How Does Bumble Work


What’s a Bumble App?

Bumble is made for all kinds of connections, from finding your other half to connecting with people for a career change! Bumble app uses your mobile location and shows users who are located near you. Most importantly, Bumble makes it safer and more inclusives such as no pictures in bikinis, no kids on their own, no guns and to respect one another - Bumble is also LGBTQ+ friendly!

Who makes the first move on Bumble?

On Bumble, ladies get the upper-hand to make the first move and this is to encourage equality from the start - Yay for Girl Power!

The rule of the game is similar to Tinder, you swipe right to show interest and left to pass. When both users swipe right, it’s a match and the lady must send a message to start a conversation. You will be given a 24-hour window where both parties must respond otherwise Bumble would break the match when it expires!

How to use Bumble?

Once you have created your Bumble account, you should start beautifying your profile before swiping - Let's guide you step by step!
