Can Your Bank Account Be Hacked With Your BVN Number? Find Out The Answer

There is this issue or let me say confusion trending on social media as to whether your bank account can be hacked through your BVN". I want to address this confusion with my little research on the matter and also give a categorical warning to those giving out their BVN to untrusted sites and applications. Because in a country like this where everyone is looking for a way to survive we might end up falling for scam because of greed for money or ignorance.



But before we start deliberating on that I would love everyone to know the meaning of BVN i.e. what BVN is. 

What is BVN?πŸ‘‡

The abbreviation BVN stands for Bank Verification Number. It is used as a number to control all your accounts and prevent fraud. 



Can One's Account Be Hacked With BVN ?πŸ‘‡


The answer is “Yes“. You can be hacked with your BVN. In fact, once hackers know your BVN they have the chance to withdraw your funds without you consenting to it. That is why banks warn against displaying or giving out BVN to untrusted people or phishing websites.
Giving out your BVN means you've given out access to your bank details and as such the organization or hacker can easily view your banking information. I've also listed below the information hackers or organizations get when they get hold of your bank verification number. 


Below are the Information hackers get with your BVN:
πŸ‘‰Account number

πŸ‘‰Phone number

πŸ‘‰Date Of Birth

πŸ‘‰Security Question and Answer


πŸ‘‰ Your Bank Account email address

With the information above they can easily change your account pin and withdraw all your money. So always be guided while pasting your BVN anywhere to avoid having regrets later. Though there are certain basic knowledge you should have of a website before dropping your BVN. The most essential knowledge is whether the site you're about to drop something as sensitive as BVN has SSL security on it, this is to ensure that your information isn't been monitored or compromised by a third party. 
Also ensure that the website requesting for your BVN is reputable in the country or is a registered company in the country. Like few days ago I shared something concerning StanChart Application giveaway of N2000 and some people were sceptical because it requires BVN... Don't get me wrong it's good to be sceptical with things as sensitive as BVN but it is also worthy to note that StanChart is a registered bank in Nigeria and it's full name is Standard Chartered Bank, you can research about them on Google. 





That's all you need to know about BVN safety and whether your bank account balance can be jeopardized with the exposure of your BVN to hackers or scammers. Be safe!

Also feel free to drop a comment as to your ideas about this and questions πŸ˜‰

Last Updated: Nov. 30, 2019 

Good day guys it's a bright new day, and I've decided to share with you a wonderful idea that will surely without reasonable doubt be of interest to you; what is this you might ask? I've discovered an application that pays you cash for your airtime. It's wonderful right? Yes and this application is original and genuine because before it was posted here the rating on Google Playstore was checked and it was more than average. So without wasting much time  let's move to how to use it and why it should be used.
We can't just talk about the feature of an application without mentioning the name of the application, this application is called Airtime Flip and its primary use is to help those with airtime but no cash to get cash in place of their airtime, hassle free and quickly without having to sell the airtime manually.

Why you should try this Application✓

⟹ Hassle free; using this application is very easy, right from the initial setup  upto the the transaction level.

⟹ Transparency: this application is very transparent and the support is superb and quick to respond, and the chances you will lose your airtime is really slim.

⟹ Simple GUI: GUI means graphic user interface, now what I mean is that Airtime Flip application is very easy to use and easy to understand there are guides to help you get running and making money with your airtime.

⟹ Good rating on playstore; you know most bad apps get bad review on playstore and that is usually a tell tale sign that such an application is fraudulent or a wag. Below are  screenshots of the reviews the app has on Google playstore,(Note) not


⟹ Quickness to attend to orders; this application is good because they attend to orders very quickly, I placed an order and within 2hours I got a confirmation mail asking me to send the airtime for the slight cash equivalent.(charges apply) below is the screenshot of the mail I got not long after I applied
But like every good thing it has a number of disadvantages which are for this app enormous I must say~~

Disadvantages(Cons) of Airtime Flip - Airtime to cash Application

⟹ The service charge attached to every transaction is terrible, I mean very high; for MTN Nigeria transactions it's 19%, while Glo it's as big as 35% of your airtime which will result to a serious loss, and on this particular service charge the company or the app owners are rigid about it, they claim it's the lowest in Nigeria.


  ⟹The application is a bit unpopular, i.e. it is still not yet popular it has just 1000+ downloads on playstore.


Notwithstanding the disadvantages and the advantages this application is something unique,  their services no doubt will help alleviate the pain people feel when they mistakenly buy excess airtime from their bank account, you know how this works right?

Simply click on this link to download the app HERE

My Take on this App ✓✓✓✓ it's a go go .

How to Convert Airtime to Money on the Airtime flip app

⟹ After installing the application, launch the app and click on register, then you fill your details as requested..

⟹ after registration, login with the details you entered while registering such as your phone number and password and you will be shown the main dashboard
All you have to do to place an order is to choose the network you want to use and then you will be shown the % percentage they will collect for such a transaction, input amount, and click submit. Chikena you are done, after a while you will get a mail asking you to transfer the airtime to a specified number, simply transfer the amount after confirming the acct details you sent them as that will be attached in the mail showing the order confirmation... Transfer the airtime to your phone and wait some hours for the money... It will be sent to your bank acct.

Note: take note of the order code Incase there are issues, you simply contact them using their support WhatsApp number.

Disclaimer: Airtime Flip - Airtime to cash Application is not in anyway owned or controlled by Gistrealz.
Usage of the app on this note therefore is fully at the users risk(stated above too are the Cons of the application)
So use at your own risk!

Top 5 Android Application Stores That are Similar to Playstore

Just like other google products, Google Playstore has dominated the Android appstore world and also in a way hindered most other appstores from seeing the light or been popular. This is so because most devices are Android and Google installs all their services in every Android phone and makes available only but Playstore as the only app store in all Android devices. This particular act has given Google Playstore an age over all other Android Application Stores.

Top 5 Google Playstore Alternatives

 Apkpure;



Apkpure is the second best Android app store after google playstore and for some people it is the best because it has almost all the applications google playstore has and it's 100% virus free which means apps downloaded from Apkpure are safe and sound.

You can also download Apkpure Android application from their website and easily downloads and update your Android apps from there.  You can also download applications from their official website by clicking HERE

Aptoide;

As long as Android Application store is concerned, Aptoide can't be excluded because it's an Android app store very similar to Apkpure, the only thing that made it make the second in my list is that it's doesn't have all the applications Apkpure or playstore has. But it's a wonderful app store very fast and efficient and you can also download their Android application for easy update of you Applications and downloading of games and other wonderful apps.

Apkmirror is another Android application stores that competes seriously with Google Playstore and if your device doesn't have google playstore you can comfortably fall back to apkmirror and still get an experience close to what you would have while using playstore. Apkmirror has lots of applications and another wonderful thing is that from reports and experience, they don't have malware applications so it's 100% safe downloading from Apkmirror.

9apps:

Another wonderful Android application store is 9apps. The app store has thousands of Android Applications available for download and it gets updated on a daily basis. Another wonderful feature of this app store is the notification you get when your apps needs to be updated and also it's wonderful applications, though in terms of App safety I can't guarantee that because I've once downloaded an application from 9apps that portrayed malware signs. Aside from the fear of malware 9apps is a great Android Application store and an alternative to Google Playstore. Click HERE to access 9apps

Apkmonk;

When it comes to Android applications store you can count on apkmonk because of the availability of numerous applications and the recognition overall as one of the best Android application stores, any one looking for Google playstore alternative shouldn't look far away because apkmonk has got him or her covered.
