Limitations of AccessMoney

Mobile Banking Watch (MBW) tested the mobile money on MTN, but failed consistently, saying “try again…”
But the registration was smooth on Airtel line, MBW believes that since the mobile money is powered by Airtel, it (airtel) owns the exclusive network-provider right.

Security tips for AccessMoney Users

  1. Never give your PIN to a third party.
    2. Since you will be using the service on your mobile phone, it is not advisable to store your accessmoney PIN on your device in case of lost or theft.
    3. Promptly report a lost phone which contains your PIN to the nearest Access Bank branch(the bank isn’t a phone finder) so that the service would be blocked to bar intruder from having access to your wallet.
    4. Never give your financial details to a third party claiming to be the representative of Access Bank, instead contact the customer care desk at any branch of the bank for clarification.
