The Bumble app recently grabbed everyone’s interest following the infamous murder of Shraddha Walker.  As per the media reports, the accused, Aftaab Poonawalla, and Shraddha Walker allegedly met on this dating app. In recent years, online dating has become immensely popular. However, there are some risks linked with online dating. Here we’ll discuss the Bumble app and general queries, including its functions, features, and almost everything else you need to understand about it, along with the risks of online dating.

What is Bumble App?

Bumble, the well-known dating app developed by the female co-creator of Tinder, Whitney Wolfe Herd, presents itself as a feminist platform where women initiate the connection. The Bumble app was introduced in 2014. Bumble features the same swipe right/left method as Tinder to allow users to browse and interact with potential mates. Bumble offers three formats: one for dating, one for friendship, and one for professional networking.

Bumble includes a few special features; for instance, if a boy and a girl both “swipe right” on each other’s accounts, only the girl can initiate the first text. The connection will end if the other person doesn’t reply within 24 hours. However, It has been claimed that Bumble and many other dating apps have bogus or outdated profiles. One of the major downsides of Bumble is that women must initiate contact within 24 hours. This feature could be terrifying if you’re a shy individual.

How Does Bumble Operate?

You must be 18 years old if you want to sign up for a Bumble profile.

You can begin with your Facebook, Apple, or signing-in phone number.

You must also establish a profile here and submit a photo of yourself, then swipe right to display interest in the next individual.

How to Get Your Bumble Profile Verified?

It’s really simple to verify a Bumble profile, and it doesn’t matter whatever mode you’re in. You must take a Selfie when asked to do so for verification. This selfie is solely used to verify your identity; Bumble ensures it doesn’t appear in any of your profiles.

If no texts are exchanged between matches within 24 hours, they are wiped unless free members activate their daily extension or have Boost or Premium memberships.

Bumble is free, but it also has Boost. Users can re-match with expired connections through Boost for a monthly charge.

Bumble Key Features

The Bee theme is a key feature of Bumble’s UI/UX. Everything references bees, from the colours of honey to the names of features. Check out some features of the Bumble app;

Beehive

Users can be buzzing (well, swiping) on Beehive, primarily looking for potential partners. Users can utilize the right swipe to accept matches and the left swipe to refuse them. If you unintentionally swiped left or changed your thoughts, Bumble also offers a backtrack option. If you’re ready to pay, you can also use the super swipe function to let your likes know they stand out and permit access to super swiping.

Beeline

Beeline is a feature of the Bumble boost subscription service. On the app, there is a section devoted to people who have swiped right on you but whom you haven’t yet matched with; Bumble regards these people as admirers. If you like one of your admirers, you must swipe right on them, and a match will be created.

The Risks of Online Dating

It is a brilliant approach to making new friends and engaging with individuals you might never have met. However, one of the biggest risks is that many people are hunting for vulnerable people to fall prey to their lovely remarks. Teenagers have a high potential risk of getting explicit images, sexual favours, and other things as they enter this realm of relationships.

Moreover, online dating can be used to harm the exploitation of others by people who fabricate profiles, mislead others about themselves, or both. Most online dating people are nice, genuine, and eager for a relationship, but this isn’t always true.
