Chappy FAQs

Why is Chappy closing down?

It’s been an incredible three years and we couldn’t be more grateful for the hundreds of thousands of you that have joined us on our mission to create a space for gay connection. While it’s the end of the road for Chappy, all is not lost!

We’re joining Bumble because we have the opportunity to take what we’ve built together here to the next level by creating a space for healthy and safe connections across the LGBTQ+ spectrum. Bumble is committed to fighting all kinds of inequality, and we’re excited to land our spaceship safely in the Bumble Hive.

Why should I join Bumble?

All of Chappy’s stars (that’s you!) are welcome and you can rest assured that there’s already a huge community of gay men in Bumble looking for healthy, safe and respectful connections in love, work and life.

As a token of our gratitude, we wanted to give you a gift for helping us on our mission. You’ll get a week free of Bumble’s premium subscription when you register so you can hit the ground running.

When will Chappy be fully closed down?

Chappy will be fully closed down on February 28th. On February 24th, you won’t see anyone when you go to swipe.

What happens to my connections?

Your connections won’t be carried over to Bumble and will disappear on February 28th so make sure you’ve exchanged numbers with those lovely men - well, the ones you want to stay in touch with, that is.

What happens to my information?

When Chappy has closed down, your profile and information will not be shown to any other users in-app and will no longer be accessible by the public.
