You have heard about BVN couple of times, I believe you already know what it means but if you don’t let’s explain what a BVN is.

What is BVN?

A BVN known as Bank Verification Number is an 11-digit number that identifies you. It’s your universal Bank ID, given to you by your Bank.  It is your security identification number which you use for banking transactions. No other person can have the same number of you and you can only have one BVN.  Hence you are expected to keep it safe from the spying eyes of the public.

Before we dive into how to check your BVN Number on your phone, there is a need to answer some important questions.

If I have 3 Bank Accounts, do I need to register for 3 BVN? 

The answer is no, you can only be given one Bank Verification Number which is your unique bank ID. For instance, if you have a Bank Account in GTBank, UBA and Union Bank, you can walk into any one of them to register for a BVN. After registering for example in GTBank you can now go to the second Bank to link the BVN given to you at GTBank to your account. Also, you will repeat this same process to link you BVN to your third Bank account and everything will be synchronised.
