Bumble users will soon have a new way to make sure that the profile they are looking at is not a fake.

After the completion of the verification process, Bumble shows you an image and asks you to take a selfie mimicking the onscreen gesture. Then this selfie be reviewed in real-time by one of the moderators of the company, which will check that your gesture coincides meet your selfie picture in your profile or not. The entire process usually takes less than a minute, according on the company.
