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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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 An outdated version of the app may be incompatible with the device, which can cause all sorts of errors including an inaccurate app reading.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:
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:
Restart your device and then go to the Google Play Store or the App Store to reinstall the app.
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.
