Why we need your BVN
To provide you with more value, we're requesting your BVN to validate your date of birth, legal name, and phone number.
We cross-check this information against the CBN database to ensure that the information you have provided is accurate and to further protect you from Identity Theft and Fraud.
Your BVN also gives you access to a higher transaction limit of NGN 200,000 daily and a maximum account balance of NGN 300,000. We take your security very seriously and so will not store any information that may be an infringement on your privacy.
What this means is that we will not have access to your other bank accounts or financial history. Your information is safe with us.
Please note that you can ONLY verify your own name and BVN. Submission of any BVNs or credentials that are not your own will be classed as fraud and liable to a criminal investigation.
If your BVN setup is failing, you might get this error message:
