Change Location on Bumble

If you are an iPhone or iPad user, then the following steps will help you to change location on Bumble.

Bumble is a location-specific online dating platform that has continued to grow since its inception in 2014, with millions of members registered on the platform. Bumble is available in several packages including the high-end Premium package which is the highest paid package on offer.

On the Bumble app, your location is automatically established using your phone GPS. However, you may be interested in finding dates from another location or city. You can change your location in this instance by using the Travel Mode to make connections with any city of your choice.

The only recognized approach approved by Bumble is to activate the Travel Mode for Premium users. Even at that, the location reverts back to your previous location after a week.

The process requires Bumble coins to activate Travel Mode to pick a city of your choice either before or during your travels so that it is very convenient to create genuine and safe connections.

 

A user may want to change his location on Bumble so as to be connected to the dating pool in another city outside his/her present location.
