Yes and no. There are no automatic punishments or “shadow bans” for deleting and recreating your Bumble profile. However, we have found that users who create multiple accounts in a short time (e.g. making five profiles in the span of two months) naturally tend to have fewer matches.
If you’re not shadow banning me, why am I getting fewer matches?
Seeing the same profile more than once can cause users to think they’re experiencing a technical issue or to suspect that your profile may be spam--no one wants to match with a bot. This leads to more left swipes and a negative experience for everyone. It's best that all activity is concentrated on one account to ensure you have the best experience possible.
We totally understand needing to take breaks, so if you’d like to temporarily remove your profile from circulation we recommend using the Snooze feature which allows you to step away without deleting your profile.
If you’re having a hard time making connections with your existing profile, be sure you’re using all the fantastic features available to you in the Hive such as adding Badges and Profile Prompts, and check out our blog The Buzz for some pro tips.
Please note: If you recreate your profile multiple times, you can run the risk of getting warned or blocked from Bumble permanently.
