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!)
Go to the iTunes & App Store settings.
