Bumble is a dating app that uses your location to match you with other users in your location.

So, if the current location that shows up in Bumble is incorrect, you may be matching with people you are unable to meet.

This can make the app useless to you, particularly if you match with people so far away from you, that it is impossible to travel there.

So, how do you fix the wrong location on Bumble? How do you get Bumble to detect your current location and therefore match you with the right people?

Well, the solutions you will find in this article will prove very useful.

Turn Location Services on and Off

Since there may be a problem with the location settings on your device, turning off location services and then turning it on again may help. Follow these steps to do it:

  • Step 1: Open the Settings app on your device and tap on “Privacy.”
  • Step 2: Tap on “Location Services” and tap on the switch next to it to disable it.
  • Step 3: Restart your iOS device.
  • Step 4: Once the device has turned on, open the Settings app again and tap on “Privacy.”
  • Step 5: Select the “Location Services” option again and then tap the switch to re-enable it again.
  • Step 6: Now open the Bumble app again to see if it detects the current location.

Re-Login to Your Bumble Account

It is also possible that there is a problem with the configuration of your account, causing the app to fail to refresh the data. The best way to fix this is to log out and then log in to your account again.

Tap on your profile and then select “Sign Out” to log out of your account. Once logged out, wait a few minutes and then log in back to your account. This will allow Bumble to refresh the data and capture your actual location.

Restart the Bumble App

You may also want to reopen the Bumble app. If the app is already open on your device, close it completely, including in the background.

Then, wait a few seconds and open the app again. This will also force the app to refresh the data on the device and thereby give you an accurate reading of the location.

Restart Your Device

This problem can also be caused by errors in the device’s system itself, such as minor glitches with the system that could affect the Bumble app or Location services.

Restarting your iOS device is one of the best ways to get rid of these errors and allow Bumble to detect the actual location of the device.

Update Bumble to the Latest Version

These problems can also occur if the version of Bumble you are using is not up-to-date. An outdated version of the app may be incompatible with the device, which can cause all sorts of errors including an inaccurate app reading.

Here’s how to update Bumble:

On Android

  • Step 1: Open the Google Play Store on your device.
  • Step 2: Go to your Profile and then tap on “Manage Apps & Device.”
  • Step 3: In the “Updates Available” section, tap on the “Update” button next to “Bumble” and allow the app to be updated.

On iOS Devices

  • Step 1: Open the App Store on your iOS device.
  • Step 2: Tap on your Profile and then scroll down to find Bumble.
  • Step 3: Tap “Update” to get the latest version of the app.
  • Once the update is complete, you can open Bumble to see if the problem has been resolved.

Reinstall Bumble

If you are still unable to get the actual location in Bumble, you might want to try reinstalling the app, especially since this problem can be caused by installation files that may be corrupted or incompatible.

Here’s how you can reinstall Bumble on your device:

  • Step 1: Find the Bumble app icon on your Home Screen.
  • Step 2: Tap and hold on the app icon to open various options.
  • Step 3: On iOS, tap “Remove App.” On Android, tap “Uninstall” and the app will be removed from the device.

Restart your device and then go to the Google Play Store or the App Store to reinstall the app.

Wrapping Up

Usually, Bumble will work without any issues, detecting your current location and providing you with nearby matches to choose from.

But sometimes and for varied reasons, it can fail to detect the actual location of your device. The solution above should be able to help though.
