How to Check My BVN Online

How to Check My BVN Online – Bank Verification Number (BVN) is an 11-digit number that serves as a person’s universal ID in all banks or financial institutions within Nigeria.

The BVN was introduced in Nigeria in February 2014 after the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) implemented its cashless policy. One of the major reasons why the BVN was introduced is to curb all forms of theft and financial fraud. In addition to curbing fraud, your BVN helps you carry out money transactions and other banking operations.Information Guide Nigeria

In an official statement released by the CBN concerning the BVN, they said: “Identity theft and fraudulent transactions have become a menace to the global banking system in recent times. In order to ensure that the trust relationship in the Nigerian banking system is not undermined, the Central Bank of Nigeria in collaboration with all Nigerian Banks launched the Bank Verification Number (BVN) project on February 14, 2014. The BVN uniquely identifies every customer across the Nigerian banking industry using biometric details. It is a requirement for operating a Bank account in Nigeria as no withdrawal shall be made on accounts without validated BVN (customers in diaspora accounts were exempted until January 31, 2016)

In general, it’s safe to say that the BVN was initiated by the CBN in order to ensure security, transparency, and easy assessment of data in accordance with best practices in developed countries.MTN True Talk; How to Migrate to MTN True Talk
