Bumble is a widely known and used social networking and dating app all around the world. Since the time it was launched in 2014, the platform has grown immensely popular among users. People use the platform to meet new people and form meaningful connections in this online dating world. One key characteristic that sets Bumble apart from other dating platforms is its unique approach to empowering women in the online dating world. It has gained immense popularity, especially among younger users, for its unique features and mission to empower women.
Bumble puts women in the forefront by requiring them to make the first move or approach the other party when initiating conversations. In heterosexual matches, only women can initiate conversations, while in same-sex matches, either person can make the first move.
If you are curious about this, too, keep reading! In this blog, we will explore how long a Bumble profile stays active and how you can get to know about the same. Let’s get started!
How Long Does a Bumble Profile Stay Active?
Bumble is a great platform to meet people you can potentially date, as well as people with whom you can have platonic relationships and networks. Its women-centric functionality also makes it a trendsetter in the dating world.
However, sometimes everyone needs a break. Or maybe, you already found a match or just lost interest in the app. In that case, if you stop actively using Bumble, you might wonder how long your profile will stay active on the platform.
Well, to answer your question, a Bumble profile starts showing less to other users if you don’t use it regularly. However, it doesn’t completely go inactive yet.
A Bumble profile essentially stays active for 30 days since the last time a user logged in to his account. This means if you have opened and used Bumble in the last 30 days, your profile will be considered active; it will also be shown to other users to recommend potential matches.
If you haven’t used Bumble for over 30 days, it will officially consider the profile inactive and stop showing you to others on the platform.
At times, you don’t want to remove your Bumble profile altogether, but just take a break from it. You may be traveling for a work trip or are on vacation; it could be anything. In that case, what do you do? We will explore that in the following section.
What is Bumble Snooze, and how to use it?
As we have just discussed, sometimes you need a break. You might still want your profile on Bumble but may not want to receive new matches or messages on the platform.
In this scenario, you can use the Snooze feature available on the platform. Bumble Snooze is basically a tool that allows users to take a break from actively using the app without permanently deleting their profile.
Your profile stays intact, just as any connections you have made on the platform. Bumble Snooze provides users with an option to temporarily hide their profile from the Bumble community. During this period, your profile will not be shown to other users for matching, and you will not receive any new messages.
Now, let’s learn how you can enable the feature on your account using a step-by-step guide. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Open Bumble on your device and log in to your account.
Step 2: Go to your Profile and select Settings located at the top right corner.
Step 3: In your settings, find Snooze and tap on it.
Step 4: You will be asked to select the duration for which you want to take a break or snooze your account.
You can select from options such as 24 hours, 72 hours, one week, etc.
Step 5: After selecting your duration, you will be prompted with a confirmation message to confirm your decision.
Once you confirm it, your profile will be snoozed for the given time period. It will be hidden from the Bumble community and not be shown to other users during the snooze period.
