How to Check BVN – Bank Verification Number 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.

By the way, the BVN consists of 11 digits.
