The death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was arrested by morality police in Tehran last week for her “improper clothing”, has sparked outrage over issues including freedom in the Islamic Republic and the economy reeling from sanctions.
NetBlocks also reported a “country loss of connectivity” on Iran Post’s mobile service provider and another company’s network.
London-based NetBlocks said WhatsApp servers were down on several internet providers, hours after they blocked Instagram services.
The group’s data shows an almost complete outage of internet service in parts of Iran’s western Kurdistan region since Monday, while the capital, Tehran, and other parts of the country have also faced turmoil since Friday when protests first erupted.
Two residents of Tehran and southern Iran said they can only send text messages and not photos on WhatsApp and that Instagram appears to be completely blocked.
