Why has my photo been moderated?

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

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

  • Your photo has overlaid symbols or text
  • You're topless or wearing swimwear or underwear indoors. 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 photo contains erotic content
  • You have uploaded a photo of someone who is not you
  • Your photo contains firearms (more on this here)
