How to Check BVN with Mobile Phone

Introduction

Having a Bank Verification Number (BVN) these days is as important as having a bank account and the details at one’s fingertips, it is also safe to say that the BVN is as important as having a National Identity Card in Nigeria, because some effects on your account will request for your National Verification number.

The BVN is a form of identification implemented by The Central Bank of Nigeria to reduce the rate of illegal bank transactions and frauds, even on third parties accounts. The BVN links different accounts of one owner together.

Because of its relevance, people are advised to get and have their BVN on their phones or an easily accessible place. Nigerian Banks and mobile networks have also joined hands to see that the monetary assets of people are safe while in the bank.

One can easily check his or her BVN by just dialling a code, it doesn’t matter the bank or mobile network a person uses. It is so easy to get a BVN, all one needs to do is get the codes for each of the mobile networks and possibly the pattern a bank one operates with, to get the BVN. Every bank has its own special mode that a person can use to check or get his BVN online, so long as he is using the bank’s mobile app or site.

How to Check BVN online

Checking a BVN online or getting your BVN via mobile phone is as easy as dialling a code, a code provided for by the bank you operate with and the Nigerian mobile network you opened the account with. The number has to be registered with your account number, else there will be no results as regarding getting a BVN.

Below is a list of Nigerian mobile network producers and the codes they provided for their customers to check their BVN.

You can use two methods to check your BVN, which is an 11-digit number. For the first, all you need to do is have a phone and dial a code that is provided by the different networks, to give you the digits.

How to check BVN on MTN: If your network provider is MTN, to check your BVN, all you need to do is dial * 565*0#. After a short while, the 11 digits BVN will appear on your device’s screen. Though easy, this process has a service charge of about 20 Naira, depending on what your network operator chooses to deduct.

How to check BVN on Airtel: To check your BVN using your mobile phone on an Airtel phone number, one must first dial the USSD, *565*0#. After doing this, a customer should be deducted an amount of 20 naira. This means one must have a reasonable amount of call units or airtime to perform this operation.

How to check BVN on Glo: The Glo network is not any different. If you happen to use the Glo network and consider that it is time to check your BVN, probably because it is an urgent one, all you need to do is to have just enough airtime for the Glo network to deduct at least 20 nairas from your account balance. Dial the USSD code, *565*0# and wait for a few minutes, then, you will have the 11-digit number on your screen.

The second, one would need data and a smartphone or a tab with his or her bank’s mobile app. If you do not have the mobile app for your bank, another assuring way to get it is by visiting your bank portal online, then check for the customer service information portal. There you can find a way to access or get your BVN.

Getting your BVN is really important. After going through all of these processes, you want to be sure that you save the 11 digit somewhere safe or even as a contact, in order to not always repeat the same process to get one thing done.

If you want to check your BVN according to the bank you use, it is definitely not a problem, because the USSD code given above, which is *565*0# can be used by any bank. The only time one would not use the code to get a BVN is if the person insists on visiting the bank’s site or to use the bank’s mobile app.

One very important thing to not forget also is that, you must always dial that code with the number you used to register that bank account, else the code will not respond. Do not forget also, that your BVN is an identity, it must be kept safe. If revealed to strangers or fraudsters, you might lose all your money, guard and keep it safe.
