The Bank Verification Number commonly called BVN is a biometric identification system implemented by the Central Bank of Nigeria to curb or reduce illegal banking transactions in Nigeria.

It is highly needed in some cases such as opening a bank account (although, some banks do not require bvn number to be opened), requesting a loan, some jobs require your BVN before they can pay you to prove that you are the owner of your account and to register NIMC. You should never disclose your bvn to anyone because it would put you at a risk of your money in the bank getting stolen.

Bank verification number is only issued to those who are 18 year and older in Nigeria.

The BVN protects the customers’ bank accounts and account details from unauthorized access.

The BVN is uniquely used to verify the identity of each banks’ customer. You do not need more than one BVN because your BVN is linked to all your accounts and anyone that is found with more than one BVN is highly suspected to be a criminal.

The BVN or Bank verification number is an 11 digit number that is unique to each individual, but the same across all bank institutions for the same individual. To own and operate a banking account in Nigeria, you must first have a bank verification number.

To register for your BVN, you will require the biometric detail which include the fingerprint of your ten fingers and as well as your facial image.

As a customer your BVN is a means of identification across all banks in Nigeria.
