Find your person with Bumble’s advanced filters!
Signing Up & Getting Started Signing Up & Getting Started
Filters are a feature on Bumble which helps you curate the users who appear in your Swipe Deck.
The filters for who you’re interested in connecting with (available in Date and Bizz), age, and (in many regions) distance are chosen when you create your account and can be changed at any time. Once you’ve indicated those initial preferences you have the option to set additional Advanced Filters.
Advanced Filters are now a part of Bumble Premium and subscribers are able to choose an unlimited number of Advanced Filters. It’s important to note that you can only select a filter if you’ve self-identified in that category (e.g. if you haven’t indicated your personal stance on smoking you cannot filter for non-smokers).
Not looking for the same thing in a friend as you are for a date? Don’t sweat it! Each of our three modes, Date, BFF, and Bizz, has unique filter options so no matter the mode you’re able to find the connections you’re looking for.
To set up Advanced Filters follow these steps:
On the mobile app:
On Bumble Web:
Remember: The more filters you apply the more limited the number of users you see in your Swipe Deck and (for Boost subscribers) the Beeline. If you feel like things seem a little quiet in your part of the Hive try toggling your filters to allow more folks to appear for you to swipe on.
Are you finding that users are appearing in your swipe queue outside of the filters you’ve set? This is likely because we’ve introduced a new feature to automatically relax your set filters to give you the ability to see users who are just outside of your preferences. Find out more here.
