How You Can Correct and Update your BVN Information

In this article, I will be sharing with you "How You Can Correct and Update your BVN Information", but first of all, I believe we all know what a BVN is, what it means and its purpose? then if not;

BVN means Bank Verification Number which is a biometric identification system introduced by the CBN (Central Bank of Nigeria) to curb and reduce illegal banking transactions in Nigeria. It is a modern security measure in line with the Central Bank of Nigeria Act 1958 to reduce fraud in the banking system.

How You Can Correct and Update your BVN Information

The system works by recording your fingerprints and a facial photograph of the client along with your full details.

The CBN has implemented and enforced the BVN in such a way that if you happen to have multiple bank accounts, the BVN will be linked with all the accounts making it as one under the system with records of your day to day transactions on it. And if you also happen not to have the BVN in place you won't be able to make transactions from your bank account either single or multiple.

As the Image above implies that, to check your BVN number dial *565*0# on all networks, just in case you do not know it, remember or in need of it for an emergency.

Now back to the main body of this article which is "How You Can Correct and Update your BVN Information".

***Note that you as an individual can't have access to your BVN database as CBN (Central Bank of Nigeria) has made it known to the public that only the Commercial Banks are given access to the BVN database of their customers.
