Do you know you can actually check your bvn on mtn anytime anywhere with just your phone? It’s very easy and straight forward and you’re going to see how to do that on this post.
Bank Verification Number popularly known as BVN is biometric system introduced by Central Bank to reduce identity theft, fraudulent transactions and other illegal banking transactions in Nigeria. Banks use it to register and identify their customers, every account holder on any bank must have a bvn which contains biometrics of their identity.
It contains the biometrics (fingerprints and picture) of each user in a bank and banks use it to verify the identity of each of their customers.
It is very important you have a bvn, if you don’t have a bvn go to a bank and ask any of the customer care on how to get your own bvn, follow the procedures and you’ll get yours that same day.
Because without having your bvn you won’t be able to enroll for your NIMC (National Identity Card), fill some very important documents in the country etc so it’s very necessary and important to have yours as a Nigerian.
That’s just a friendly reminder for those that don’t have a bvn but if you already have bvn and want to know how to check your bvn on your mtn sim let’s quickly get right into it, see how to do that below.
Before checking your bvn make sure that the mtn sim card in your phone is the one you used to open that your bank account.
I’m talking about the mtn sim card that is associated with that your account, the one you used in registering that your bank account, so if it’s not in your phone you won’t be able to check your bvn. Either you go to that your bank and request for it or you get your mtn sim card and check it with your phone.
So if you have the mtn sim card you used in registering that account properly inserted in your phone, you can then go ahead to check your bvn on mtn using that your phone.
The ussd code to check your bvn on mtn with your phone is *565*0#.
Once you dial that code, your Bank Verification Number (BVN) will be displayed to you instantly. It’s an 11 digits number and shouldn’t be shared with anyone.
Note: Checking your bvn on your mtn will cost you about 20 naira, so make sure you have enough airtime before checking it.
After checking your bvn, you can write it down on a piece of paper and keep it somewhere away from unauthorized persons or you can always check it with your phone anytime you need it.
How to check your bvn with mtn if you have more than one bank account.
People have asked this particular question a lot, if you have more than one bank account I’m sure you can relate to this.
The above method of how to check your bvn on mtn will show you your bvn for your Bank if that is the only bank account that you have, but if you have more than one bank account associated with that your sim, your bvn won’t be displayed to you as a result of multiple accounts associated with the phone number.
So if you find yourself in this situation all you need to do is go to that your bank and tell them you want to see your bvn and you’ll get your bvn right away, you can write it down and keep it private incase you need it some other time.
