Why am I seeing people from an area outside of my own?

Bumble shows you people in or very close to your location. Once you’ve swiped through all of the people in your area, Bumble will automatically find other users in places nearby. We don't want you to run out of people to swipe on! (Besides, who knows who you might find just a little farther away?)

If this is a deal-breaker for you, follow these steps:

1. Tap on your "search preferences" icon in the top right corner of the encounters screen 

2. Under "Distance" make sure "See people slightly further away if I run out" is toggled off so that it is not yellow. We will no longer show you people outside of the set distance preferences.
