How to view Bumble privately

Posted on

As a highly innovative dating app, Bumble gives female users a prominent role. In addition to that, it is an application that pays special attention to privacy. Private mode engagement is one such feature. However, in this mode, you cannot use Bumble as you regularly would. Here’s more about it and how to use Bumble in private mode.

How private mode works

Private mode is there so people don’t ping you all the time. When engaged, this feature makes you invisible to everyone except the people you’ve swiped or messaged. This is an innovative feature that has played a big role in changing the world of online dating apps.

However, you cannot be invisible to others and use the app regularly. The ethics would be too questionable if that were the case. So, in private mode, you cannot continue browsing and swiping. So how can you see Bumble privately?

Make private mode work

Unfortunately, there is no hack or cheat that will allow you to use Bumble normally in private mode. You will always be limited. However, if you think of private mode as “being online,” you can make it work. In other words, turn private mode on while you’re not browsing or swiping, and turn it off whenever you want to view Bumble normally. However, there is no limit on how often you can activate or deactivate this mode, so knock yourself out.

Using private mode like this will only allow a small window of time for random people to swipe and message you. It might not be ideal, but at least you won’t have to worry about receiving messages from random people while you’re “offline” (private). If you receive a Bumble notification in private mode, you can be sure it’s from someone you know. TO DO want to hear from (someone you swiped directly on or messaged previously).

Bumble’s Private Detector

Unfortunately, private mode doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be spared from seeing things you don’t want to see on Bumble from time to time. For example, you may have swiped right on someone because they looked perfectly normal, but they may still end up sending you their weird nude photos that you absolutely want to protect yourself from.

That’s where Bumble’s Private Detector comes in. It is an algorithm that automatically determines whether a photo has questionable or explicit content. This function will ask you if you want to see this photo. If you accept, the photo will be revealed. If you refuse, it will disappear from the chat. Then you will be prompted to block the user in question. If you choose to block them, they will be removed from the messages screen and you will not be able to see each other’s profiles.

Alternatively, if the Private Detector finds that the image you submit is obscene in content, Bumble will gently remind you that submitting obscene content may result in your reporting. If you continue and are indeed reported, you will no longer be able to use the app.

Unfortunately, this feature is only available on iOS devices and within US boundaries at this time.

Browse Bumble securely and privately

As stated above, there is no way to enable private mode on Bumble and use it normally. However, if you enable private mode every time you finish browsing or swiping, it will prevent you from receiving messages from people you haven’t swiped or messaged correctly before. The Private Detector will guarantee you even more security.
