How To Restore Your Account If You Are Banned From Bumble?
Bumble, a safer alternative to Tinder, has very standard guidelines for you to follow: No hate speech, bullying, misogyny, or illegal activities. If you are banned because you violated their terms and conditions, there is no way for you to get your account back.
You can contact their support team if you’re sure that your account was banned for unfair reasons, but I recommend that you reset your account altogether, as it is very rare for a banned account to be unbanned. Not only is it faster, but also a redo of any mistakes that you might have made.

Recreate Your Bumble Account
After installing Bumble again:
- Make sure that this time it’s different.
- Refrain from repeating your old mistakes.
- 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 a few months will naturally lead to fewer matches.
This is mainly because users suspect your profile is a bot account. Since they keep noticing your account frequently, they think 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.
Putting Bumble On Snooze Mode
Suppose you wish to take a break from Bumble or want your account not viewed by other viewers. You can sleep on your account. Snooze mode allows you to hide your profile without losing conversations and matches.
You can choose how long to hide your profile: 24 hours, 72 hours, a week, or indefinitely. You can follow these steps to “Snooze” your account.
Step 1:Open Bumble App
Open the Bumble app and log in.
Step 2: Go To Bumble Profile

Step 4: Tap Snooze
Choose how long you want to Snooze your account.
How Can You 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 get you banned. Also, don’t spam your matches with messages like “I’m only active on 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
Why would you do it at a dating site if you’re looking for somewhere to do illegal activities? Selling weed or other “stuff” will quickly ban you from Bumble.
Not being rude to others is a basic common sense 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 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 confidently start the conversation.
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 other 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 will buy anything in a dating app.
If you are trying to get featured in “Catfish: The TV Show,” you might be going in the right direction. Your fifteen minutes of fame might be worth it, 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, have been talking to an amazing person, and 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 take your time to show it off. Posting a shirtless image can be tempting, but it is against the Bumble guidelines and can reduce your chances of getting noticed. But posting a bikini and swimwear on a beach is fine.
If you want to post pictures with your kid, ensure you’re with them together. Guns are prohibited 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.
You must follow this basic guideline and not send inappropriate images to your match.

Starting Over On Bumble
Now that you’ve restored Bumble and started on a new journey. You need the type of profile that will attract more matches. Otherwise, your bad Bumble history might repeat itself. Here are four Bumble tips to help you get your perfect profile.
Your primary photo is the first picture you will see, so make sure it leaves the right impression. For starters, full-body shots aren’t ideal for a primary photo. But you should include one in your lineup.
The primary picture should feature the upper third of your body, as a study of dating photos considered it the most attractive.
Suggest An Icebreaker In Your Bio
Guys, you understand the struggle of starting 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 Badges are a part of your bio showing what you are looking for: kids, smoking, Star Sign, and more. The more information you have about yourself on your profile, the higher your chances of making matches.
Bumble bios are short, 300 characters each. Prompts give you more opportunities 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.
