You can instantly return to Bumble to a profile you’ve already left using a simple trick called Backtrack. Here’s what you need to know about the Backtrack Bumble feature and how to use it.

Why Bumble Back features are so useful

Scroll through profiles application Bumble can be very exciting, but it can also be very repetitive. It’s very easy to accidentally swipe left to pass someone too quickly before taking a really good look at their profile.

It may also take some time to get used to knowing which way to swipe. When you’re new to an app, you might mistakenly swipe left, thinking you like it that way, only to realize later that you passed it on.

When your finger automatically swipes left before you have a chance to think, the Backtrack feature will allow you to get a better view of the profile so you can reconsider your choice.

Returning to a profile you swiped left to go through is currently only possible from the Bumble app for iOS or Android . This is not possible in the web version.

How to return to the profile you just added
