Recreate Your Bumble Account
After installing Bumble again, make sure that this time it’s different. Don’t repeat your old mistakes. Make sure to check your profile and verify it.
Upload a classic headshot while a full body shot is required it shouldn’t be your primary picture. Choose a picture you’ve taken outside in nice lighting and ditch the sunglasses. Hiding your eyes makes you seem shady.
With these tips in mind make your profile the best it’s been now go forward and find your perfect significant other.
Why It Is Risky To Reset Bumble?
While Bumble states that there are no automatic punishments and “shadowbans” for deleting and recreating your account. Creating many accounts during the span of a few months will naturally lead to fewer matches.
This is mainly because users are suspecting your profile to be a bot account. Since they keep noticing your account frequently they think that they are experiencing a technical issue. Plus no one likes to see the same account that they have swiped left multiple times.
This leads to more left swipes thus making your profile less desirable.

If you simply wish to take a break from Bumble or want your account to be not viewed by other viewers. You can snooze your account. Snooze mode allows you to hide your profile without losing any of your conversations and matches.

Step 4: Tap Snooze
Choose how long you want to Snooze your account.
How You Can Get Banned From Bumble?
Now that you have restored your Bumble account, you wouldn’t want it to get banned. Although not getting banned is an easy task if you’re a decent human being. But there might still be a few guidelines you need to look out for. As we say better safe than sorry as we say.
Promoting Your Social Media
While it is encouraged to link your Spotify and Instagram to show more about you. Only having social media on your bio can lead to you getting banned. Also, don’t spam your matches with messages like “I’m only active in Insta” or “Dm me on Insta”. This will lead to you getting reported.
Keep your dreams of internet fame out of any dating site. If you wish to find your significant other or just minimum respect.
Doing Illegal Activities
If you’re looking for somewhere to do illegal activities why would you do it at a dating site? Selling weed or other “stuff” will quickly ban you from Bumble.
Not being rude to others is a basic common sense that even five-year-olds know. Body shaming, racism, bullying, and sexual harassment are all off the table. Giving respect is the least you can do while you’re searching for love.
Sending Same Texts
After getting a match, don’t just start with “Hi 💗 ”. Breaking the ice can be hard ladies, as we are not used to starting the conversations. But sending the same text to every match can result in Bumble reading it as spam thus affecting your match rate.
No one likes to small talk. So try to be original and look into their bio. What are their hobbies? What kind of music are they listening to? Look into their prompts anything can be an icebreaker so ditch the boring messages and start the conversation with confidence.
Using Bumble for Transactions
Trying to earn money in Bumble? While Bumble does have Bumble Bizz where you can find business mentors. Earning money is a whole another topic.
Links to Esewa, Khalti, Paypal, or any other money transfer service will get you banned. Don’t try to recruit anyone to an “amazing business opportunity” we have Facebook for that. Links to OnlyFans, Patreon, or any platform where a transaction is required is also a NO.
In short, don’t try to sell or earn any money. And at the end of the day, no one is going to buy anything in a dating app.
If you are trying to get featured in “Catfish: The TV Show” you might just be going in the right direction. Your fifteen minutes of fame might be worth it to you, but do you want to live known as the catfish or the liar?. Identity theft is a big deal and you might be getting more than just banned from Bumble.
For example; You are successful in catfishing and you have been talking to an amazing person and you genuinely like them. But after that, where will your relationship go if you want a deeper connection you will never get it from being someone you are not. Be yourself and let people like the real you.
You might have worked hard in the gym for your gains but don’t be too quick to show it off. Posting a shirtless image can be tempting but it is against the Bumble guideline and can reduce your chances of getting noticed. But posting a bikini and swimwear on a beach is fine.
If you want to post a picture with your kid make sure you’re with them together. Guns are not allowed unless you’re in the military or an officer in uniform. Absolutely no nudity, pornography, or any illegal activities. And finally, don’t use someone else’s picture.
This is the basic guideline you have to follow and don’t send any inappropriate images to your match.

The primary picture should feature the upper third of your body as a study of dating photos considered it to be the most attractive.
Suggest An Icebreaker In Your Bio
Guys, you understand the struggle of having to start a conversation so why not make it easier for her. End your Bumble bio with an icebreaker idea like; My ideal date, chilled coffee with long conversations. How about you?

Bumble bios are short 300 characters each. Prompts give you more opportunity to let your matches know more about you and can also be a conversation starter. Let your personality shine through these prompts and answer how you would genuinely answer these questions.
