Home Social Media Bumble How To Reset Your Bumble Account [January 2021]
Like Tinder, Bumble has become an incredibly popular dating app for people looking to make connections with others in their area. However, if you’re having trouble finding matches or simply want a fresh start, you might be interested in resetting your account.
While it might not be immediately clear how to do this, resetting your Bumble account is pretty straightforward. By following a few simple steps you can wipe the slate clean and start over.
With that being said, here’s how you can reset your Bumble account.
Before resetting your account and losing all of your existing matches, it might be better to consider putting your account into Snooze mode. This makes your profile invisible so that you can take a break from the app and return whenever you’re ready.
Follow these steps to activate this feature:
You can choose to snooze your account for a preset amount of time, or if you’re not sure when you’ll return, you can choose ‘Indefinitely’ and reactivate your account whenever you feel comfortable.
The upside to resetting your Bumble account is it wipes the slate clean. You can use new images, a new bio, or even a new Facebook account to connect with new matches in your area. To reset your Bumble account, you need to delete it and then create a new one.
Before you get started, note that Bumble does not like it if you reset your account too frequently. It will display a brief message prior to deleting your account that tells you as much. According to Bumble, those who frequently do a hard reset or who reinstall the app immediately after uninstalling, will not have their profile shown to others as frequently.
With that in mind, here’s how to reset your account.
First, you’ll need to disconnect your Facebook account from your Bumble account.
To do this on a mobile device, follow these steps:
To do this from a desktop, follow these steps:
Once your Facebook account has been disconnected, you may or may not need to manually delete your account on Bumble. Go into Bumble on your phone or desktop and see if the account still exists. If it does, you’ll need to delete it by hand.
Follow these steps to do so:
This will delete your Bumble account completely. To make sure there is no cached data from Bumble, uninstall the app on your phone. Now your Bumble account is properly and completely deleted.
To reset your account, you’ll need to start over on Bumble. According to those who have reset their accounts multiple times, it is best to wait 24 hours to make absolutely sure that Bumble isn’t monitoring your IP address.
After 24 hours have passed, redownload Bumble from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store and install it. If you want to improve your chances with a better set of images or bio, or you’ve made changes to your Facebook information such as city or career, make those changes in Facebook first. If you just want a second round with the same information, go ahead and set up Bumble without making any changes on Facebook.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind to improve your experience on Bumble.
Bumble has multiple filter options to make it easier to find good matches. These filters include:
These filters will help narrow down your options and match with people that have similar interests and lifestyles.
Another recent Bumble feature is the addition of Profile Prompts — discussion starters that Bumble has added to everyone’s profile. You can choose up to three profile prompts from a longer list, with subjects like, “I feel most empowered when…” and “We’ll get along if…” which you fill in to complete the sentence.
This information shows up on your profile and gives your potential matches a quick insight into your personality and sense of humor. Choose prompts for which you have good answers and make those answers shine.
Bumble lets you link to your Spotify account, and doing so is a great way to find matches with similar taste in music. A shared love of a band or genre isn’t quite an automatic match, but for a lot of people, it’s darn close to one.
Bumble also lets you link your Instagram account to your Bumble account. This lets potential matches find you on social media and learn more about whether or not you might be a good match.
Account verification is quick, easy, and free. With the amount of spam, catfishing, phishing, and outright scamming that occurs on apps like Bumble, many users won’t swipe right on accounts that aren’t verified.
All you have to do is take a couple of selfies and send them to Bumble for approval. After doing so, your profile will indicate that you are a verified user.
Resetting your Bumble account is a great way to get a fresh start and find new, higher-quality matches. By unlinking your Facebook account and creating a new Bumble profile, you can increase your chances of finding your ideal match!
