If you’re having trouble accessing an internet site or service, it may not be your connection. Services that rely on Cloudflare for DNS and caching to help them stay online are currently inaccessible for many people. Affected services include Discord, Authy, Feedly and DownDetector (which is still faithfully notifying people about the issue on Twitter).

The issue may also be affecting people who rely on Cloudflare for their DNS resolution via its 1.1.1.1 service, if you use that then switching to your ISP’s servers or Google DNS (8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4) could help.

Cloudflare has acknowledged there is an issue, and said “a fix is being implemented.” Some have reported being able to access Discord again already, but we’re still seeing plenty of error pages.
