Based on my personal experience with Bumble, searching for a profile on this app isn’t exactly impossible.
You can’t look someone up on Bumble directly. No account searches, no directly finding Bumble profiles according to your wishes.
It’s true that this app only allows you to swipe and not to browse.
Hence, you can have access to Bumble profiles indirectly through search engines or third-party apps.
But, the most effective and easy way to do a profile search on Bumble is to create a temporary profile and use the filters of this app.
For more, check these 5 ways you can use to do a Bumble profile search:
1. To find out if someone is on Bumble, you can create a temporary profile.
To find someone specific on Bumble, you need to create an account.
Considering that Bumble doesn’t have a search bar where you can search people, this is the only way to search for someone on Bumble effectively.
Whether this is someone you’re trying to find on Bumble again, a partner, or a random person, this is one of the most effective methods.
If you don’t want your profile to be visible to others, you might even create a fake profile just to have a quick look.
Yet, you should know that it might not take longer until Bumble bans your account for giving fake information.
Furthermore, here are a few steps that you should take to search a profile on Bumble to find out if someone is using it:
- You can use Basic Filters;
- To find them go to the gray hive icon, click on that and go to Swipe Queue.
- Then you can encounter an icon that shows two slider lines;
- There you can find Filters;
- Once you click on Filters, you can make your selection. You can choose age, distance (location), and language.
Note: You will be able to use the filter of language only if you have selected one language on your profile.
Also, if your profiles aren’t matched, you can get only basic info from their profiles.
If you want specific info, you can use Advanced Filters. But, to use these filters you need to pay for Bumble Boost or Bumble Premium.
2. You can find someone on Bumble with their phone number by using third-party apps.
To view Bumble profiles without an account, you can use third-party apps.
Unfortunately, apps such as Social Catfish and Buzz Humble, are not entirely free but make the process easier to do a Bumble profile search.
- To use Social Catfish you need to enter their name, surname, reversed photo, or reversed phone number.
- You can also add additional info such as their location and username.
- Then you can click search. To get the results, you need to pay starting from $5.73.
On the other hand, if you want to find a specific person on Bumble, you can also use Buzz Humble.
- You can search their first name, their age, and the last location where they used Bumble.
- You have to write the link where you want to receive the results and click on Search Now.
- To make the search and get the results, you need to pay $7.
3. You can see if someone is on Bumble by using Google or Bing.
If you want to find someone on Bumble by name then you can search them on search engines.
Even though this method might take more time and effort and might not give you good results.
That’s because they might use another username or name or might hide their profile so search engines cannot detect it.
But, if you choose to find someone on Bumble for free then you might give this method a try.
- Go to Google or Bing whatever is suitable for you. I recommend you to use both of these search engines because they generate different results.
- Then you might use their full name or any kind of username that you think they use on their social media and then write bumble.com.
- Lastly, just click on search.
4. You can view Bumble profiles if you ask a friend to use their Bumble account.
You can look up someone on Bumble if you ask a friend to use their Bumble account.
Even in that case, you need to use filters such as their age, location, or language, so their profile can pop up.
Otherwise, you cannot search for their name and surname on this app.
If you have a best friend that might have friends on Bumble who are mutual with the person that you want to find then it will be easier for you to find their profile.
- If their name or profile doesn’t appear immediately then you should readjust filters. Bumble allows you to change filters from time to time.
5. Use their number, Apple ID, or Facebook to sign in to their Bumble account.
If you want to check out if someone is on Bumble then you can try to use a simple trick.
Especially, if you’re in a relationship with them then you can try to sign in on Bumble using their phone number, Facebook account, or their Apple ID.
You need to click on one of these and then click on the option Forgot My Password.
If they have already signed up on Bumble using these three different ways, they will get a message that someone is trying to sign in to their account.
Make sure that you can use one of these accounts so you’ll be aware when this message gets delivered.
I don’t advise you to do this because it will impact your relationship negatively. You better ask them and be direct.
How to not invade their privacy while searching for their profile on Bumble!
While looking up someone on Bumble, you should make sure to not invade their personal space.
To avoid it you need to follow these tips:
- Go and read Bumble Rules.
- If you’re in a relationship with that person, try to communicate more.
- Speak to a tech expert before trying to break their passwords or check if they are using Incognito Mode.
On top of it all, the best solution is to create a temporary profile that will allow you to have certain access to other Bumble profiles.

If someone deletes their Bumble profile, you will no longer see their profile in your match queue.
If you’re already messaging this person and they deleted their account then in their profile will write “deleted user”.
Hence, they might be using Snooze Mode where they can hide their profile from all Bumble members and even their matches.
Their profile won’t be visible for 24,72 hours or more.
– How to share a Bumble profile?
You can share a Bumble profile only with other Bumble matches or friends on this app.
You need to go and look for the share icon that is located in the top right corner of the person’s first photo.
You can also link your profile’s URL to your social media bio if you feel comfortable doing it.
– Can someone find you on Bumble with your phone number?
Yes, it’s likely for someone to find you on Bumble with your phone number, if you have signed up on this app using that number.
They can find your profile only by using third-party apps but if you’re using Snooze Mode then they might not find you even through these apps.
To search for a profile on Bumble you need to either create a Bumble account or use other apps to check whether someone has a profile.
Just like Tinder, Bumble doesn’t have a search bar that allows you to search profiles on this dating app.
Instead, you can find a profile using simple or advanced filters if you want to have accurate results.
Also, if you choose to not create a Bumble profile or pay to use advanced filters, you use third-party apps.
Hence, you should know that to use these third-party apps, you need to pay.
Thus, you can choose whatever works best for you.
All the best!
