How to pause or delete your Bumble account

Done with Bumble? Then it's time to pull out.

Published onMay 8, 2024

Like all dating apps, Bumble isn’t meant to stay on your phone forever. After meeting someone, whether through the app or by other means, you will probably want to drop the app. The same goes for those bored with dating apps or who want to take a break to focus on themselves. Whatever the case, deleting your account is a surefire way to dissuade further usage due to the finality of the action. Let’s review how to pause or delete your Bumble account.

To delete your Bumble account, go to Profile > Settings > Delete account. Type delete in the confirmation box, then tap CONFIRM.


What happens if I delete my Bumble account?

Let’s get this out of the way first: deleting your Bumble account permanently erases all data on your account, including your account activity, matches, and conversations. You will not be able to reclaim your account after deleting it, as all of your previous account data will no longer exist.

Does deleting my Bumble account cancel Bumble Premium or Boost?

No, and this is important. After deleting your account, you will no longer be able to log back into it — however, your subscription will continue. You will need to reach out to Bumble’s customer service team to have it cancelled or transfer the subscription to a new account.

This is why we urge readers to be careful; if you want to delete your Bumble account, cancel your subscription first. Alternatively, you can pause your account.

How to pause your Bumble account

Pausing your Bumble account is a great way to take a break from the platform while maintaining your account data. It essentially pulls your profile from the platform so nobody new can match with you. After that, you can delete or hide the app on your phone and forget about it.

  • Launch the Bumble app and go to the Profile tab in the bottom left.
  • Tap the gear-shaped Settings button in the top right.
  • Tap Snooze.
  • Choose 24 hours72 hoursA week, or Indefinitely for how long you want to be invisible.
