Isn’t it something how apps like Bumble make it so easy to upgrade to premium features through the app, but when it comes to cancelling that feature, it’s almost impossible to figure out how to cancel that premium account? Part of this is because many such upgrades are now processed as iTune or Google Play subscriptions and so you can’t cancel them through the app itself, but the apps also don’t fall all over themselves to explain that you have to cancel through iTunes or Google Play, let alone how to do it. So here is how to cancel Bumble Boost, which yes, you have to do through iTunes or Google Play (depending on whether you are using the app on an iPhone or Android phone or tablet).

How to Cancel Bumble Boost Premium from an iPhone or iPad

First, go to the Settings area on your device (no wonder it’s so hard to figure out! Going to ‘Settings’ rather than the app itself, or the iTunes or App store is hardly intuitive!)

  1. You *have* to do it through iTunes settings. That is the *only* place you will find the cancel button.

    1. I went into iTunes setting under subscriptions, Bumble. It gives the date my subscription expires, but there is no cancel button. It sounds like it will auto renew unless I cancel. Is that true?

      1. Unfortunately we no longer have access to Bumble; however we do know that folks have had to do it on their computer, not on their phone (in case that is what they were doing). Also this is only for canceling the paid version, not the free version.

  2. Same issue as all of the above ~ but I don’t see your response. How do I cancel Bumble Boost if I don’t see a cancel button?

  3. What if Cancel Subscription is not showing up? Does this mean I’ve already cancelled?

  4. thank you so much, I couldn’t figure this out and they keep taking my money. urgh
    you are awesome

  5. There is no option to cancel my subscription on the bumble subscription page on my iPhone
    Just to renew it
    Need to cancel before 5th September
    Any ideas ?

  6. A copy of a receipt for Bumbleboost came up in our word. We did not subscribe and the receipt gave a visa number that is not our number. We do not want nor did we subscribe.

  7. There is no boost subscriptions under settings and immuaimg an android and paid by card. Any other suggestions?

  8. @ Michelle! My daughter is experiencing the same problem. Her account is being debited at will. Thank you. This is dire

  9. Also experiencing same issue as above. Nothing can be found through play store or settings ?

  10. It is showing there are no subscriptions on my google account. I currently pay for Match and Bumble and I would like to delete them both. They should be there, right? Please help me!
