How to Check your Bank Verification Number - BVN on Phone

Bank Verification Number- BVN is an initiative of the CBN to ensure transparency, security and easy assessment of data in accordance with best practices in developed countries. 

In my own opinion, I love the whole idea except for the fact that i now have Eleven (11) digits more to memorize. Well, that won't be a problem since we can now get the BVN Number anytime through our mobile phone even without Internet connection.

How To Check Your BVN via Mobile Phone

To Check your Bank Verification Number on your mobile phone, simply dial *565*0# from that particular line you used for registration at the bank.  

Some banks have also created a dedicated shortcode to allow customers check their BVN on their mobile phone on Glo, MTN, Airtel or any other network in Nigeria:

GTBank Code for checking BVN

GTBank customers can dial *737*6*1# to check BVN

.....Other banks will be updated soon

Try it and relay your feedback to the comments section. Enjoy!

If you are yet to do your BVN, hurry before the deadline elapses.
