Andrey Andreev, founder of Badoo (Which owns a majority stake in Bumble, said,

The safety of our users is without question the number one priority in everything we do and the development of ‘Private Detector’ is another undeniable example of that commitment. The sharing of lewd images is a global issue of critical importance and it falls upon all of us in the social media and social networking worlds to lead by example and to refuse to tolerate inappropriate behavior on our platforms.

Founder and CEO of Bumble Whitney Wolfe Herd is also supporting a proposed law in Texas that would make it illegal to send dues to someone without consent.
