Is It Real & How To Get Out? [in 2022]

There are no automatic punishments or “shadow bans” for deleting and recreating your Bumble profile. However, we have found that users who create multiple accounts in a short time (e.g. making five profiles in the span of two months) naturally tend to have fewer matches.

What is a Bumble Shadowban?

Bumble Shadowban is a type of soft ban from Bumble, when you are still able to log in to your profile, swipe other profiles, check your messages but you don’t get any new Bumble profiles matching with you.

You can do anything, buy Bumble coins to activate Spotlights, or use Bumble SuperSwipes on many profiles by liking them by tapping on the yellow hearts, you are still not getting any matches. Zero.

Bumble Shadowban similarly to an explicit permanent Bumble block also seems to be a permanent status, so once you get into a Bumble Shadowban, you won’t get out of it only by waiting a couple of weeks.

Bumble Shadowblock is actually worse in a way than an explicit block from Bumble, as a lot of users don’t even know that they have been shadowbanned, sometimes still paying for premium features or for the premium Bumble subscription.

Bumble permanent block vs Bumble Shadowban

There are two main differences between a permanent official ban from Bumble and a Bumble shadowbans. These are the following:

  • You get a message or a pop-up screen when you try to log in that you have been blocked from Bumble for some kind of policy violations. When you are shadowbanned, they don’t communicate with you anything about your status. (that is why it is called a shadowban)
  • When you are permanently blocked from Bumble you won’t be able to use any features of the app anymore. When you are only shadowbanned, you can use all the features you are just simply not going to get any new matches.
  • It is actually not 100% clear if Bumble shadowban is just an urban legend or a real thing that Bumble does.

    On the official company website in a post about Bumble resets, they deny the existence of shadowbans. At the same time, you can find many users complaining mostly on the Bumble subreddit that they experienced something similar to a shadowban.

    Bumble Official statement on Bumble Shadowban

    Bumble has an official page on their website where they explicitly say that you won’t get shadow banned or in any way penalized for resetting your Bumble account.

    However, they don’t say that they do not use a technique similar to shadow ban ever. So you might not get shadow banned for simply resetting your account, but they might decide to shadow ban you for other violations of their community guidelines.
