Sometimes you see something on Bumble that is too funny, or ludicrous that you just have to share it with your friends. At the same time, you may not want the users to know that you took a screenshot of a conversation as that’ll send a wrong message that you are interested in dating.
Bumble is one of those dating apps where you don’t want to trigger a notification that might make the person believe that you want to meet up if you intend to post their content on another online platform.
This might have you wondering, “Does Bumble notify the other user if you take a screenshot of their page?
The short answer is no. Bumble does not notify users when you screenshot their content or photos.
This means you don’t have to worry about being “found out” if you take a screenshot from the person’s profile or messaging center.
What is Bumble?
For those unfamiliar with Bumble, it is a dating app for those seeking a new friendship, romance, or business.
Bumble is different from other dating apps because only women make the first move. After a male profile is matched to a female, she must contact the man within 24 hours, or they lose the connection.
In same-gender matches, Bumble allows both parties to make the first move, but the opportunity expires if it doesn’t happen within 24 hours.
What is Swiping?
Like many other dating apps, Bumble uses swiping to browse through the profile pictures of prospects.
If you make a swiping motion to the right on a person’s profile, it indicates that you are interested. The other party is notified and also has the opportunity to swipe right.
If there is no swipe right then, you do not have a match. If there is, then you receive a notification of a match.
Private Conversations Are Initiated By Women
A well-known feature of Bumble is that a woman must always initiate the conversation, or the exchange does not happen. This feature sets Bumble apart from dating apps like Tinder.
Sometimes you want to swipe right, but before you do, you might want to take a screenshot of a memorable profile before you dump the individual as a potential date.
Remember that Bumble is not a private platform and that non-Bumble users can see some of the dating profiles.
How to Take A Screenshot on Bumble
Now that you know that you can’t get caught taking a screenshot on Bumble, here are all the ways to take one with different devices.
How to Take A Screenshot On An Apple iOS Phone
If your Apple cell phone device is older and has a home or touch ID button, press the side button and Home button simultaneously and hold for two seconds.
An animation appears onscreen, notifying you that your screenshot is a success.
On a newer iOS phone with FaceID, you press the side button and volume up button simultaneously for few seconds. The device will open a window that says “Screenshot.” Tap the window to take the shot, and then tap done.
On iOS phones, screenshots are stored in a folder called Screenshots.
How to Take A Screenshot On An Android Device
Find the Bumble content you want to take a screenshot of, and then hold the Power button and Volume Down button down simultaneously. Some phones also support screenshot gestures, such as three finger swipe to take a screenshot.
The screenshot is saved to your photo gallery on your Android mobile device.
Unlike other dating apps, the Bumble App does not allow you to watermark photos in the Bumble app; however other users’ photos are not considered fair game. Do not commit fraud by watermarking a photo that is not yours.
Bumble is also strict with members who screenshot a profile photo and then use it as their identity. That can result in a ban or being reported to the authorities.
