Instagram is one of the most consolidated and stable social networks of recent times, even if, as we have already seen on WhatsApp or Facebook, it it is error free. In fact, one of the best known is when Instagram shuts down or just stop, mistakes that do not carry a higher risk but whose conflict in some cases causes despair and some frustration. But don't worry, you are neither the first nor the last person to present these errors, that's why today in The Power Of The Green Android we are going to give you a series of tips to try to fix it in the simplest way possible.

Why does Instagram close by itself when I open it? 2022

Whenever that I go to Instagram and one thing closes me if I was clear and it is for one of these reasons:

  • The application needs to be updated.
  • You need to update your Android system's Webview to the latest version.
  • You have problems with the application cache.

For this reason, below I will explain the steps I follow every time Instagram closes for me, in case one method doesn't work for you, just move on to the next

Reboot the device

If the instagram opening closes, the first thing we should do is restart the our Smartphone. Yes, it may seem simple but as a general rule we usually don't restart the phone for days so we don't close the background applications and in the long run the device tends to fail. If after restarting the mobile I enter Instagram and it closes again, let's go directly to the next step.

Update Instagram to the latest version

Always keep Instagram updated to the latest version available in the Google Play Store, for this you just have to follow these steps.

  • Go to Play Store > My Apps & Games > Updates.

Update WebView to the latest version

In some cases, not having the component Webview updated to the latest version  can cause  arrest of some apps like TikTok, Brawl Stars or Gmail. To update it, I recommend you follow the instructions in these 2 tutorials:

  • The Google application has stopped working.
  • MSA is still not working.

What to do if Instagram closes by itself? How do I fix it? 2022

If all the above steps didn't work for you and Instagram keeps crashing on Android only, one method that usually works a lot is to delete application data and cache. To do this, the first step will be to enter the phone settings.

So let's log in «Applications».

In «Applications» we search for «Instagram», once identified we enter inside.

In this screen call «About the application» we will have to enter "Archiving".

Here we go all the way down and do the following:

  1. We empty the cache.
  2. We delete the data.

When you click to clear data, a message will appear saying that we will lose the entire application database, don't worry, this action does nothing but clean and leave the Instagram application as factory, all our data and photos will be on our Instagram account. All we have to do is re-enter the app and log in with our account.

Now you know what to do when the instagram app closes by itself, if you have any questions or want to share your experience, you can do so in the comment box. Don't forget that you have the different social network buttons at your disposal to share this content. Thank you very much for everything!
