Why was I blocked from Bumble?

If your profile has been blocked it is because you’ve violated our Community Guidelines. The safety of our users is top priority, so we don’t tolerate misuse of our platform. To ensure each member of our community is treated with kindness and respect, everyone’s expected to adhere to our guidelines--both on and off Bumble.

As a friendly reminder, here are some examples of what will get you blocked on Bumble:

  • Commercial activity

All commercial activity is prohibited on Bumble. Commercial activity includes, but is not limited to: seeking financial support, transactional activity, recruiting or soliciting for adult entertainment, or selling/promoting any goods or services (which includes sharing links or usernames to any subscription-based services such as OnlyFans, ManyVids, Patreon, etc).

  • Rude or disrespectful behavior

This can include:

Ignoring boundaries and taking the conversation in a sexual direction without consent. For a better understanding of what is considered sexual harassment on our platform, check out this article.

Body shaming, racism, hate speech, misogyny, and bullying are all examples of unacceptable behavior on our platform.

  • Using the app to gain followers

Promoting your social media accounts is against our Community Guidelines. You can link your Instagram and Spotify accounts to your profile, but our aim is to help you make meaningful connections so only having your social media handles in your bio can lead to your profile being blocked.

  • Sending the same message to all of your matches

No one likes spammy or impersonal messages. We encourage you to take your time to come up with an original first move for each match. If you need any first move ideas, check out The Buzz.

  • Doing anything illegal

If it’s against the law, don’t do it.

  • Deleting and recreating your account repeatedly

Recreating your account multiple times can negatively impact you and the users around you. For that reason, we encourage you to keep the same account for as long as possible. If you’d like to take a break from the app, we recommend using Snooze mode.

If you believe your profile has been blocked incorrectly, you’re welcome to reach out to our Support Team.

Note: We don’t allow our users to circumnavigate permanent blocks by creating new accounts. Once your profile has been blocked, you are no longer permitted to use Bumble. Period.
