How Does Bumble Work? 2022 Guide For Guys And Girls (With Photos)

In comparison to other dating apps like Tinder, Bumble is a location-based dating and social app with several extremely unique features. The fact that most of the power is given to the females is a trait that has captivated the majority of its customers. Bumble allows you to swipe or like someone else, and if they do the same, a dialogue might begin.

Bumble is a popular dating app since it is completely free to download and use. You can go through the profiles of other users for free, make matches, and send messages. Bumble Boost and Bumble Premium subscriptions are available if you want to take your Bumble experience to the next level. It’s also possible to buy more SuperSwipes and Spotlights.

In this article, you will get to know about the working of Bumble for both girls and guys and everyone.

How to download Bumble?

Bumble is available for iPhone in the App Store and Android on Google Play. There are several paid choices that we shall discuss shortly. 

Before subscribing for any extras, I recommend getting a feel for the free version. You’ll be asked to connect either your Facebook profile or your phone number once you’ve downloaded the app.

How does Bumble works?

A “connection” (match) is made when two users “like” each other’s account by swiping right. On Bumble, women (only) must message their matches first in the case of heterosexual people. Bumble is a little different if you’re not straight. If you’re a lady looking for another woman, you can message each other first (though the 24 hour limit for both people still applies). 

Males hunting for other men are in the same boat. You can message a man first but not a woman if you’re a man looking for both men and women. Bumble will ask you whether you’d like to be shown to women or males. This isn’t the most inclusive, and it’s one of the app’s drawbacks (though, in fairness, Tinder also only allows search for men and women).

Bumble profile guide

Before you can begin swiping on Tinder, you’ll need to create a profile. Click the person symbol in the top left corner of your swiping screen to change your profile. Then choose ‘Edit Profile.’ Here you can add a few more details to your profile which are:

  1. Pictures: There are a total of 6 images that you can upload. You can choose from your phone’s library, shoot your own photo, or import them from Facebook.
  1. About me/Bio: Make sure you fill up the blanks! Write about yourself a bit, your interests etc. If you’re stuck for ideas, check out my other blog on the same.
  1. Work and education: Don’t forget to include where you went to school and what you did for a living. When individuals come across your profile, they will see this.
  1. Basic information: it consists of a series of easy questions to which you must choose the best answer that best defines you. It assists you and potential matches in finding like-minded people when you initially join a dating site.
  1. Connect instagram/ spotify: If you don’t think your six photographs accurately portray who you are as a person and you have some amazing photos on Instagram that do, absolutely connect them to Bumble. Connecting spotify to Bumble is another technique to assist you and possible matches in finding someone who shares your interests. Great minds think alike, so promoting some of your favourite musicians will surely help you meet someone with whom you’ll get along.
  1. Other profiles on Bumble: You can browse through profiles on the main swiping screen. You can scroll up and down to see images and information about your possible mates. If your possible match has Instagram connected, 9 Instagram photographs will be displayed in a grid-like format underneath another picture on their profile.

How Bumble swipe work?

Bumble is a dating app that aims to get rid of unwanted and annoying introductory texts. Men wait till the lady they’ve matched with has sent the first message before messaging her. In the free version of dating apps, there is a swipe restriction. 

Before the upgrade to premium notification occurs, you can only swipe right or like a profile a specific number of times. Bumble gives users 25 free likes before locking them out of the app for 24 hours.

You’ll then be led to a site where you can pay for a premium subscription to continue swiping. When the number of swipes is low, users are more likely to swipe only on persons with whom they wish to develop a meaningful connection.

How does Bumble Likes work?

There’s no way to know who likes you on Bumble unless you pay for a premium. If you swipe right on someone who has liked you, the resulting connection will inform you that they have liked you already! This method does not tell the exact number of likes you’ll get; you’ll have to pay.

How does Bumble BFF work?

Bumble isn’t just for dating anymore, thanks to the addition of Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz.

These are in-app capabilities for finding and networking with friends.

When it comes to BFF, the only difference is that you’re seeking a buddy instead of a partner! Swiping, matching, and Bumble’s algorithm will all work the same way, only you’ll be scrolling through folks who have also decided to try to make friends.

Entering the Bumble settings and clicking ‘choose mode’ activates Bumble BFF. After you’ve selected ‘BFF,’ you can turn off (or leave on) ‘date’ if you don’t want your profile to be seen by others searching for a date.

How does Bumble Boost work?

Among dozens of other self-identifications, there is a more equitable male-to-female ratio among its users. Bumble Boost is getting a makeover to incorporate even more features, as well as a premium tier called Bumble Premium. 

The second paid subscription tier is Bumble Boost. Although it is less expensive than Bumble Premium, it lacks a few crucial features. 

You can instantly rematch expired matches, extend an unlimited number of matches for another 24 hours, and undo your most recent swipe. You’ll also get unlimited swiping, 5 SuperSwipes each week, and a highlight on your profile.

How does Bumble Premium work?

You can sign up for Bumble Premium by clicking on the pixelated square in your match queue, or you can view both options by clicking on the pixelated square in your match queue. Select your desired subscription by clicking the silhouette in the bottom left-hand corner. 

SuperSwipe and Spotlight credits are not included if you subscribe to our daily Bumble Boost/ Premium memberships. 

How does Bumble security work?

There may be moments when you come across a very unpleasant user. By viewing their profile, you can ban or report an account. The user will no longer be able to see your profile.

If you’ve had a chat with someone, you can block and report them by going to the bottom of their profile page and hitting the “Block & Report” option, or by clicking the “Block & Report” option from within the conversation.

Is it possible to search for an account without having to log in on Bumble?

It’s possible that you’ll need to check if somebody has a Bumble account at some point. To look up another user (which isn’t easy), you’ll need a Bumble account. Making a Bumble profile, narrowing your search, and finding the individual you’re looking for are your best bets.

The bottom line

Bumble is available on the App Store for iPhone and Google Play for Android. Bumble Likes and Bumble BFF are in-app features that help you find and connect with friends. 

Users can swipe right or like a profile a specific number of times. If they do a lot of swipes at once then Bumble will restrict you. You will have to pay if you want to know the exact quantity of like.
