Things to consider before deleting your Bumble account

Deleting your Bumble account is child’s play, but there are a few things you should know before saying goodbye:

  • Make sure you cancel your subscription before leaving Bumble once and for all. If you don’t, it will keep billing you.
  • Bumble doesn’t get rid of your personal data right after you tap that “Delete account” button. It just makes your profile invisible to others. You can ask it to erase your data right away or wait 28 days for Bumble to do it automatically.
  • If you’re not ready to say goodbye to your Bumble account, you can snooze it. This will pause your account but keep all your conversations and matches. Wondering how to snooze your Bumble account? Read the instructions below.
