How to hide your location on Bumble
One of the main reasons users hide their location is because many of them want to avoid getting hassled by potential dates who live in a different city. If the two users are in different countries, or even in a different continent, it’s obvious that their dating experience would be limited. But if the user isn’t in a different country and still wants to hide his location, he can choose to ‘Hide’ it.
But being able to hide your location is a double-edged sword. In some ways, you can use this feature to your advantage by not telling people exactly where you are in the world because it may be perceived that you’re a little bit too close (thus possibly offending them). However, on the other hand, using this function to escape local harassment or stalkers is rather easy.
This feature is built right into the Bumble app, and every user who wants to hide his/her location will simply have to slide a switch. At the top-right of their screen, they should see a gear icon (a small square with interlocking gears) that will take them directly to the settings page.
Why you might want to hide your location on Bumble
If you are willing to relocate for the benefit of your relationship, and if your current location is a small town where your dating options would be limited, then you probably don’t have to worry about hiding your location. However, if you live in a big city, such as NYC or LA, then it might make sense to hide your location on Bumble. In a large city like New York or Los Angeles, it is likely that your options for finding love are more limited. You may run into the same people over and over again, and these people probably know where you live and work. That might be exciting in some ways, but you may also become a bit jaded and want to give yourself a chance to meet people from other parts of the country.

Tips for hiding your location on Bumble
If you are able to hide your location, then you can take advantage of Bumble’s location-hiding feature in order to remain hidden from most people. However, it is not a good idea to try to hide your location from someone who has already seen it because they may be suspicious that you are hiding something. Perhaps they think that you are hiding your location in order to lure them into a relationship. If they suspect that you are lying and do not want to date you, they may simply leave the conversation.
To hide your location, first you need to download the Bumble app. You can download it here or by searching for “Bumble” through the Google Play Store. Once you have downloaded the app, you need to set up your profile and select the desired location so that people will see this information when they look at your profile.
However, you do not need to worry about people being able to see your spot on a map because they cannot. The map is only visible for you and the other person who is waiting for your response.
What to do if you get caught hiding your location on Bumble
If you are being “catfished,” then it makes sense to let the other person know that you don’t want to talk to them anymore. You can explain that you want to find someone who lives in your city or town and that it is a waste of time for you to communicate with anyone else. If they persist, then it may be necessary for you to block them. In order to do this, you need to learn how to hide it so they can’t find you.
There are a variety of ways you can go about this, from sending them texts or kissing them goodbye, to holding hands or making a request for a meet up. The more specific the request and the more doubt that is built up in them about your real identity, the more effective it will be.
It is important that you remain open with the person, so they know you aren’t just trying to get rid of them. This will help them see the light and realize how important it is to search for a partner who lives nearby. It is also important that you don’t silence yourself from communicating with all of your friends and family who know where you are.
Above all, you need to be honest with them. Tell them what you are going through and why it is so important for you to get together. If they continue to be persistent, then blocking them may be your only option.
