Bumble Stuck On Verify

Bumble Stuck On Verify

Bumble has a strict system in place to check the authenticity of its users, but sometimes, its app gets stuck on verify and won’t let you match with anyone. 

If Bumble is stuck on verify, you might not be following the instructions for the profile photo. To fix this, do the exact pose for the profile photo as asked in the sample picture. It is also possible your phone is running low on storage because Bumble needs to download data to complete the verification process. 

In this article, we’ll explain why Bumble is stuck on verify when you are authenticating your account and how you can get rid of this frustrating issue quickly.

If Bumble is stuck on verify and you cannot access the full features of your account, here are 9 proven solutions that have helped many users fix this problem in no time.

Replicate the Exact Pose of The Model

When you are verifying your Bumble account on your phone, the platform asks you to submit a selfie while replicating the exact pose of the model displayed on your screen during the process. 

Bumble then uses an automated and human review system to check if you are a real person. However, if you fail to provide the exact photo as asked, the platform gets stuck on verify.

To fix this issue, take the exact selfie as the model in the sample photo, submit it, and hopefully, Bumble will verify your account now.

Create a New Account

If your Bumble account stays stuck in a continuous verification loop, someone might have reported your account as fake, or you’ve violated any community guidelines on the platform. 

Due to this, Bumble may shadow-ban your account without any warning and ask you to verify your account. 

Unfortunately, there is not much you can do about this except to create a new account on Bumble.

NOTE: Sometimes, Bumble experiences technical issues, due to which it stays stuck on verify and won’t let you access your account. So, wait for 24-48 hours before verifying your account again and see if the problem persists. 

Free Up Phone Storage

When you attempt to verify your account on Bumble, the app may need to download or store some data locally on your phone. But if your phone’s storage is critically low, it prevents Bumble from completing the verification process. 

To create more storage space on your phone, review and uninstall any app that you no longer use or need. You can also delete unnecessary photos, videos, and files that are taking up the much-needed space. 

Once you have enough space on your phone, attempt the verification process again on Bumble and verify the fix.

Configure the Date and Time Settings

Some users report that if the time and date are incorrect on the phone, Bumble also gets stuck on verify. 

The best solution here is to configure the time and date on your phone according to your location. Here’s how:


  • Open “Settings.”
  • Go to “General Management.”
  • Tap “Date and Time.”
