Has Bumble been giving you a hard time with constantly changing your profile picture without any warning? Don’t panic; many users report this issue, and there are a few fixes available to resolve it.
If Bumble keeps changing your picture, this usually happens when the “Best Photo” feature is enabled. To resolve this, disable the “Best Photo” feature on your profile settings to stop the app from rotating your pictures or delete all profile pictures except the main one.

How Do I Fix Bumble Keep Changing My Picture?
If Bumble keeps changing your pictures, here are some quick and easy-to-follow solutions that can help you quickly overcome this problem.
Disable the Best Photo Feature
Bumble offers the “Best Photo” feature to determine which of your initial three profile pictures receives the most right swipes, also known as likes, and places this particular photo at the forefront of your profile.
However, you can disable the “Best Photo” feature on your profile to prevent Bumble from changing your pictures in the following way:
- Launch “Bumble.”
- Tap the “Profile” icon in the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen.
- Tap “Complete My Profile” or “Edit Profile.”
- Select “Best Photo.”
- Now, toggle off “Use Best Photo” to deactivate it.
- Click “Save and Close.”
Force Stop Bumble App
The next solution is to force-stop the Bumble app on your device to kill all the processes and refresh your personalized app data.
To force stop the Bumble app on your Android device, go to “Settings,” tap “Apps,” and choose “All Apps.” Select “Bumble” from the app’s list and tap “Force Stop.”
In case you are using an iPhone, swipe up from the bottom to the middle of the screen to launch the “App Switcher” and swipe right to find the “Bumble” app card. Finally, swipe up on the app card to force quit Bumble.
Afterward, relaunch the Bumble app and see if it is still changing your profile picture.
Note: You can also try restarting your Android or iOS device to eliminate any minor errors or glitches causing the Bumble app to change your profile pictures constantly.
Delete The Other Pictures
Since the Bumble app lets you up to 6 profile pictures and then changes your main image to the one that gets the most likes, try deleting the others using the steps outlined below:
- Launch “Bumble.”
- Tap the “Profile” icon.
- Tap “Edit Profile” or “Complete My Profile.”
- Now, under “My photos,” tap & hold the photo you want to delete.
- Tap “Delete Photo.”
Change the Profile Photos
Bumble has a strict policy against photos that contains erotic content, caption laid over them, have watermark or firearms, pictures in swimwear or underwear outside the beach or pool settings, photo of someone that is not you, if your face is not clearly visible, you’ve used too many filters, or image file is too small.
Given these restrictions, opt for such pictures that showcase your personality and interests to prevent them from being changed by the platform automatically.
Clear Cache Data
The cache is temporary data that helps improve the performance of Bumble. However, when this data becomes bulky or corrupted, it can cause the app to misbehave, including automatic profile picture-changing issues.

- Tap “Bumble.”
- Tap “Offload App.”

- Open “Settings.”
- Tap “Apps.”
- Select “All Apps.”
- Tap “Bumble.”
- Select “Storage.”
- Tap “Clear Cache.”
After clearing Bumble cache data, launch the app and check whether Bumble still keeps changing your pictures.
