Child Sexual Exploitation & Abuse

We don’t allow content that sexualizes or endangers children, real or fictional (e.g. anime, digital images, media, text, illustrations). This includes any visual depictions, sharing third party links, or discussions of sexually explicit conduct involving a child. It’s prohibited to upload, store, produce, share, or entice anyone to share child sexual abuse material (CSAM), even if the intent is to express outrage or raise awareness about this issue.

We understand that members might want to talk about and share images of their children with their connections. Any discussions about children must remain appropriate, relevant, and lawful. In addition, if you decide to include photos of children in your profile, they must be completely clothed and they cannot appear alone in the image. This includes any photos from your childhood.

We don’t allow profile photos of babies’, toddlers’ or children’s genitalia or buttocks even when they’re covered or partially covered by emojis.

Any violation of this policy will result in a member being removed from Bumble and reported to the authorities. In compliance with U.S. law, if we become aware of apparent child sexual exploitation, child grooming, or child abuse, we will report it to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). NCMEC may make the report available to relevant local and global law enforcement authorities.
