Bumble is a dating app with a difference. It puts women in control of the conversation and allows them to make the first move. This can be a great way to meet new people, but what if you want to change your location? Maybe you’re traveling, or you just want to see what’s going on in a different part of town. In this guide, I’ll show you how to change your location on Bumble, so you can start meeting new people wherever you are.
To change your location on Bumble,
- Turn on the “Travel Mode.”
- Change your GPS location
- Use A VPN to change the location
- Report technical problems to Bumble
- Use a third-party app
You will be able to change your location to anywhere in the world with any of these methods. Continue reading to learn more about these methods.
Let’s start with a little introduction. Bumble is a location-based social application that facilitates communication between interested users. In heterosexual matches, only female users can make the first contact with matched male users, while in same-sex matches, either person can send a message first. Users can sign up using their Facebook or Instagram accounts and can also link their Spotify accounts to their profiles. In October 2016, Bumble launched its professional networking platform, BumbleBizz. On February 22nd, 2019, the app announced it had over 30 million registered users.
It’s important to note that Bumble is not just a dating app but can also be used for making friends or business connections. The app is free to download and use, but paid features to allow users to have more control over their matches and profile.
Now that we know a little more about the app let’s move on to how to change your location in Bumble.
Why Change Your Location In Bumble
There are several reasons why you might want to change your location in Bumble.
- One reason is if you’re planning on traveling and want to see if there are any matches in your destination ahead of time.
- Another reason is if you’ve recently moved and want to change your location to reflect your new city or town.
- If you had set the wrong location when you first signed up for Bumble, you might want to change it, so your matches are more accurate.
- Lastly, some users might want to change their location to hide their current location for privacy reasons.
Whatever the reason, there are a few different methods you can use to change your location in Bumble. Read on to find out how.
How To Change Your Location On Bumble?
How problematic has it been for you to change your location in Bumble? If it has been quite a stressful experience, this post will help. Changing your living place must have been something that has crossed your mind at least once if you are a user of Bumble.
There can be many reasons why you would want to do this. Maybe, you recently got a new job in another state, or maybe you went on a vacation and made some friends there whom you want to keep in touch with through the app.
In any case, it is not difficult to change your location in Bumble. You can do so by following any of the methods given below.
Turn On The “Travel Mode.”
For the times when you are traveling to another place for a significant amount of time, Bumble has a feature called “Travel Mode.” When this mode is turned on, your profile will only be shown to people in the city that you’re currently in.
To turn on Travel Mode:
- Open the app and go to your profile page.
- Visit “Settings” and then tap on “Travel Mode” under Location.
- Turn on the toggle for “Travel Mode.”
Now, your profile will only be shown to people in the location that you have selected. Easy peasy!
Note that you will need a premium Bumble subscription to use this feature.
Change Your GPS Location.
Are you familiar with the GPS location on your phone? If not, it is the location provided by the Global Positioning System on your device. You will find many fake GPS location apps on the internet.
These apps can change your GPS location so that Bumble thinks you are in another place. This is a great way to change your location without having to pay for a premium subscription.
There are many fake GPS location apps available, but I recommend using “Fake GPS Location – Spoofer” for Android and “Location Faker” for iOS.
Once you have installed the app, open it and set your location to the place where you want it to appear on Bumble. Then, open Bumble and start swiping!
Use A VPN To Change The Location.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a network that is used to send and receive data over a public or shared network. A VPN can be used to change your location so that Bumble thinks you are in another place.
You will find many VPN apps on the internet, but I recommend using “ExpressVPN” or “NordVPN.”
Once you have installed the app, open it and connect to a server in the location where you want it to appear on Bumble. Then, open Bumble and start swiping!
Report Technical Problem To Bumble
If you’re having trouble changing your location, you can report it as a technical problem to Bumble. To do this:
- Open the app and go to your profile page.
- Go to “Contact and Support” and then tap on “Report A Problem.”
- Select “Location” from the list of options.
- Enter a detailed description of the problem you’re having, and then tap on “Send.” A Bumble representative will get back to you as soon as possible to help you resolve the issue.
Use A Third-Party App.
If you’re willing to spend a little money, you can use a third-party app to change your location. These apps are usually very easy to use and provide great results.
One of the best apps I’ve found is “Dr. Fone – Virtual Location (iOS).” This app allows you to change your GPS location to anywhere in the world with just a few clicks.
Another great app is “Fake GPS Location – Spoofer” for Android. This app has a free and a paid version, but I recommend using the paid version to get the most out of it.
However, you will find many other great apps if you do a little bit of research.
You can use these different methods to change your location in Bumble. If you tried all these methods and still have trouble, you can report it as a technical problem to Bumble.
After You Change Your Location In Bumble
Now that you’ve changed your location, you’re probably wondering how it will affect your matches. After all, you’re now being shown to people in a different place. And you may be wondering if they will be able to tell you that you’ve changed your location.
The answer is no; they will not be able to tell that you’ve changed your location. Bumble does not notify users when someone changes their location.
However, there are a few things that you should keep in mind after you change your location.
- If you’re planning on moving to another location permanently, you may want to update your profile to reflect your new location. This way, you’ll be more likely to match with people who are in the same area as you.
- You should also keep in mind that changing your location too frequently may result in your account being banned. So, if you’re going to use this feature, use it sparingly.
- If you have any matches who live in the city that you’ve moved to, you will see their profiles in your “New Matches” section. However, you will only be able to message them if they’ve already swiped right on your profile.
- If you move back to your original location, you will see all of your old matches in your “New Matches” section. You will also be able to message them again.
Should I Grant Bumble Location Permission?
When you first open the Bumble app, it will ask for your location permission. You can either grant or deny this permission.
If you grant Bumble location permission, it will be able to show you matches who are in your area. It will also use your location to show you ads that are relevant to your area.
On the other hand, if you deny Bumble location permission, it will not be able to show you any matches in your area. However, you will still be able to see matches that are in other areas.
You can always change this setting later by going to your phone’s Settings app and then selecting “Bumble.” From there, you can either enable or disable location permissions.
Hide Location In Bumble
Do you want to use Bumble, but you don’t want anyone to know your exact location? I understand how you feel. However, there are plenty of reasons why you might not want to share your location with Bumble (or any other dating app).
But the sad thing is that there’s no way to hide your location in Bumble. The app uses your location to show you matches who are in your area.
If you don’t want to share your location with Bumble, then I recommend using one of the other methods on this list (such as changing your GPS location or using a VPN) to change your location.
I’ve been using Bumble for a while now, and I think it’s a great app. It’s one of the few dating apps that doesn’t require you to link your Facebook account, which is a plus in my book.
I also like the Travel Mode feature, which allows you to change your location to match with people in other areas. I’ve used this feature a few times when I was traveling, and it’s been helpful in meeting new people. I found the love of my life on Bumble when I was on a business trip. Now you can imagine how grateful I am to the app.
Of course, there are a few downsides to using Bumble. For one, the app is geared more towards straight people than LGBTQ+ people. This is something that the company has been working on, though, and they’ve made some progress in recent years.
Another downside is that Bumble doesn’t have as many users as some other dating apps (such as Tinder). However, I think this is because Bumble is a newer app.
Overall, I would recommend Bumble to anyone looking for a dating app that’s a little different from the rest.
