The Secret Unveiled - How Bumble Algorithm Works

Like most of the trending dating applications, Bumble has not disclosed how their algorithm works exactly! However, based on the speculations from users of this app, we have come up with the following interesting theories.  

The people who have right-swiped on you will appear first

There is no concept of liking any profile here. You simply have to right swipe the profiles you like. This is just like Tinder. Most Bumble users have noticed that they have more matches early on. And the matches tend to filter out with time.

A possible reason for this is the Bumble algorithm prioritizes showing you people who have already liked you means who have swiped right for you. If you find that the matches tend to dwindle over time, simply give the swiping a bit of a break. Then see if your matches pick back up after some time away as plenty of new people are joining this dating app every single day.

If you act like a desperado, you will be penalized

Well, the app’s main objective is to find the right date or match for you. Now, if you start swiping right to everyone just to save time even if you are not interested, the app’s algorithm will make sure to flag your profile. And it will push your profile right to the back of the queue. Thus, you will have a hard time being noticed by any new profiles! So, be a bit selective while swiping for your matches.

The algorithm doesn’t check and show profiles based on your previous matches

Maybe you have certain preferences like your dates have to be tall. And you are only swiping right on the profiles who are tall. Now, the Bumble algorithm does not keep track of that. It will show you a variety of profiles that might not be your type at all. 

This is indeed a great thing about the algorithm. Why? Well, most of us prefer to get a match with a firmly imprinted “type” in our brain. It stops us from allowing ourselves to be surprised by someone who does not fall under that category. This algorithm is all up for giving surprises!

How frequently you are active on the app doesn’t matter

According to a lot of Bumble users, even if you do not use the app for a long time, your profile is still visible to every other Bumble users. This algorithm feature is a bit different from another popular dating app Tinder, where inactive profiles tend to fade out with time. 

You have to use clear and good profile photos

According to some Bumble users, they have done some experiments with blurry photos, incomplete bio information, etc. It has been noticed that the match rate has dropped significantly for those profiles. Hence, make sure you are using clear and good profile photos along with the right bio information.

Other than the above-mentioned points, our other two theories about Bumble algorithm are:

  • Commonly attractive profiles in your area appear first 

  • You can give yourself a head start
