The chief executive officer of Bumble Whitney Wolfe Herd will now travel with a bodyguard. She will also now travel with a full time security staff as well. This is in response to a cyber attack she received last year in 2017. During a recent interview, Whitney Wolfe Herd stated that neo Nazis had posted photographs to the staff of her company. With this cyber attack, Herd then contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation to help her resolve the matter. Herd also said that since her company is feminist and was therefore a target of neo Nazi groups. She believes that the neo Nazis attempted to discredit and bring down the site.
According to reports, Bumble had the cyber attack two weeks before a rally of white supremacists took place in Charlottesville, Virginia in August of 2017. Whitney has stated that there is a lot of anger and animosity towards feminist sites and organizations such as Bumble. Wolfe Herd also believes that misogyny is very dangerous and that there are still a number of people who are supportive of it. Misogyny is very active in the United States according to Whitney.

Internet dating was a very exciting thing to many people. With the internet, people would be able to meet others in a safe and convenient environment. They were no longer restricted to friends and their place of residence. While online dating looked to be quite exciting, it has its drawbacks and negatives. According to Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe, things such as stalking, trolling, and revenge porn become widespread. This created a lot of aggressive behavior by people who were looking to antagonize other people. However, Whitney Wolfe has looked to create a website where actions such as kindness, complimenting and treating women respectfully would become the standard. She has been able to do this with her new site Bumble.
By creating the website Bumble, users are able to participate in social networking that is constructive as well as pleasant. Users can contact one another and provide support and compliments on a regular basis. This creates a healthy environment for people to make friends as well as seek dating partners more efficiently.
