The indicators helping you to find out if a person is active on Bumble are:

  • Recent Activity

If you engage with someone on the profile and the person responds to you quickly, it indicates that the person is active on Bumble. Hence, you can monitor the recent activity of the person to check whether the person is active or not.

  • Looking for the recent profile updates

You can check if the person has a recently updated profile picture or any other information. Any recent profile updates hint that the person is active on Bumble.

  • Possible location updates

Further, when a person moves, the location of the person is changed when they use the app even once. It is a clear indicator of that the person is active. The current location of the person changes according to the device’s location. Further you can look if the profile is showing that the person is away from their location or not.

  • Checking if the profile appears in recent stacks or matches

A person who is active on the Bumble may appear frequently on your recent stacks or matches. This is due to the frequent swiping by the profile.

  • Monitoring the message read receipts- For Premium users

If you’re a premium Bumble user, you have another indicator for finding out if the person is active or not. Try to message the person and monitor the read receipts. If the person has not read your messages, the chances are high that the person is not active yet.

However, for free version of Bumble, it will only indicate “READ” as the message read receipt when you open the chat. Hence, it still remains confusing for the free Bumble users to find out if the person is active or not.
