Are you a Bumble user? Or someone who doesn’t know about what Bumble is! Bumble is a popular dating platform, that lets you make friends online using professional connections through the Bizz section. If you haven’t used Bumble, yet, then you must try this dating platform once for sure.

But if you are a heavy user of Bumble or want to delete the Bumble account or want to take a break from Bumble, then below is the step-by-step guide on how to Delete or Pause the Bumble account.

Dating apps and websites are so popular these days, but sometimes we get addicted to them. So in that case you should take a break from these types of platforms. So let’s get through the basics of the Bumble platform first.

What will happen after deleting your Bumble account

Before we follow the steps to download a Bumble account, there are some important points you must know before deleting your Bumble account.

When you delete your Bumble account, then you can’t restore your account. Which means you will not be able to recover your account after deleting it. You will have to create a new account after deleting an account.

But if you don’t want to date someone then you can use the disable date mode. This feature will allow you to use Bizz or BFF profiles.

All your Bumble accounts will be deleted once you choose to delete your profile and you can’t restore your profile. If you want to store your Bumble profile data, then you can download the data offline. We will see in the next section of this article how to download your Bumble profile data.

Once you delete your Bumble account, it doesn’t mean your subscription will be canceled. So if you have taken the Bumble subscription and added your wallet or bank account there to make the subscription renewal, then make sure to cancel your subscription before deleting your account. Otherwise, you may be charged even after deleting your Bumble account.

If you think that deleting the Bumble app will delete your account, then you are wrong. It will just uninstall the Bumble app and won’t delete your Bumble account. So remember that thing in your mind.

After deleting your Bumble account you can restore it within 28 days, or if you paused your Bumble account then you can resume it anytime.
