These Guidelines and our Terms and Conditions are designed to ensure every user has a safe and enjoyable experience on Bumble. Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in losing access to our platform.
Upload only your own photos
We take copyrights very seriously. If you don’t own the rights to a photo or video, please don’t post it. Same goes for dogs. If the dog isn’t yours-- don’t post it…(only joking!)
Respect all users
We’re a very diverse community. This means you should respect other people’s beliefs, interests and property while on Bumble. Bumble takes a strong stance against hate speech, rude or abusive behavior, bullying, and misogyny. You should behave the same way on Bumble as you would in real life. Additionally we encourage all of our users to report anyone who does not follow these behavioral guidelines. As a community rooted in kindness and respect, we expect all of our users to respect each other, themselves, and the Bumble staff.
Send original messages to other users
We strongly advise against copying and pasting the same message to every connection. We encourage our users to read profiles, learn about other people’s interests, and send an appropriate, relevant message to each match. We promise this will increase your chances of engaging in interesting conversations.
Don’t pretend you’re someone you’re not
As previously stated, do not post photos that are not of you. We also recommend using our photo verification tool to let other users know that your profile is legit.

Don’t do anything illegal on our site
Illegal activity will not be tolerated on Bumble. This may result in being banned or restricted from the site, and/or being reported to the authorities.
Bumble isn’t for selling things. If you try to use it as a marketplace, you’ll be banned.
No kids on their own, they must be in the photo with an adult & fully clothed
Bumble is for 18+ years, therefore we don’t allow kids to be alone in photos as representatives of their parents on Bumble. In addition, all children must be completely clothed. This is safer for both children and their parents.
We use a combination of automated systems and a team of moderators to monitor and review accounts and messages for content that indicates breaches of these Guidelines and our Terms and Conditions. If you don’t follow these guidelines, you’ll receive a warning (unless our team decides to block or restrict access without warning at our discretion). If you ignore this warning, you risk losing your account. These guidelines are designed to make Bumble a friendly and safe place for all our users.
