Ready to ditch the dating apps? Let’s get you started!
Dating apps are the new normal in the world of romance. Especially for the younger demographics, dating apps have become the most popular method of meeting partners (and friends).
And Bumble is one of the most popular dating apps out there. But what happens when you’re ready to take yourself off the market?
Unfortunately, getting rid of dating apps isn’t quite as easy as it seems. Thankfully, you can follow this guide to learn how to disappear from Bumble!
Ready to Delete Your Bumble Account?
Have you already found the love of your life? Perhaps dating apps consume too much of your time and energy? Or maybe you’re tired of all your personal info being shared with countless strangers across the globe?
Regardless of your reasoning, you’ve finally decided to get rid of Bumble for good. Should be as simple as just uninstalling the app right? Wrong.
Unfortunately, just like it’s more popular counterpart, Tinder, Bumble also requires you to permanently delete your account in order to remove yourself from the app entirely.
If you fail to do this, your profile will still be floating around in the app’s card stack. Meaning, your profile, and in turn, your personal info, will still be visible to people using the app.
So, if you’re ready to scrub your info from Bumble permanently, follow these steps to delete your Bumble account!
How to Delete Bumble
Like its competitors, Bumble doesn’t allow you to simply uninstall the app if you want your profile removed from their database. Instead, you’ll have to delete your account entirely if you want your profile card to no longer be visible. Here’s how you do it:
Step 1: After opening Bumble, select your profile in the upper left of the app interface.
Step 2: Select the gear in the top left corner of your profile page, this will take you to your settings.
Step 3: Move down to the bottom of your settings page until you reach “Delete Account”.
Step 4: You’ll then be presented with a text box where you’ll need to type “delete” in order to confirm the deletion of your account.
Congrats! You’ve successfully deleted your Bumble account. Now you don’t need to fret about strangers seeing your personal info on the app.
Note: Deleting your profile does not cancel your subscription. If you subscribed to a paid Bumble Boost subscription you will need to take the necessary steps to cancel this to ensure you are not charged an auto-renewal subscription fee.
But what about on the rest of your apps and around the web? Below we’ll show you how you can protect your privacy not only on Bumble, but everywhere on the web.
Data Privacy Doesn’t End There
