Suspect someone is on Bumble and shouldn’t be? Have suspicions about your significant other and want to be sure before you confront them? Has your partner been seen on the app and you want to catch them out? This isn’t a pleasant place to be but one thing’s for sure, it’s better to know for certain than sit there wondering. So how can you find someone’s profile on Bumble?
Bumble is a self-contained dating app that works differently to Tinder as women get to make the first move. This provides very fertile ground for meeting real people and avoiding the lameness and soul destroying disappointment of other dating apps. As women get to choose, men have to up their game and make much more of an effort. This improves the entire dating experience for everyone.
Which also makes it a great place to go if you don’t want to remain exclusive.
Find someone on Bumble
Let’s be clear up front. If you suspect someone of cheating or using dating apps, the best thing to do is talk about it. Holding on to it and dwelling on things could be very destructive. Using the app to catch the person could also be very destructive. Think very carefully about doing it and what it could mean if you do before going for it.
So how can you find someone on Bumble? The only way to do it is to create an account and join yourself or work with a trusted friend who has an account. Bumble keeps its user data to itself for obvious reasons and you have to be in it to win it. Websites promising to find a person for you within a dating app will just use their own account so you may as well do it yourself and save the money.
There is no search function in Bumble so you’re going to have to put in some effort to find that person you’re looking for.
Phone and a friend
If you have someone you trust who is a Bumble user, you can borrow their account if they trust you too. It’s a fast and easy way to find someone’s profile on Bumble. The friend has every right to be there so there is no question there and if they live in the same town even better.
Depending on how your friend uses Bumble, you may need to tweak their preferences a little as matching is based a lot on how those are set. As you get finite swipes per day, it may take a while to find that someone.
Set up your own account
It may just be easier to set up your own Bumble account to find that person. Friends are amazing but if they are actively using their own account, your messing around with location, preferences and any potential matches may not go down too well.
The practical argument for setting up your own account is logical. You get to set up the account exactly so that someone should match and you don’t interfere with your friend’s love life. The moral argument against you setting up an account is that you will be in a similar position to the person you’re trying to catch. Only intent differentiates you from them and you lose the majority of the moral high ground by doing it.
However, if this someone is important to you or you’re considering another life stage with them, it’s better to know than to always wonder.
If you share a home with that person, open a web browser in Incognito Mode or Private Browsing so you don’t leave a trace. If you use your phone, remember to clear browsing data afterwards.

- Navigate to Bumble and sign up.
- Set up a fake account and create a profile.
The random name generator makes short work of coming up with something you can use on a dating app. Play around with it using names and location until you come up with something good.
Spend as much time as you can on the profile and images. You can find series images of the same person online from free image repositories. Choose someone you think the person would be attracted to and put them on your profile.
Where you would usually write a dating profile to attract a wide range of suitable dates, this time tune it to this one particular person. Mention some of their favorite hobbies or pastimes but not all of them. Mention some things that will appeal but throw in others too. If a dating profile looks too good to be true, suspicions may be raised.
Once done, you will need to use your swipes to find the person. You have also dangled the bait and can wait for them to bite. What you do once they have bitten is entirely up to you but I suggest that conversation you should have had in the very beginning!
