How To Check Bvn On 9mobile[With Protection Tips]

Since the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) implemented a single Biometric Identification System in 2014, the Biometric Verification Number (BVN) has become an extremely crucial code in our day-to-day banking. 

BVN is now required to open bank accounts, withdraw cash, register for federal programs, and obtain a statutory government ID, among other things. However, most people do not know how to check their BVN on their sim cards. Today we’ll be teaching how to check your BVN on 9mobile.

How To Check BVN On 9mobile

Before we proceed, please note that the Bank verification number (BVN) is the key to all your financial details. Don’t give anyone access to it, and ensure you don’t allow it to fall into the wrong hands.

All you need to check your BVN is a simple code, and the method to check your BVN on 9mobile doesn’t require any internet connection. All you need is a phone that has network connectivity to 9mobile service.

Here’s how to check your BVN on 9mobile

  • Open the dialer app on your phone. You don’t need this process if you’re using a button phone.
  • Dial *565*0# and click send
  • Your 11-digit bank verification number will appear on the screen.

However, please note that there’s a ₦20 charge for checking your BVN on 9mobile. Every time you dial *565*0#, ₦20 will be deducted from your account balance. You can copy the BVN and keep it somewhere safe to avoid paying ₦20 anytime you need your BVN.

Tips On How To Protect My BVN

As I said, the Bank Verification Number (BVN) is linked to all your financial details. If it falls into the wrong hands, it can be used to siphon money away from your account; it can even be used to borrow money from the wrong people, who might ruin your financial credit.

Here are tips you can use to protect your BVN

1. Make Sure Your Phone Is Password Protected

Ensure your phone has a pin or password before anyone can use it. Do not leave your phone lying around without being locked. 

With just a simple USSD code, your BVN could be visible, and if it falls into the wrong hands, it might cause problems for you.

2. Make Sure Your Sim Card Is Password Protected

Make sure you put a password on your sim card as well. Your phone shouldn’t be the only thing that should be passworded. 

If you misplace your phone or get stolen, your sim card will not be accessible even if it’s inserted into another phone.

3. Don’t Write Your BVN On A Paper

Most people want to avoid the ₦20 charge and write it down on paper. This act is wrong and can lead your BVN to the wrong hands.

Instead of writing it on paper, you can save it on your phone’s notepad or download a notepad app to put in a password.
