This tutorial will walk you through the process of linking your phone number with your BVN. It is now much simpler to link your Bank Verification Number (BVN) to your mobile phone number as a result of collaborative efforts by Nigerian banks and mobile communication firms. The USSD code that is used to link the BVN is different for each individual bank. The approach that we are going to discuss today is one that is compatible with all of the mobile networks that are available in Nigeria, including MTN, 9mobile, Airtel, and Glo. Make certain that the phone number that is linked to your bank account is the same as the one that is being used to link your BVN before you move forward with this process. If you used a different phone number, the process would not be successful.
Those individuals who already possess a BVN number and wish to link to other banks will find this material to be beneficial.
