Does Bumble Notify Someone If You Screenshot Their Profile?

Say, you’re going through different profiles on Bumble and you find one that catches your attention. You want to screenshot and share it with your friends, just to get a second opinion. But then you wonder, the other person will be notified if you take a screenshot?

Bumble Screenshot Notification - Notification Received When Someone Takes A Screenshot of A Bumble Profile or Conversation (Fake)

Bumble is slightly different from other dating apps like Tinder and OkCupid. On Bumble, once a match is formed, the woman is the one who has to start the conversation with the first message. This gives women a safer space.

If you screenshot their Bumble profile and they receive a notification, it’s sure to make them feel uncomfortable. That’s probably the last thing you want to do.

So does Bumble notify someone if you screenshot their profile? Fortunately, Bumble does not notify the users when you screenshot a profile. You can snap it and share it with your friends to get a second opinion.

However, remember to not misuse this information. Sharing personal information about others without their consent is a violation of their privacy and is unethical.

Does Bumble Notify Someone If You Screenshot The Conversation

Another concern you probably have is whether Bumble notifies the other person when you screenshot a conversation.

As I mentioned earlier, it doesn’t notify users when a screenshot of a conversation is captured.

Maybe your match said something funny or maybe the conversation has become awkward and you need advice.

Whatever the case may be, you can capture screenshots without worrying about making the other person uncomfortable.

Bumble Screenshot Taken

However, as mentioned earlier, be careful in how you use this power.

Sharing personal information without consent is a violation of privacy and is even considered a crime in certain places.

3 Reasons Why People Share Bumble Screenshots

Just like you’re taking screenshots, others are free to do this as well. So, be careful.

In order to protect your privacy on Bumble, you need to know why people screenshot conversations.

Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. Here are 3 reasons why people screenshot conversations or profiles:

1. Sharing Funny Profiles Or Conversations

Naturally, if you see something funny you would want to share it with your friends.

If you have a funny conversation with your match or if you see a profile with an amusing bio, you would want to share it with others.

You’ll find quite a few threads online dedicated to funny conversations and profiles. These types of screenshots aren’t really a bad thing, so you don’t have to worry about it.

If you do intend on taking screenshots, I suggest blurring out their personal information, to prevent any negative incidents from occurring if your screenshots get shared further.

2. Concerned About A Suspicious Account

If you see an account that’s acting suspiciously, people might also capture screenshots.

If an account user is being creepy or harassing someone, then people tend to take screenshots to warn other users. Also, the profile might be a blatant catfish.

Generally, people also share screenshots if they’ve had a bad experience with a certain account.

3. Getting Advice

Sometimes, people take screenshots simply to get advice from their friends. If you’re talking to someone you like, you would want the conversation to run smoothly.

If you get stuck at any point, asking for advice would be the best option.

If you’re stuck and want to ask your friends for advice, I suggest censoring any personal information before sharing it. This is best for both you and your match.

Imagine if they were ever to discover the screenshot, it would ruin your chances with them. Even if you had no ill intentions.

How To Screenshot Bumble On iPhones

How to take a screenshot on Apple devices depends on whether your iPad or iPhone has a Home button.

  1. If your iPhone has a Home button, take a screenshot by tapping the Home button and the Side button (on the right-hand side of your phone) at the same time.
  2. If your iPhone doesn’t have a Home button, you take a screenshot by squeezing the Side button with the volume-up button on the left-hand side of your phone.

How To Screenshot Bumble On Android

For Android phone users, you can take a screenshot by tapping the power button and volume-down button together.

If that doesn’t work, try holding down the power button and selecting “Screenshot” from the pop-up menu.

And if you’ve set it up, try double-tapping the back of your phone for a screenshot shortcut.

Bumble Privacy Policy

When you sign up for online dating you’re “putting yourself out there” – both figuratively and literally. How much data you give away is an important concern, so let’s check out Bumble’s Privacy Policy.

What Bumble Sees

Bumble’s privacy policy protects your password and financial information from other users. The app itself collects the following information:

  • Name;
  • Username;
  • Email address;
  • Mobile number;
  • Gender identity;
  • Date of birth;
  • Sexual preference;
  • Photographs;
  • Location; and
  • Login information for social media accounts

In addition, your chat history is likely collected by Bumble. There is no mention of end-to-end encryption, so Bumble could probably read your chats if they wished to – and in South Korea, they’re legally required to make a full chat history available to download!

There used to be an ‘Additional Information’ section of their privacy policy, that mentioned:

We may also collect additional information in connection with your use of Bumble, for example, if you use our super cool electronic messaging function.

However, as of 2023, this has been removed.

What Other Bumble Users See

The privacy policy also asks you to be careful with the type and amount of personal information you disclose:

Bumble states: You should assume that anything you post or submit on the App may be publicly-viewable and accessible, both by Users and non-users of the App.

As with any other online platform, once you post something online, it’s out there forever. Consider carefully the information you share, such as political affiliations, religious leanings as well as the content of your Bumble photos. If you want to rethink your public information, consider going invisible to hide your profile for a while.

And remember, you can’t control what other users do with the information they have access to.

So keep this in mind, don’t disclose information that might be misused by others.

To ensure user safety, Bumble does require users to verify their accounts using their phone numbers. This prevents fake accounts from being created on Bumble.

Furthermore, Bumble also uses automated functions and moderators to check user accounts and messages to see there are no breaches of the Terms and Conditions.

Can Bumble Users See When You’re Online?

Bumble users can see anything and everything you post to the app, making your information pretty visible. But do they know when you’re actually there, tapping away your witty replies? 

So can Bumble users see when you’re online? No – Bumble does not indicate online status to other users. However, Bumble states that any user you see in your feed has been active in the last 30 days.

So you won’t know if someone’s online right now but you can rest assured that all of your matches have been on the app recently.

Does Bumble Have Read Receipts?

Read receipts are a controversial technology. They give us the knowledge that someone has got your message – but we all know that antsy feeling while we wait for a reply.

So does Bumble have read receipts? No. There is no read receipt feature on Bumble at any paid tier, so you have no way of knowing if your match has opened your message.

Unlike Tinder, which charges for read receipts, Bumble doesn’t offer this feature for free or for cash.

Personally, I think this is a good thing. Stop freaking out about whether your Bumble match has read your carefully crafted reply. If you’re following my 6 Pillars of a Good Conversation then you’ll have the confidence to know you’re keeping the conversation going.

Protecting Your Privacy On Bumble

Bumble’s privacy policy shows that the site does try to protect your privacy to an extent, however, you should also take some steps to protect your own privacy.

Whether it’s Bumble or not, you should always have your wits about you using any form of online dating. 

Avoid Disclosing Too Much Information

The first thing you need to do is to be careful with the type of information you disclose on the app. Be careful with the type of information you disclose on your profile, keep it relevant and interesting. Avoid adding political or religious opinions and never hand out your credit card information to a match!

Also, be careful with the personal information you disclose. Don’t put anything that would put your safety at risk.

Even while talking on private chat, think before you say anything. You don’t want your private conversation to be on display somewhere on social media.

Match With Verified Accounts

When matching up with accounts check to see if the accounts are verified. The last thing you need is to be catfished by a fake account. Thanks to Bumble’s security, such accounts are rare but you need to be careful still.

If you see any of the following, I suggest reporting the account to Bumble:

  • A minor
  • Someone asking for money
  • Someone trying to sell something
  • Catfish accounts
  • Someone trying to bully or harass others
  • Someone trying to expose the private information of others

Final Thoughts

Generally, the answer to “Do dating apps notify screenshots?” is no – you can screenshot safely on Tinder, Bumble, and Hinge. If you want to take a screenshot of a conversation or profile on Bumble, you can do. As of now, Bumble does not notify its users if screenshots are captured.

However, just because we can take a screenshot on Bumble doesn’t mean we should. I do advise that you be careful with what you screenshot and share.

I hope after reading this post you now have a better idea of Bumble’s privacy policy and how to keep yourself safe!

And now it’s time to upgrade your Bumble account so that your potential matches are screenshotting the heck out of it to show their friends!
