With the increasing incidents of compromise on conventional security systems (password and PIN), there is a high demand for greater security on access to sensitive or personal information in the Banking system.

In light of this, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) directed that all account holders must enrol for a Bank Verification Number (BVN), which gives each Bank customer a unique identity across the Nigerian Banking industry and can be used for easy identification and verification at Point of Banking operations. The CBN further directed that effective November 1, 2015, all bank accounts without BVN details should be restricted from banking transactions, pending when the account holder registers for a BVN or links a BVN to their account.

Customers can now link their Bank Verification Number (BVN) obtained from any other Nigerian Bank to their GTBank account without visiting a GTBank branch via Internet Banking platform, the Bank’s Corporate website, SMS, 737 BVN linker or any GTBank ATM nationwide.
