Since we are on the topic of BVN it is worth noting that it should be kept a secret. Even though giving someone your BVN does not guarantee they can steal your funds.

It is still very possible that they will use the BVN to get very important information about you and your finances.

Some of the information you may expose when sharing your BVN with anyone or any organization includes but is not limited to:

  • The current balance of all your accounts
  • Your credit scores
  • Your bank accounts (Name and Account Numbers)
  • Your current loans with any bank or microfinance institutions

And more…

So it’s advisable to store your BVN in a place only you have access to, and only share when it’s very important and most especially with people or companies you trust.
