Why has my photo been moderated?

We work hard to ensure that Bumble is a safe and empowering platform for all of our users. Our photo moderation rules are in place to protect our community.

If your photo has been moderated, it will most likely be for one of the following reasons:

  • Your photo contains erotic content
  • You're wearing swimwear or underwear. Swimwear is OK in a pool or beach setting, but no bathroom mirror selfies or similar are allowed
  • Your photo is of someone under 18 by themselves
  • Your face is not clearly visible for some reason. This can include the image file being too small, your face being obscured, or too many filters being used
  • Your photo contains a watermark (this is only OK in Bizz mode)
  • Your photo has a caption or text laid over it
  • You have uploaded a photo of someone who is not you
  • Your photo contains firearms (more on this here)
