How to expand the matching radius:

Step 1: Start the Bumble app on your device.

Method 3: Match the blurry images with profiles

If you think you have some great deduction skills, then this method might be a perfect choice for you. Here you simply check all the blurry images that usually appear as a hint of who has liked your profile. Carefully examine the blurry images, and then go to your bumble feed.

Explore the feed and look profile with images that have the same color pattern or appearance as the blurry images you checked earlier. This way you can find out who matched with you, and to confirm that, you can simply right-swipe them and see if you both get matched or not.

Method 4: Like every profile to find the match  

You can also try out this method where you simply right-swipe on every profile and you may end up finding the profile that matched with you. It’s a good way to find a match if you are not looking for someone specific, or you don’t mind connecting with random people.

The problem with this method is that you only get a limited number of right swipes on the app. This means you can easily run out of right swipes without any matches. However, that is quite unlikely, because the Bumble algorithm usually puts people who have matched you previously first on the feed.

Method 5: Close the app and relaunch it

Refreshing the app and the feed can also be a good way to find out potential matches for your profile. When you close the app and restart it, the Bumble feed refreshes and brings up some new profiles on the feed. Most of the time, these new people are the ones who previously matched with you, and you didn’t match with them.

So, there is a high chance that the profile you are seeing on your feed right after restarting the app is the profile that has liked you earlier.

Bonus Tips: How to Get More Matches on Bumble?

There are plenty of different ways to get more matches on bumbles. You can try out some effective tips and tricks like optimizing your profile and using high-quality or good-looking pictures. But there are some technical tips as well that can increase the chances of getting more matches on Bumble. Let’s go through those different tips and tricks here.

Tips 1: iWhere iPhone Location Changer

A great way to expand your locality and range on Bumble is to use location changer software like iWhere. iWhere iPhone Location Changer software allows you to be in a wider range of areas of your choice by changing the location of your phone. The bumble system doesn’t recognize the use of the software because it uses human-like movement by implementing various features. You can easily expand your locality range to more than 161 Kilometers which is the peak distance in Bumble. The software comes with a lot of features to help you do that.

Key features:

  • Adjust movement speed from 1m/s to 50m/s to mimic human movement speed.
  • 4 Different modes (One-stop Mode, Multi-stop Mode, Joystick Mode, Modify Location Mode) of movement to suit various kinds of needs.
  • Click a single button to change the location
  • Flexible movement around the map with a joystick feature.
  • Share popular location settings using GPX files.

Use iWhere iPhone Location Changer to change location?

Step 1: Open the app on your computer, and connect your iPhone with a lightning cable. Agree to the terms and then click on “Start”.

Tips 3: Use high-quality and good-looking photos

Your photograph is your face in the online world. When it comes to dating, your face is the first thing to create an impression on the other person’s mind. So, if you want to get more matches, you have to use a good-looking photo where your face is clearly visible. However, don’t just strike them with a formal photo with no expressions whatsoever. Use casual photos where you are well-dressed, maybe have a smile on your face, or you are simply looking stunning.

As for the quality, you have to make sure the photo is of high resolution and it’s taken under the best possible lighting. Using a good photo can significantly increase your chances of matching.

Tips 4: Write an engaging and interesting bio

Instead of listing qualities, use your bio to paint a picture of your personality and interests. Avoid using generic phrases and words to describe yourself, instead try sharing stories that can showcase your interests or your qualities. Try to spark conversations right within the bio. If you are witty, then use some funny likes to grab their attention. However, don’t try to be forcefully funny. Keep the bio short and sweet.

Tips 5: Be more active  

The perfect way to appear on other people’s feeds a lot is to be more active on the app itself. When you are active on Bumble a lot, the app will start recommending your profile to the other users randomly. Also, try to be responsive to text swipes, or any kind of notification. It will increase your chances of matching with people significantly.


Q: What if someone swiped right on you, but you didn’t reciprocate?

With a free Bumble account, you won’t know who swiped right on you if you didn’t swipe right on them first. Their profile won’t appear in your queue. But the account may keep appearing on your feed, which can be an indication that the person has swiped right on you.

Q: Is there a way to get Bumble Premium for free?

Bumble doesn’t currently offer completely free access to Bumble Boost or Beeline. However, they sometimes have promotions or trials you can keep an eye out for. There are also occasional surveys or tasks within the app that might reward a short-term boost.

Q: Can you message your matches on Bumble without paying?

Yes, you can message your matches on Bumble without paying. Once you have a mutual match (you both swiped right on each other), you can message them freely without a Bumble Boost or Beeline subscription. However, you can only message someone first as a woman according to the Bumble policy. You will only have 24 hours to initiate the conversion, after that, the match will expire.


Well, now you know how to see matched on bumble without paying any money. While the methods aren’t that reliable, they are still worth a try as they don’t cost much. But if you are still not satisfied with the number of matches you are getting now, you can always rely on iWhere iPhone Location Changer to increase that rate. The app will allow to expand the maximum distance to a much higher range and help you connect with people with broader location range.
