How To Check BVN On Airtel

The Bank Verification Number (BVN) is usually an 11-digit number, and of which many people usually find it difficult to remember offhand. If you have ever visited the bank or been in any situation that demands your BVN but you don’t have it offhand, then you can understand how frustrating it usually is. 

However, as long as you have your mobile phone with the SIM card you used to register your BVN, you may not always have to worry, as you can easily check your BVN using your phone. Whether you are using Airtel, MTN, GLO, or any network in Nigeria; there is a way to check your BVN anytime you need it. But you must use that particular SIM card that is linked to your BVN or that you used to register your BVN.

So, for those using Airtel Network, we are going to show you a simple guide on how to check BVN on Airtel, anytime you need it.

It would be nice to note that checking your BVN on Airtel or any network usually costs a service fee of about N30 or N50 airtime. So, before you check your BVN on your phone, you should make sure you have up to N30 or N50 airtime in your SIM card.

Since it usually costs a fee to check BVN on Airtel or other networks, you may wonder why people cannot just save their BVN on their phone so that they won’t have to waste the little service fee anytime they want to check their BVN. 

The reason behind this is that many people don’t always like to save their BVN on their phone, because of fear of Fraud. They are always afraid that fraudsters may use their BVN to steal their money from their Bank account if they lose their phone in which they saved the BVN. 

However, I may not strongly justify that fraudsters can easily use your BVN alone to steal your money; I would say it’s impossible or very difficult. For fraudsters to steal your money, they need other sensitive details of your bank account, not only your BVN.
