, with only a slight drop-off.

Snapchat was launched in 2011. It was first envisioned as an app that would allow users to send photos & videos to one other.

In reply to this issue, Snapchat Support twitted, "We're aware of an issue preventing some Snapchatters from logging in," the tweet read. "Hang tight, we are looking into it and working on a fix!".

The account had replied to numerous comments and messages about login problems but only with preprepared statements urging users to send further details via direct message.
