Bumble Makes Reporting Hate Speech, Catfish, and More Even Easier

At Bumble, your safety is at the center of our mission. Unfortunately, not every member of our community shares our values. That’s where our robust reporting system comes in. We’ve rolled out an improved structure within the Bumble app to allow you to be specific about your reasons for reporting someone — and to ensure our team of moderators worldwide can take action as quickly as possible. Here are just a few of these options:

Fake Profiles

Do you have a gut feeling that there’s something suspicious about a profile? Do you think it’s possible you’re being catfished? Even if you just have a hunch, please go ahead and report it. You can choose whether you suspect someone’s using photos of a celebrity; whether a very empty profile sets off alarm bells; or if another person is using your photos. We’d rather be certain everyone in our community is the real deal, so don’t hesitate to report.

Discrimination or Hate Speech

We don’t accept hate speech of any kind on our platform, and we’ve added dedicated categories so it’s easier to report this behavior, whether you’ve encountered homophobia, racism, transphobia, or misogyny. One of our moderators will review your report immediately and take action if necessary.

Commercial or Social Media Promoters

Bumble is a platform for forming genuine relationships and connections; anyone seeking financial gain or followers isn’t welcome. If you come across a profile that’s, for example, selling sexual services or promoting social media accounts instead of looking to make a match, report it and we’ll take a look.

Thanks for your support as we prioritize safety and respect on Bumble.
