What's changed about the new Chappy?

The biggest change we’ve made is how we approach everything we do behind the scenes.

What is Bumble?

Bumble was born out of a desire to reinvent the antiquated rules of dating. We empower women by giving them the ability to control the conversation when dating, finding friends, and networking online. Bumble has made it necessary, and therefore acceptable, for women to make the first move. This is extremely significant: Prompting women to initiate the conversation has led to the highest post-match chat rate in the industry. The unique model of putting women in charge and employing robust reporting has allowed Bumble to achieve incomparably low reports of harassment and abuse. Bumble is a safe platform for people to connect in dating, friendship, and networking. Things change when women are in control.

[Note: This feature is currently in testing, and is only available to users located in the UK, Canada and the US. We hope to introduce Reactions in more regions soon.]

Want to make yourself stand out as soon as you match with someone on Bumble? Now you can with our Reactions feature! Here’s how it works:

If you have the ability to make the first move, you’ll now be able to react and comment on someone’s photos or profile prompts. Using reactions will also count as your first move so once you match the other person will be able to take it from there. 

If you don’t have first move privileges, you’ll still be able to react to a user’s photos and profile prompts using emojis. However, your reaction will only be revealed after the other user has swiped right, commented, or reacted to your profile in some way. 

Reacting to a profile on the app can be done in two easy steps:

  • Swipe up on the photo or profile prompt that you want to react to on someone’s Bumble profile. 
  • Choose your reaction or send a comment (if you have first move privileges).

Note for users on Bumble Web: If you are using Bumble web, you will be able to see reactions someone has sent you, but you will not be able to send them. Reactions can only be sent if you are using the Bumble app.

I’ve received an unsolicited lewd photo, what should I do? (Texas)

The following article applies only to our users based in Texas or those who need to report a Texas resident. If you’re not in Texas, don’t worry, we’ve still got your back! Please click here for more information.

At Bumble we have always been committed to keeping our users safe by making the Hive a place where consent is not an option, it’s a rule. In 2018 we felt we needed to take this passion offline and fought to pass House Bill 2789 in our home state of Texas which classifies the sending of unsolicited lewd photos as a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $500. As of September 1st, 2019 this bill will become law in Texas.

Under the law, a photo is classified as lewd if a person’s intimate parts are exposed, a person is engaging in sexual conduct, or if it shows the covered genitals of a male in a discernibly turgid state. If this has happened to you there are several options available.

I’ve received an unsolicited lewd photo and want to pursue legal action.
For any legal action to be taken the user must report the offense to local law enforcement via their non-emergency line within two years of receiving the photo.

Please note that Bumble is not responsible for and will not report any lewd photos to the authorities ourselves. However, users can also report the offense on Bumble via our in-app Block & Report feature or contact us. Our team will investigate the case and take appropriate action in line with our Guidelines. This does not take the place of reporting the offense to the authorities.

For more information about how to report a user in-app please check out our post here.

Note that due to privacy guidelines, we can’t always reveal the results of a report, but please know that we take every report seriously and handle each case with care.

I’ve received an unsolicited lewd photo and do not want to pursue legal action.
In this instance, we still encourage our users to report the offense on Bumble via our in-app Block & Report feature or contact us. Our team will investigate the case and take appropriate action in line with our Guidelines.

I’ve received a lewd photo on another platform and want to pursue legal action.
In order to pursue legal action please reach out to local law enforcement via their non-emergency line within two years of receiving the photo.

What is Encounters?

Encounters is at the core of the Chappy experience. We show you photos of users who match your interests, and you decide if you want to meet them. Just set your search criteria , flick through your choices and see who you like.

You can increase how often you appear in Encounters when other Chappy users are looking at it. Just get some Extra shows

Why can't I start a conversation with somebody I've swiped right on?

After two users have mutually right-swiped one another, a match is created. After a match is created, you'll see a notification appear on your screen. From here, you can either start a chat or continue swiping through other profiles.

After a match has been created, what follows depends on the user’s gender.

On Bumble, women always make the first move. If she doesn't initiate a conversation within 24 hours, the connection expires.

Men cannot initiate a conversation with women. However, they can show that they're especially interested in her by using the daily 24-hour extend feature.

Bumble was designed to counter problematic and antiquated hetero dating norms, so the above rules do not apply to same-sex matches or to connections made in Bumble BFF. In these cases, either person has 24 hours to make the first move before the connection expires.

Why should I photo verify?

As we’re hoping you know by now, honesty is our thing. Part of that means making sure everyone on Chappy is who they say they are. After all, why pretend to be someone else when you have so much going for you?

To help us do that, we ask you to verify yourself. It’s not difficult – all you need is a couple of minutes and the camera on your phone or computer to take the photo. And don’t worry, we’ll never share your photo on your profile or anywhere else.

If you have any problems, you can contact us for more help.

How can I buy Chappy Premium?

How can I unfavorite someone?

To unfavourite someone, open your Connections folder and tap on the coloured star icon next to that person's name. It will no longer be filled in with colour, which means the person is no longer a favourite.

Can I delete Date mode?

Already in a relationship? Made a meaningful connection and no longer on the dating scene?

Yes, you can remove Date mode while still sticking around on Bizz and BFF! Follow these quick steps:

  1. Head into your settings by tapping the silhouette icon followed by the grey gear in the upper left-hand corner of the app
  2. You can then toggle off the button next to ‘Date Mode’ to disable the mode
  3. Once you press the button, you will be prompted with a message to let you know that your dating profile will no longer be visible and all your connections will be gone from this mode

We recommend taking a screenshot of any conversations that are special to you before proceeding.
If you ever change your mind, just head back into your in-app settings and toggle ‘Date Mode’ back on again.

Why has my match/message disappeared?

If a connection is no longer visible or if your conversation has disappeared, the user in question has unmatched you, deleted their account, or they've been blocked by Bumble.

Don't worry - there are plenty of bees in the Hive. Keep swiping!

What are Profile Qs?

If you want your matches to know more about you, you can answer three questions which we’ll display on your profile.

Other users will be able to see it when they swipe on you, so they can get to know you straight away- they could find out that pineapple on pizza is a big no-no for you for example!

Chappy is all about making meaningful connections with people you meet, so we’ve created icebreakers to do just that- break the ice.

If you’d like to add these to your profile, follow these easy steps:

  • Select the “Edit” pencil icon in the top right corner of your profile
  • Tap “Profile Qs” under the “About You” section
  • Choose the answers you like to your favourite questions- or create your own unique answers for extra flavour!

If you don’t like the answers you chose, or you just want to change them up, just tap on your answers in the “Profile Qs” section and update them.

Have fun!

What are my Likes and how can I access them?

Your Likes are all those people who swiped right on you in Encounters! You can access them if you activate Chappy Premium.

I've forgotten my password. What do I do?

No need to panic! Simply tap on Already have an account? on the home screen and then on Forgot login or password? at the bottom of the page. Enter the same contact details that you used to create your profile, and follow the on screen instructions to reset your password.

What is Private Detector and how does it work?

Our algorithm determines if a photo you’ve been sent may contain a lewd image and gives you the power to choose whether or not you’d like to view it.

If you’ve been sent a lewd photo, the Bumble app will warn you that it may contain nudity before you decide to open it. If you do not want to see this image, simply select ‘Decline’ under the photo. The image will be deleted from your chat and you will be prompted with the option to block the user. If you chose to block this person the chat will be removed from both parties' message screen and you will no longer be able to view one another's profiles.

If the Private Detector has recognized a photo as potentially lewd and you would like to view it, just select the photo, confirm that you wish to view it and continue chatting.

If you are sending someone a photo that is suspected to contain lewd imagery, the Private Detector will remind you that sending such an image may lead to you being reported. Consent is crucial. If you send an unsolicited lewd photo and are reported, you will be blocked from using the app.

Please note, this feature is only available on iOS devices in the United States at this time.

Go to bumble.com to log in or create a profile using your Facebook, Apple ID or phone number. If you're an existing user you will be directed to the same profile you see on the mobile app. New users can set up their profile for any mode on Bumble Web.

Here are some tips to help you navigate Bumble Web:

  • The arrow keys can be used to ‘swipe’ left or right as well as scroll up or down to view a profile.
  • You can also click the checkmark to indicate swiping to the right or the ‘X’ for a left swipe.
  • If you have Coins a heart button will appear so you can activate SuperSwipe.
  • If you match with someone the Boom screen will pop up just like in the app. If you have First Move privileges, you can message from there or click into your Match Queue on the left to contact your matches.
  • You can video chat with your matches by clicking on the grey video camera icon in the upper right-hand corner of the chat screen.
  • If you’re a Bumble Boost subscriber you can view your Beeline by clicking the users in the green circle to the left of the screen, just like in the app. You can also activate our Backtrack feature by clicking the rewind button that appears to the left of the swipe navigation if you accidentally swipe left.
  • To switch modes between Date, BFF, and Bizz click on the Bumble logo at the top center of the page. A dropdown displaying all three modes will appear for you to choose the kind of connections you're interested in.

How do I activate Auto Top-up?

How can I change Interface Language?

First thing’s first: welcome back!

If you deleted your profile less than 30 days ago, you should have a confirmation email from us that includes a reactivation link. Click that and you’ll be able to jump right back in.

Safety on the App

On Bumble, your safety is important to us. Our Community Guidelines were created to ensure that everyone in the Hive upholds our values of kindness, respect, and equality. In addition to our guidelines, we are grateful for a strong community that helps hold each other accountable. We will never hesitate to take action when someone has broken the rules – we’ve got your back!

We will always be here to support you, however we also believe that our users should feel empowered to exercise good judgment and take safety precautions when meeting new people. Here are a few tips from our team on how to stay safe when connecting on Bumble.

1. Be Cautious about Sharing Personal Information

Your phone number, home address, and any other private details about your life are all yours. Consider keeping them top secret until you feel confident that you can trust the person you’re chatting with. If you wouldn’t share this info with a stranger in real life, it’s probably best to hang onto it.

Safety can even start before the first message. Be aware that your profile can contain lots of personal information as well. If the information in your profile could be used to locate you, it might be worth omitting. For example:

  • It’s 100% okay to leave out specifics about where you work. We love seeing jobs listed as “Account Manager” at “Tech Company” or “Barista” at “Locally-owned shop.”
  • Do you love solo hikes at dusk? It may be safest to avoid posting a photo that shows you in a specific location you frequent.

2. Never Share Financial Information or Transfer Money

Even after trust is established, there is never any reason to share your bank information. If someone asks for payment information (e.g., bank routing details, mother’s maiden name, credit card numbers), report it immediately.

3. Use Our Block/Report Feature

We have a team of moderators working around the clock to keep out spam, fake profiles, and anyone who violates our Community Guidelines. The best way to bring our attention to an account that sets off any red flags, is to use our in-app reporting option. All reports are kept completely anonymous, so a reported user will never know who flagged their account.

If you ever miss the opportunity to report someone within the app (e.g., because you unmatched with the user or you deleted your account), it’s not too late! You can always make a report via our Contact Us button in the app, or by emailing us. Our dedicated and caring Support Team takes every report seriously and is always willing to help.

Not sure if what you experienced is worthy of a report? Trust your gut; if it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. Our team of moderators will investigate and take an appropriate action. Meeting new people shouldn't be scary, and a healthy dose of preparation can make all the difference in helping you feel at ease.

How do I cancel my Chappy Premium subscription?

You will be able to cancel your Chappy Premium subscription by going to your 'Payment settings' in the Settings menu. If you subscribed to Chappy Premium via SMS, please follow the instructions you were given when you subscribed. Please contact our Customer Care team if you have any problem by going to Feedback in the Settings menu.

How can I unfavorite someone?

To unfavorite someone simply visit their profile, click on the icon in the top right corner and select 'Remove from favourites'.

If you already had a conversation with the user you can go to your 'Messages' section and click on the star icon next to the users's name. It will turn white, which means the user is no longer one of your favourites.

Why should I photo verify?

As we’re hoping you know by now, honesty is our thing. Part of that means making sure everyone on Chappy is who they say they are. After all, why pretend to be someone else when you have so much going for you?

To help us do that, we ask you to verify yourself. It’s not difficult – all you need is a couple of minutes and the camera on your phone or computer to take the photo. And don’t worry, we’ll never share your photo on your profile or anywhere else.

If you have any problems, you can contact us for more help.

How can I manage my online safety?

At Chappy we take online security very seriously. We strongly advise that you never give out personal or financial information over the internet. We will never ask you for this information via Chappy messenger. If you have any concerns or questions about safety please send us a message and our Customer Care team will be happy to help.

What do the coloured dots next to a users name mean?

Coloured dots inside your connections menu indicate the online status of the user. Green dot means that the person is now online, and orange dot means the person was online recently.

  • The photo is too dark, too light or too blurry.
  • The gesture doesn't match the gesture we showed you in our example.

Why do I need to confirm some of my information when I try to log in?

The security of our users is very important to us and therefore we might ask you to confirm some of your details. No need to worry as we will only ask you to confirm details that you added in the past.

  • If we call you then you'll be prompted to enter a number into a field on your screen; simply enter the last four digits of the number we're calling you from.
  • If we ask you to confirm your email address or phone number please do so. You don't need to have access to your email address or phone number as you only need to enter it.
  • If we're asking for your password but you do not remember it, just click on the 'Forgot Password' button and follow the instructions sent to your email.

If you have problems with confirming your details please contact our Customer Care Team and we will look into it for you.

How can I unfavorite someone?

If you are not sure why people aren't getting back to you, it might be due to the content of your message and therefore it may be beneficial to try another approach.

Try to be more creative and use something that will catch a user's attention. For example, rather than copying and pasting the same message to everyone you like, read their profile first, see what their interests are and send an appropriate message.

Safety IRL

Update: Right now, we're committed to powering positive and healthy virtual connections. That means a key component of staying safe means staying home as much possible. We recommend virtual dates using our video chat feature. However, the following tips are still great to save and keep in mind for the future!

💛 💛 💛

On Bumble, your safety is important to us. Our Community Guidelines were created to ensure that everyone in the Hive upholds our values of kindness, respect, and equality. In addition to our guidelines, we are grateful for a strong community that helps hold each other accountable. We will never hesitate to take action when someone has broken the rules – we've got your back!

We will always be here to support you, however we also believe that our users should feel empowered to exercise good judgment and take safety precautions when meeting new people. Here are few tips from our team on how to stay safe when connection on Bumble:

1. Channel Your Inner Secret Agent

Some people might prefer to preserve a little mystery before a date, but it's always okay to do a little homework before meeting a new person in real life. Do they have any skeletons big enough to have made the news? Are they the webmaster for a popular Buffy fan page? It never hurts to know these things early.

2. Ask for Verification

No one wants to be catfished. If you're meeting a match in person that doesn't have that little blue checkmark, ask them to verify beforehand. It takes less than a minute – here's how!

3. Set up a Video Chat or Voice Call

Scheduling a video chat or voice call can be a great way to ensure that you really vibe and that you feel comfortable moving things to an in-person meetup. Who wants to brave traffic unless they've had the comfort of a great call first?

4. Meet in a Public Place

This isn't an 80s rom-com; we don't recommend having a date pick you up at your place or vice versa. It can be a lot of fun to pick a place you've both never been to before – that new food truck you've been meaning to try, the roller rink you pass every day on your commute – the possibilities are endless, and more importantly, safer. At a total loss for where to go? See if we have Bumble Spot in your area!

Meeting in a lively public place also means you can enlist the help of staff or other patrons if you need help. If something doesn't feel right, it's always ok to prioritize your safety. Want to slip away? You can ask a waiter to give your date a note. Need your match to give you space? Ask a bouncer to have them escorted out. Keeping yourself safe is more important than anything else.

5. Tell Someone You Trust

Whether it's your mom, your roommate, or your entire group text of BFFs – tell someone (1) where you're going, (2) who you're meeting, and (3) when you get home. If it makes you feel more comfortable, you can even send your person a screenshot of your date's profile for good measure. You can temporarily share your location (iPhone / Android) on your phone with your inner circle.

Meeting a new person shouldn't be scary, and a healthy dose of preparation can make all the difference in helping you feel at ease.

How does messaging work on Bumble?

Connection is a two-way street. Before a conversation can get off the ground both users have to have swiped to the right to create a match.

DATE MODE:

Users who have First Move privileges will be able to send the first message directly from the ‘Boom’ screen which appears once two users match, or you can go to your connections screen by tapping the grey logo in the upper right-hand corner to view and message your matches.

Remember: First Moves are time-sensitive! You have 24 hours from the time you match with someone to send the first message. If you’re feeling nervous, try using one of our Conversation Starters to break the ice.

If you don’t have First Move privileges you have to wait for the other user to send the first message. Once they do you will be able to reply to them to lock in your connection.

Remember: You have 24 hours to respond to a First Move! If you see that a connection is expiring soon you can use your Daily Extend feature to give them a little more time to break the ice.

BFF MODE:

Because BFF only shows users who identify as the same gender, everyone has First Move privileges. This means either party is able to send the first message once a match is created either from the ‘Boom’ screen or their connections.

Remember: The 24-hour limit still applies in BFF Mode so don’t miss out on the chance to connect!

BIZZ MODE:

Because networking can sometimes be a bit more of a process, Bizz Mode works a little differently.

Once a match is established, users with First Move privileges have seven days to send the first message from the ‘Boom’ screen or their connections. From the time the first message is sent, users without First Move privileges have seven days to respond in order to lock in the connection.

Why isn't my Bumble Boost working?

What is Bumble Web?

We aren’t saying you should swipe through the Hive from your desktop at work but we are saying that Bumble Web lets you log in or create an account right from your browser.

Bumble Web functions are very similar to the Bumble mobile app. Go to bumble.com to log in or create a profile using your Facebook account, Apple ID, or phone number. If you're an existing user you will be directed to the same profile you see on the mobile app. New users can set up their profile for any of our three modes on Bumble Web.

Here are some tips to help you navigate Bumble Web:

  • You can also click the checkmark to indicate swiping to the right or the ‘X’ for a left swipe.
  • You can click on the yellow star icon between the checkmark and the ‘X’  to SuperSwipe. 
  • Once you swipe left, a rewind button appears to the left of the swipe navigation. Click this button to activate Backtrack.
  • If you match with someone, the Boom screen will pop up just like in the app. If you have First Move privileges, you can message from there or click into your Match Queue on the left to start a conversation with your matches.
  • You can video chat with a match by clicking on the grey video camera icon on the top right corner of the chat screen after you’ve exchanged at least one message.
  • If you’re a Bumble Boost subscriber, you can view your Beeline by clicking the users in the green circle to the left of the screen.
  • To switch modes between Date, BFF, and Bizz go to your settings and select the mode you want to use.

When do Bumble matches expire? And what happens once they do?

In heterosexual matches, women have 24 hours to make the first move before the connection expires. Once they’ve sent their first message, their match has 24 hours to respond, or the connection expires.

In same-sex matches, either person is encouraged to make the first move within 24 hours. The other person has 24 hours to respond, or the connection expires.

We understand that our users are busy and may not always be able to get to a new match within 24 hours.

How large can my photos be, and what types of files can I upload?

We accept JPEG and PNG files. The file size limit is 128MB for photos, and their dimension must be at least 200 x 200 pixels.

Consent on Bumble and IRL

Consent is required at all times. Everyone on Bumble is expected to discuss and respect boundaries. This includes never making assumptions about what someone is comfortable with.

On Bumble, we have a zero tolerance policy for unsolicited lewd photos. If your match hasn’t given clear consent by saying they want a nude photo (or anything that could be perceived as sexual content), don’t send it. Period. If you receive a photo you didn’t consent to, you can report it at any time.

In healthy partnerships, it’s important to both listen to the other person(s) and read their non-verbal queues. If they seem uncomfortable, unsure, or unable to consent, stop and don’t pursue anything further. Furthermore, remember that consent can always be withdrawn at any time.

If something happens on the app, via text, or in person, know that the entire Hive cares about you and wants to make sure you’re supported. Please know that you can get in touch with us and reach out to a resource in your area.

All you need to do to add a new login method is:

  • Head into your settings and scroll down to ‘login methods’

Some translations contain bits of code such as {{gift}} that don't have to be translated. Just translate the rest of the sentence, and add these bits of code in a way that makes sense within the sentence. The system will automatically pull the correct translation of {{gift}} to add it to your sentence. Make sure you don't forget any bits of coding, or the system won't let you save your translation.

Why do I have to show my school or job information?

One of the most important aspects of the Bumble experience is that our users provide reliable information on their profiles.

Job and education information provide you with a deeper understanding of who you’re swiping on and who’s swiping on you. Pulling this information from your Facebook profile means these details are more likely to be authentic and reliable.

If you don’t want to show your school or job information for privacy reasons, you can select an old occupation and/or school, change your Facebook information to be less specific, or delete these details from your Facebook profile.

Alternatively, you can deny Bumble access to your work and education information during the account creation process.

Am I penalized for deleting and recreating my profile?

If you've deleted and recreated several Bumble profiles in succession we do not show your account less or 'shadow ban' you from the platform. However, we have found that users who create multiple accounts in a short time (e.g. making five profiles in the span of two months) tend to have fewer matches.

This occurs as users are less likely to swipe right on a profile they’ve seen multiple times. Coming across the same profile frequently can cause users to think they are experiencing a technical issue or suspect that your profile may be spam--which often leads to a left swipe and a negative experience for everyone.

If you need to take a break from Bumble we strongly recommend using the Snooze feature which allows you to step away without deleting your profile. You can learn more about Snooze here.

If you’re having a hard time making connections with your existing profile, be sure you’re using all the fantastic features available to you in the Hive such as adding Badges and Profile Prompts and check out our blog The Buzz for some pro tips.

Please note: Per our Terms & Conditions we reserve the right at our sole discretion to terminate or suspend any account at any time without liability and without the need to give prior notice.

Filters are a feature on Bumble which helps you curate the users who appear in your Swipe Deck.

The filters for who you’re interested in connecting with (available in Date and Bizz), age, and (in many regions) distance are chosen when you create your account and can be changed at any time. Once you’ve indicated those initial preferences you have the option to set additional Advanced Filters.

Everyone can set up to two Advanced Filters while Bumble Boost subscribers are able to choose an unlimited number of Advanced Filters. It’s important to note that you can only select a filter if you’ve self-identified in that category (e.g. if you haven’t indicated your personal stance on smoking you cannot filter for non-smokers).

Not looking for the same thing in a friend as you are for a date? Don’t sweat it! Each of our three modes, Date, BFF, and Bizz, has unique filter options so no matter the mode you’re able to find the connections you’re looking for.

What is the Beeline?

[Note: We’re currently beta-testing new versions of Bumble subscriptions in some regions, be sure to read this article in its entirety to see if you’re in one of the test countries.*]

Ever since we were kids pulling petals off flowers chanting, “They love me, they love me not,” dating has been a guessing game. While the mystery can be fun, sometimes you just want to have the answers--that’s why we made the Beeline. Your Beeline fills with users who’ve swiped to the right on you but who you haven’t swiped on just yet. We call these folks admirers. Because your admirers have already made their interest known, there's no guesswork needed.

Legacy Bumble Boost subscribers are able to not only view the Beeline and swipe on their admirers, but they’re also able to apply their filters to their Beeline for a more curated experience. If you aren’t subscribed to Boost you will still see the Beeline though you will not be able to view your admirers.

You can view your Beeline by following these steps:

  1. Tap on the grey chat bubble in the lower right-hand corner of the screen
  2. Locate the pixelated square to the left of your Match Queue (Note: Sometimes the Beeline will be empty so you may not always see this)
  3. Tap the pixelated square to view your admirers or sign up for Bumble Boost

* If you are located in Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Canada or the UK, the Beeline will now only be available as part of our Bumble Premium subscription.

What's the difference between a match and an admirer?

Imagine it: You’re swiping along when you come across an amazing profile. You get a little excited, maybe you’re already thinking about your first move. Holding your breath you slide them to the right only for that magical Boom! Screen to appear. Because both you and this other user have swiped to the right you two are now a match.

All of your most recent matches will appear right above your messages in your Match Queue. Once a conversation gets going, they’ll move down into your messages.

Admirers are a bit different. These users have swiped to the right on your profile (because, duh, you’re awesome) but you haven’t swiped to the left or right on them yet. If you’re a Bumble Boost subscriber you can actually take a peek at your admirers in the Beeline and decide from there if you want to swipe to the left or right.

Remember: Sometimes an admirer won’t appear in your swipe deck because they don’t fit your filters (e.g. age, distance, or advanced filters like astrological sign). We recommend switching up your filters from time to time, you never know who may surprise you!

What are Payment settings?

In Payment settings you can manage your payment method and Auto Top-up, view your credit balance, add credits and cancel Chappy Premium.

I accidentally swiped left, can I undo it?

If you've accidentally swiped left, you can tap the arrow on the top left corner of your screen. 

To Backtrack in Bumble Web tap the two arrows next to the ‘X’ icon.

How can I buy credits on the Chappy Mobile website?

Go to your profile page and select credits, then follow the instructions. You can use Chappy credits to use our 'Spotlight' service, add more votes in Encounters or increase your daily contact limit.

Why has my photo been moderated?

We work hard to ensure that Bumble is a safe and empowering platform for all of our users. Our photo moderation rules are in place to protect our community.

If you photo has been moderated, it will most likely be for one of the following reasons:

  • Your photo contains erotic content
  • You're wearing swimwear or underwear. Swimwear is OK in a pool or beach setting, but no bathroom mirror selfies or similar are allowed
  • Your photo is of someone under 18 by themselves
  • Your face is not clearly visible for some reason. This can include the image file being too small, your face being obscured, or too many filters being used
  • Your photo contains a watermark (this is only OK in Bizz mode)
  • Your photo has a caption or text laid over it
  • You have uploaded a photo of someone who is not you
  • Your photo contains firearms (more on this here)

Can I search for a specific person on Bumble?

Bumble was designed to help you make brand new connections with people in your area, so we currently do not have the option to search for specific people.

I don't have a webcam to verify my profile with a photo. What can I do?

Don't worry! If you don't have a webcam just use your phone camera by accessing your profile on your mobile phone. If you don't have a camera on your phone just ask a friend to borrow theirs or use an internet cafe to complete the process.

Why am I being charged again?

If you are being charged again and you are not sure why please check if you currently have a Chappy Premium subscription or if you have the Auto-Top up feature turned on for credits:

To cancel your Chappy Premium subscription made via iTunes, go to the settings of your iPhone or iPad, choose 'iTunes and App Store', then tap your Apple ID and 'View Apple ID'. Enter your password, scroll down to subscriptions and tap 'Manage'. On the Chappy Premium screen turn off Auto Renew.

To cancel a Chappy Premium subscription bought via Google Play, launch the Google Play store on your phone, locate the Chappy app, and then tap 'Unsubscribe'.

If you purchased Chappy Premium via Credit Card or PayPal visit the website and close the subscription via your payment settings.

To cancel an SMS subscription, follow the instructions in your initial subscription confirmation SMS message or any subscription-renewal SMS.

If you want to turn off Auto-Top up for your credits, simply open your settings, go to your 'Payment Settings' section and turn the Auto-Top up off. If you are using an iPhone please log in via the Chappy website and go to the 'Payment settings' section to turn the Auto-Top up off.

If you are still have some confusion about the payments, please get in touch with our Customer Support team using our Feedback form.

I'm having trouble buying Chappy credits. What do I do?

Please contact our Customer Care Team if you have any trouble buying credits. They'll be happy to help.

Why were email invites sent to my contacts?

We have a feature that enables you to find your friends on Chappy by importing existing contacts from your email account. Invitations to your friends are only sent if you share your address book on Chappy and send invitations to friends who have not joined us yet.

Don't worry! When importing your contacts, you can always choose to uncheck any contacts who you do not want to invite or add to your friends on Chappy.

Why do I need to confirm some of my information when I try to log in?

The security of our users is very important to us and therefore we might ask you to confirm some of your details. No need to worry as we will only ask you to confirm details that you added in the past.

  • If we call you then you'll be prompted to enter a number into a field on your screen; simply enter the last four digits of the number we're calling you from.
  • If we ask you to confirm your email address or phone number please do so. You don't need to have access to your email address or phone number as you only need to enter it.
  • If we're asking for your password but you do not remember it, just click on the 'Forgot Password' button and follow the instructions sent to your email.

If you have problems with confirming your details please contact our Customer Care Team and we will look into it for you.

How can I contact customer support?

If you have a question you can't find the answer to, feel free to get in touch with us via social on Facebook or Twitter, or you can drop us an email using our Feedback form!

Why am I seeing people from an area outside of my own?

Bumble shows you people in or very close to your location. Once you’ve swiped through all of the people in your area, Bumble will automatically find other users in places nearby. We don't want you to run out of people to swipe on! (Besides, who knows who you might find just a little farther away?)

Why am I getting the message 'Invalid phone number' when trying to verify my phone?

First please make sure that you are entering the correct phone number and country code. If you are still unable to verify your phone number, please contact our Customer Care Team and we will look into it for you.

How can I block a user?

We understand that there are some people you don't want to receive messages from. Therefore, you can easily block someone at anytime!

  1. Visit the user's profile
  2. Scroll to the bottom of their profile
  3. Tap on 'Block or Report' and then 'Block'
You can also find the same button at the top of a conversation. Please note that that person will still be able to see your profile page and see if you are online (unless you using Invisible mode), but you won't receive his or her messages anymore.

How can I report someone?

We strive to maintain the Hive as a safe and enjoyable place to make authentic, kind connections. If you ever encounter a user who you feel has violated our Community Guidelines, please let us know so that we can take action.

There are two different ways to report someone on Bumble - via their profile, and via a conversation.

To report someone from their profile, please follow these steps:

  1. Scroll to the bottom of their profile and tap the "Block and Report" button.
  2. Choose one of the report reasons and include any additional comments for our moderation team. You can share as much or as little information as you feel comfortable with, but the more information we have, the easier it is for us to support you and take action.
  3. Tap "Submit report".

To report a user from the Conversations menu, please follow these steps:

  1. From your conversation, tap on the 3 dots in the top right-hand corner.
  2. From here, tap “Block & Report”.
  3. Be sure to specify the reason for the report and submit. You can share as much or as little information as you feel comfortable with, but the more information we have, the easier it is for us to support you and take action.

Once we receive the report, our moderation team will review it as soon as possible. Due to privacy guidelines, we can’t always reveal the results of a report, but please know that we take every report seriously and handle each case with care.

Check out our Community Guidelines, Terms of Service, and Safety Tips for additional information. The safety of our community is our top priority, and we want all users to feel comfortable and empowered in the Hive. Feel free to reach out to our team if you have additional questions; we’re here for you!

Why am I not receiving any matches?

The more information you put into your profile, the more chances you have to find a match! You can add up to six photos to your profile and having more photos will increase your chances of receiving right-swipes. We'll let you in on a little secret: Higher quality photos always perform better.

My popularity is low - how can I boost it?

There are many ways to boost your popularity and get seen by more people. You can buy Chappy credits to use our 'Spotlight' service or get your very own Chappy Premium.

How can I reactivate my deleted profile?

First thing’s first: welcome back!

If you deleted your profile less than 30 days ago, you should have a confirmation email from us that includes a reactivation link. Click that and you’ll be able to jump right back in.

If it’s been longer, you’ll need to create a new profile – a good excuse to switch things up and try a different approach, maybe?

How can I report a fake profile?

We have a zero tolerance policy for fake profiles on Bumble and a team that works 24/7 to keep them out of the Hive. If you ever see something suspicious, please don’t hesitate to report it to us!

If you come across a profile that you believe is fake, follow these steps to report it:

  1. On the user's profile, scroll to the bottom and select the "Block and Report" option
  2. Choose "Stolen photo" as your report reason and include any additional comments for our moderation team
  3. Tap "Submit report"

If you have already matched and started a conversation with a user that you'd like to report, the process will be a little bit different. Please follow these steps:

  1. From your conversation, tap on the 3 dots in the top right hand corner
  2. Select the option to "Block and Report"
  3. Choose "Stolen photo" as your report reason and include any additional comments for our moderation team
  4. Tap "Submit report"

Additionally, you can contact our Support Team directly and include the following information:

  • The exact name, age, bio, and photos that appear on the profile that you are reporting (if you have them, screenshots are very helpful!)
  • The location (city, state, country) where the profile was seen

Other information that could help includes the user's move makers and/or additional photos that are used on the profile. The more details you can provide, the quicker we’ll be able to locate and remove this profile from the Hive.

Does Bumble have a swipe limit?

Seeing a screen that you’ve hit the end of the line? Don’t worry; this is not a technical issue.

In order to help foster more genuine, quality connections for our users and encourage more intentional swiping we incorporated a daily swipe limit. We know the more thoughtful our users are about their swipes, the more likely they are to strike up conversations that lead to meaningful connections.

Once you hit your daily swipe limit, you will have to wait 24 hours for your swipes to reset (e.g. if you hit the limit at 8 pm your swipes will refresh at 8 pm the next day). If you would like to continue swiping, you can get unlimited votes with a Boost subscription.

If your swipes don’t reset after 24 hours, reach out to our Support Team so we can get you back up and buzzin’. Here is how to get in contact with our team:

  1. Directly within the app through the "Contact & FAQ" button.
  2. Email our Support Team here.
  3. Through our Facebook Support page, or Twitter Support page.

How can I amend my stored payment method?

Open your settings by clicking on the cog icon in the top right corner of your profile page, scroll down to the Payment Settings section and click on it to edit. You'll then be able to unlink your payment method.

Why can't I see someone's location on their profile?

If a user’s location isn’t showing on their profile –– don’t worry. A location won’t appear if that user has set their profile on Snooze mode (for folks you’ve already matched with), if they are not near one of our geographical pinpoints, or if they haven’t opened the app for several days.

Why am I being charged again?

If you are being charged again and you are not sure why please check if you currently have a Chappy Premium subscription or if you have the Auto-Top up feature turned on for credits:

To cancel your Chappy Premium subscription made via iTunes, go to the settings of your iPhone or iPad, choose 'iTunes and App Store', then tap your Apple ID and 'View Apple ID'. Enter your password, scroll down to subscriptions and tap 'Manage'. On the Chappy Premium screen turn off Auto Renew.

Why did I run out of people to swipe on?

If you're running out of users to swipe on you may have too many filters selected in your Settings. Too many filters will limit the amount of users that fit into your search criteria.

If you run out of users to swipe on, try widening your search criteria (age and distance ranges) and removing a few filters to expand your Hive.

Why can’t I crop photos?

Photo uploading on Bumble is optimized so that photos fill the space they are placed within. If you upload a photo in landscape orientation, it's possible that the sides will be cropped from view. Try uploading photos in portrait orientation for best results!

How can I unblock a user?

Once you've blocked a user, it's not possible to unblock them.

What is Moves Making Impact?

With the help of Vital Voices, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating spaces for women to be heard, we created Moves Making Impact. This initiative utilizes empowered first moves on Bumble to uplift women facilitating change globally. With each first move made on Bumble, we're making a donation to one of three women who are doing incredible work in Public Policy, Economic Development, and Human rights. You can find more information about the initiative, the women, and their causes here.

You’re able to change the cause your first moves support at any time by following these steps:

  1. Select the silhouette icon in the bottom left corner
  2. Select the cog/settings icon in the top left corner
  3. Scroll down and select 'Moves Making Impact Settings'

What is Snooze?

Snooze is a feature that allows you to pause activity, or hide your profile on Bumble, while keeping your matches. Whether you’re on vacation, swamped with work, need some time to focus on yourself, or are taking a digital detox, we understand that everyone needs a break sometimes, and we encourage you to go offline so you come back to our community a healthier, more balanced person - whenever you’re ready.

Snooze hides your profile from potential matches for either 24 hours, 72 hours, a week, or indefinitely. While you’re snoozing you have the option to set an away status that can be seen by your active matches, as these connections will remain. You can turn Snooze on or off within your settings.

*Please note, whenever you want to deactivate Snooze mode and return to Bumble, your matches will receive a notification stating that you’re back.

For more information, please visit: Bumble Snooze.

Can I use Bumble without giving location permissions?

At this time you do have to grant Bumble location permissions while the app is in use in order to be able to swipe on folks in your area. However, if you want to turn off your location you will still able to interact with your current matches and others will see your last known location displayed on your profile.

How can I block a user?

To block a user, please visit their profile, select the icon in the top right corner of their profile and select 'Block or report'. Please note that blocking a user will stop their messages from reaching you, but the user will still be able to view your profile.

Does Bumble Web include all the features of the app?

Bumble Web has many of the same features you will find on our mobile app.

On Bumble Web you can:

Will my connections expire while Snoozed?

While Snoozed, matches that do not have an active conversation will expire.

Matches that you’ve been messaging with will not expire. These connections will receive your designated away status until you come back!

How long do expired matches stay in my queue?

There isn’t a time limit on your expired matches. Your match queue holds five expired matches at one time. If you exceed five, the oldest expired match will be bumped to make room for the newer expired match.

Bummed that you missed out on a match? It’s not goodbye forever, learn about our Rematch feature here.

Why am I being asked to add a social network account when I try to log in?

No need to worry! If you need to add a social network account to your profile again we just want to ensure that you're the real owner of the profile. You only need to re-verify with a method you've already linked to your profile in the past. If you experience issues with this just contact our Customer Care Team and we will help you.

Who will be able to see my profile when Snoozed?

While Snoozed, your profile will only be viewable to your current connections.

How can I view my matches?

Ready to make the first move or want to look through your matches? Follow these steps to view all of the users you have connected with:

  1. Tap the chat bubble on the lower right corner of your screen
  2. At the top of this screen, you will see your Match Queue

Your Match Queue will show you all of the users you have matched with as well as your expired connections.

How can I access my profile if I cannot see the captcha symbols?

If you need to enter captcha symbols but you are not able to see them, it may be due to some plugins or antivirus software installed on your computer. Try turning them off or deinstall them and you will see the symbols.

Will I still be able to chat to my matches with Snooze on?

While Snooze is on, all of your activity on Bumble will be paused. This means that you cannot chat with your current matches. If you choose to continue your conversations, Snooze will be turned off and your profile will revert to an active status.

Will my matches be notified when I turn Snooze off?

Yes! We created Snooze to provide a way for users to take a break while also fostering online accountability. We notify your matches when you’re back online in order to foster this accountability and ensure that everyone is treated with kindness and respect.

Will I receive a notification when my profile in ‘un-snoozed’?

Yes! We will send you a notification when your designated Snooze period expires and welcome you back to the Hive!

Will I still be able to swipe when my profile is on Snooze?

When your profile is Snoozed, all of your activity on Bumble will be paused. This means that you will not be able to swipe or match with users until you turn off the feature, or when your designated Snooze period ends.

How do I delete my profile?

Made a meaningful connection and no longer on the dating scene?

Finding a great romantic connection doesn’t mean having to step back from your social and business growth! You can delete just your Date profile, while sticking around on Bizz and BFF. Here’s how!

Calling it quits for real?
