The center also connects users to resources from external experts, such as suicide hotlines and resources, intimate partner violence hotlines, and sexual assault hotlines.

As of 2021, Bumble uses machine learning technology to proactively detect harmful, text-based content.

This tech is available in over 100 languages across all Bumble apps, proactively detecting harmful content before it is reported by members. 

Bumble Safety Centre

Bumble developed its own proprietary tool, Private Detector, in 2021.

The tool automatically detects, blurs, and warns users when they receive a lewd photo. Bumble’s Data Science team wrote a white paper explaining the technology behind Private Detector™ and has since made an open-source version available on GitHub.

In 2021, Bumble partnered with a UK-based nonprofit CHAYN to launch an industry-first safety initiative for assault providers.

The partnership with CHAYN, piloted on Bumble in 2021, was expanded to Badoo in 2022, and provides complimentary online trauma support to Bumble and Badoo users who report sexual assault or relationship abuse.

Bumble Stats vs Competitor Stats

The online dating industry is highly competitive and Bumble competes with a number of companies that provide dating products and services. However, online dating is not a winner-takes-all market and users tend to make use of an average of two different apps at the same time.  

With its unique selling proposition, Bumble has emerged as a leader in the global online dating space. As of December 31, 2022, Bumble and Badoo apps ranked among the top five grossing iOS lifestyle apps in 109 and 99 countries, respectively.

Bumble Competitors

According to Bumble, its competitors include:

  • Online dating platforms and apps.
  • Social media platforms that offer dating features. 

While Bumble’s main competitor is the Match Group, which owns rival apps Tinder, Hinge, and OKCupid, it faces growing competition from other popular dating apps. With its friendship and networking offerings (Bumble BFF and Bizz), the company also competes against Facebook and LinkedIn.
