Dating initial contact
However the rate of overly confident males tends to be higher than I've seen on other apps.Bumble also has a BFF feature, but that's really not the focus of a dating app gallery, so I'll save it for another time.
In April 2018, Bumble added an option to sign up using only a phone number, following Facebook's involvement in a controversy with Cambridge Analytica.
Users can sign up using Facebook, and have options of searching for romantic matches or, in "BFF mode", friends. Bumble was founded by Whitney Wolfe Herd shortly after she left Tinder, a dating app she co-founded, due to growing tensions with other company executives.
Wolfe Herd has described Bumble as a "feminist dating app".
Bumble launched a photo verification tool in September 2016 to ensure that users of the app were the same people in their profile pictures.
To be verified, users are asked to submit a selfie of them performing a specific pose; the picture is reviewed by a real person who ensures the user is the person in the profile pictures.
