What is Bank Verification Number (BVN)?
In all commercial banks in Nigeria, your Bank Verification Number serves as your universal ID. To combat illicit banking, the Central Bank of Nigeria introduced a Biometric Identification System within the industry. This is required to open a bank account in Nigeria because no withdrawals are permitted without a valid BVN (customers in diaspora accounts were exempted till January 31, 2016). Most customers have one or two things they want to alter or update on their BVN account information, such as their phone number, their name, or their date of birth, so we’ll show you how to do it. I’ve lost my phone number, which is linked to my BVN, for the past two years, and I didn’t get my sim card back in time because I was out of the country for more than a year. But only to return to the nation, where my phone number is being used by someone else. When I called my bank and Glo telecom, I was informed that I needed to change the phone number associated with my BVN.
