How To Change Your Name in Bumble

Bumble is one of the most popular dating apps but it has some strict policies. So if you have been using it for some time, you probably know that altering some of the information is not that easy.

However, many people wish to have their nickname, rather than their actual name, displayed on Bumble. This would be very convenient but you need to remember that Bumble is a dating app with real people who wish to engage with other 100% legit users.

The reason why it might be almost impossible to change your name on Bumble is to avoid harassment or complaints. And you should take that into consideration when creating a profile in the first place. Though there are ways to change your name on Bumble, you should be aware that it might affect your match rate.

We have gathered a few tips that can help you change your name or other pieces of information on Bumble, so feel free to check them out.

Initial Account Information

Bumble offers two ways to create an account. You can choose Facebook or Another Option. Those who wish to have something other than their Facebook name on Bumble should click Use Another Option. But let’s dig deeper and explain how you can change your name using either of the sign-in methods.

Logging with Facebook

When you download and install the app you are presented with the log-on screen which gives you two options to sign up.

The app offers you the ability to use your Facebook account with a little disclaimer at the bottom. Bumble doesn’t actually post to Facebook but they will get all your profile information including your name. And there is no way to change your name unless you change it on Facebook first.

Once you choose the Continue With Facebook option and open the Facebook app, the following window appears.

Basically, the only required pieces of information are the ones in your public profile. You can uncheck all the others if you are not comfortable with sharing it with Bumble. However, even if the information that is not required is unchecked the app still gets your age and location.

At this point, you would have to change your Facebook name in order to change your Bumble name. But then again we have to bear in mind that this is a security feature that prevents abuse of the app. And it is generally advisable to stick to the real information about yourself if you are in the online dating scene.

How to Work Around It

Some people may choose to use an alternative Facebook account for Bumble. This would, of course, allow you to put in any name you want and temper with other information. However, we should warn that it might result in a ban or poor match rate.

There are a few steps that you can take to change your name. But they include creating another Bumble account with different information or deleting the first one. First, we will deal with creating another profile by choosing Use Another Option.

Step 1:

Go to the Settings menu and log out of your account.

When you log out you will be taken to the Bumble Home screen where you should choose Use Another Option. This way you are basically creating a completely new profile separate from the one you already have with Facebook.

But this gives you the option to use any name you like on Bumble.

Step 2:

Fill out your phone information and expect to get a call. Once you get the call, you have to type the last four digits of the caller ID in the given boxes.

If you typed the correct number, the call should arrive within 30 seconds. In case there is no caller ID you can choose to receive a text message or go back and retype your number.

When the verification is done and you have uploaded your favorite pictures, you will get to the Introduce yourself menu in Bumble. Here you can put in any name you wish, change your birthday, and give any invented info. But you should note that your location will still be clearly visible in the profile.

Deleting the Account

You may want to sign in with an alternative Facebook account that has less personal information and the name you feel good about. There are a couple of steps you need to take in order to achieve this.

Step One:

Go to the settings menu in the Bumble app and click on the Delete Account button.

Once you complete a few steps to verify that you actually want to delete the account, you will be taken back to the Home screen. This will allow you to set up your profile again using a different Facebook account.

You should note that in order to complete the process you would have to be logged into the desired Facebook profile on your mobile device.

Step Two:

Even though you deleted your Bumble profile, the app still has access to your Facebook account. Open the Facebook app and go to the Account Settings icon.

Once you are inside, swipe down to Settings Privacy and open the drop-down menu. In the menu, tap on Settings.

In the Settings menu swipe up until you reach Apps and Websites and tap to open it.

On top of the Apps and Websites menu, you can find Logged in with Facebook settings. Tap on it to enter the settings and disable Bumble.

When you are inside the Logged in With Facebook setting, it should be easy for you to find the Bumble app. Tap on the circle in front to mark it, then tap Remove to revoke it from Facebook.

Now that you have removed Bumble from your initial Facebook account, you can connect the app to an alternative one which has the name you want displayed on Bumble.


Even though it may sound easy, changing your name on Bumble takes some effort. But if you are ready to go through the hassle it shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes to complete the process. However, you should note that it actually means either changing your Facebook name or creating a completely separate Bumble profile target=”_new” .
