How to Fix a Bumble Shadowban

Bumble is a dating app that allows you to connect with other people, as with any dating platform, bumble takes good care of their activity within the platform as it is crucial to maintain a good experience for all users. Even though Bumble has not been open to talking about this issue, it is certain to see that based on the feedback of some users, the shadow ban is implemented by the app.

What exactly is the Bumble Shadowban?

The shadowban in Bumble is very similar to the one used on Tinder, what it does is that it minimizes the exposure of a certain user who is considered not desirable. When we talk about this, it’s based on bad practices like recreating a bumble profile several times within a short period. This is often without the knowledge of the user as the whole idea it’s that the user keeps using the app but it gets fewer new matches if at all.

Does this affect new bumble users?

Unless you have used Bumble in the past, you are not likely to be shadowbanned on bumble. The ban is mainly for that accounts that are somehow linked to previous profiles. This could be detected by using the same photos and also by using the same WiFi Network.

Does it work like the tinder shadowban?

How to tell if your bumble account is shadowbanned?

Fewer matches

Accounts that are shadowbanned tend to have fewer matches, getting fewer matches it’s a good indicator that something it’s going on in the account and that you should be aware of a possible ban by bumble. This is only an indicator and it is often the reason as you might only be in an area with inactive users.

Find yourself from a new account

The best way to check if your account has a shadowban it’s by trying to search yourself on the platform itself. To do this, you might need to have a friend who has not used the app before and that is not connected to your same network. We know this is often very hard to do but it is the only way that one can tell if the block has been implemented on the account.¬†

Creating multiple bumble accounts in a short period
