In case you don’t know how to check your BVN Number, this is how.

The Central Bank of Nigeria already made it known to the public that only the Commercial Banks are given access to the BVN database of their customers.

As a result, if you made any mistake during the registration of your Bank Verification Number, you can now correct, update or change the provided details entirely.

How to Correct and Update BVN Details

To update your BVN details, kindly visit and lodge a complaint at the bank branch where you registered.
