Longtime Bumble User? Try this Reset

Posted on: June 11, 2021

If you’ve been on Bumble for a while, and you finally pulled the trigger on hiring a dating app photographer, this hack could be the difference between getting a small bump in likes and matches, and a HUGE one. 

Doesn’t matter if you do it before you upload your new dating profile photos, or after. 

>>shoutout to my Client Seth who shared this insight with me so I could pass it along. Here’s the scoop...

After our dating photo session, Seth uploaded his new pics to his old Bumble profile, and left his written bio pretty much the same. 

Seth’s Bumble profile photos before he hired me were...not good.

In his new dating profile photos Seth looks HELLA FINE. To be fair, Seth *is* hella fine. But he also hired a great dating profile photographer (I’m not even attempting to be modest anymore, lol!). 

Anyhow, after his dating photo session Seth uploaded his new hella fine pics to Bumble and saw a slight increase in likes and matches. But it didn’t seem aligned with the giant leap in quality of his photos. 

After about two weeks, he tried something...and it worked. Here’s what he did: 

Seth deleted his Bumble account, unlinked the Facebook app, waited a day, and then signed up again (same phone number, same bio + new pics). 

Seth’s likes “skyrocketed to 100 in ONE DAY".  

Seth said he had been on Bumble for “too long” so maybe that has something to do with it. Either way, it doesn’t hurt to try.

If you’ve massively improved the quality of your dating profile photos on Bumble and aren’t seeing what you’d expect in terms of increased likes and matches, try this...

Bumble Reset 

  1. Copy your written profile somewhere so you can paste it later
  2. Delete your Bumble account
  3. Unlink the Facebook app
  4. Wait 24+ hours
  5. Start a new account (same phone number)
  6. *optional* pay for premium
  7. Paste your bio in there and upload your new & improved pics

I’m not an official hacker, nor am I a Bumble expert, but I do know that apps like Bumble use complex algorithms to determine which profiles to surface and to whom, and it makes sense to me that a “new” profile might get preferential treatment (like, “ladies! Check out this new stud!” But also probably more-so, so the new stud/user (esp since he’s paid for premium) feels super stoked about Bumble and stays on the app, ya know?).  

So there you have it! This little reset worked for Seth, maybe it could work for you! Plus, it’s pretty damn easy so what do you have to lose?

Good luck! Let me know how it goes for you!
