For those on mobile banking platform with your enrolled bank transaction number, there is need to put a pin on your phone, your mobile banking number otherwise your account can be hacked with all hard-earned saving, swept all out within some few secs this is even more dangerous when you lose your phone. Now in other to secure your money in your bank account, kindly follow this simple step below.
- Go to your phone “setting”
- Then, go to location and security on your phone, go to the sim card lock
- Click on lock sim card now, then enters your mobile number default sim card pin.
For MTN users type “00000” for airtel users type “1111” for 9moblie users type “0000” for Glo users type ‘0000″.
After entering the mobile network default pin, under it you will see Change sim pin, click on it to change to your unique 4 digits pin, then confirm your 4 digits pin by entering it again and you are done.
So anytime you ‘’On’’ your phone you will be prompted to enter your SIM CARD PIN just as you will be prompted to enter your phone lock PIN or draw your PATTERN each time you ‘’START’’ (ON) your phone.
With the ACTIVATION OF SIM LOCK on your phone, your money can never be withdrawn from your bank account through your SIM because your SIM will be useless in their hands since it is blocked and you will not be under tension to go and block or retrieve your stolen SIM.
