What Is Bumble Backtrack?

Sometimes you have one of those moods where you keep swiping left on the profiles. And then you accidentally swipe left on that one person you didn’t mean to. You’re just screaming on the inside because they could have been your soulmate. You never know. The odds of finding them are slim, but it’s not impossible.

Bumble Backtrack is a feature of Bumble Boost and Bumble Premium. This system allows you to backtrack after swiping at least once in each direction. So, for example, if you accidentally swipe left on someone, you can reverse it and correct your mistake.

You can only Backtrack when you swipe left, so if you swipe right by accident, you cannot undo it. Nevertheless, this is a very useful function as you can do it as much as you want.

How To Rematch With Someone On Bumble Using Backtrack?

Rematching is different from Backtracking someone on Bumble. Backtracking is when you accidentally swipe left on someone and wish to reverse that. As stated above, you can only reverse your decision when you swipe left on someone on Bumble.

Backtracking doesn’t work when you accidentally swipe right on someone. So if you accidentally swipe right on someone and you match, you can just unmatch. To Backtrack, go to the top left of your screen and click the left-facing curved arrow after swiping left. But to do this, you will have to buy Bumble Boost or Bumble Premium.

You might not get matched even after you swipe right, so you should have a complete profile to increase your chances. Make sure you have plenty of prompts and include a conversation opener in your profile to make it easier for ladies to break the conversation.

Will You Ever See Your Potential Match Again?

Has your match expired? Even after breaking the ice and giving a killer first liner, they didn’t reply? It’s sad, but if you are sure they are your soulmate, you can still keep your hopes up. As studies show, 30% of US adults use a dating app. If you use more than one dating app, you can find them elsewhere.

Bumble will show expired matches on your dating hive, so if you swipe through enough profiles, you will likely see them again. If you remember their names, you could search them on other social media platforms. But if they didn’t even bother to give you a reply, maybe you are better off without them.

Bumble dating app provides a unique experience. In a sense, you can say that the roles are reversed. Where women find out how hard it is to start a conversation and men find out how boring some of these opening texts are. Even if men were doing these same things, like sending uninteresting texts, they could see how women feel about these texts. And women find out how rejection feels.

Is The Person Notified If You Rematch On Bumble?

If you are wondering if the person you have rematched on Bumble gets a notification, the answer is YES. So imagine you go out of your way to rematch, and they don’t even know about it. Seems like a waste of time, right.

Thus not only do they get a notification when you initiate a rematch, but they will also get a notification when the Bumbles time limit is near. So if they haven’t started a conversation even after your effort, you should also back out.

Dating apps can make you question yourself when you don’t get any responses. But don’t question yourself if it is meant to be; it will happen. And if fate is on your side, you might just find your soulmate.

Can You Backtrack on Likes?

Suppose you accidentally swipe right on a Bumble profile. As stated above, you will not be able to reverse your likes on Bumble. Most of the time, you won’t even be sure if you get a match or how long it will take to get a match on Bumble. So you won’t have to worry about the result of your likes.

To sum it up, you cannot backtrack on likes. But if you regret swiping right on someone, the most you can do is Unmatch after you get matched. So don’t worry about it, as Bumble users don’t know who liked their profile unless they are a Premium member.

Does the Guy Know You Swiped Right on Him?

Bumble users will not know if you swipe right on their profile. Instead, Bumble users will get an estimate on how many likes they are getting on their profile but are unable to their profile. As Bumble will only show blurred images of the profiles, you cannot see any further information. To see who has swiped right on you, you need to unlock Bumble Premium.

How Does the Messaging Process Work for Same-Sex Matches?

Can I Find Someone On Bumble By Name?

It is impossible to find someone on Bumble using their name as there is no search function on the app. But you can use other methods to find someone on Bumble. For example, you can try and customize Bumble filters to find that someone specifically. The more information you know about them, the better.


Dating is hard, and online dating is another can of worms. Online dating has made it easy for people with similar interests to connect and bond over. But as much as it comes with benefits, you must be aware of catfishers, scammers, and bad people in general whom you would have never encountered in real life.

Finding “the one” has a price, and rematching on Bumble might not always get you the desired results. So keep looking; the best advice you can take from here is to keep moving. You’re a great catch, and if they can’t appreciate it, you’ll find someone who will, and you’ll wonder why you thought dating was hard, to begin with.
