So how can I link my GLO phone number to my NIN?

To prevent your GLO line from being blocked by NCC follow the SMS format below

Simply send “UPDATENIN, NIN, First name, Last name” to 109



UPDATENIN 19926745809 Adekunle Areola and send to 109

Note: Compose this information from Text Message and send to 109

You would receive a message:

“Dear esteemed customer, your NIN has been successfully received”, this is an acknowledgement that your NIN has been submitted. You’ll be updated


If you have more than one GLO line, send the same message to 109 on the line you want to link with your NIN.

Why You Need To Take Action Immediately

It’s very important to link your NIN to your telecom line because MTN, Airtel, Glo, and others have been directed by the NCC to block lines without NIN as the day for that elapsed on March 31, 2022

The disclosure was made on Twitter by the Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, Bashir Ahmad

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has given telecommunications operators (MTN, Glo, Airtel, 9Mobile and others) in the country two weeks to block all SIM cards that are not registered with the National Identity Numbers (NIN), the Commission has said in a statement,” he tweeted.

NCC speaks:

Shedding more light on the new directive, Director of Public Affairs at NCC Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde explained that the decision was to consolidate the achievements of 2019 SIM registration audit and improve the performance and sanity of the sector.

In a statement he said:

“Following the earlier directive on the suspension of new SIM registration by network operators, the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Ibrahim (Pantami) convened an urgent meeting of key stakeholders in the Communications industry on Monday, December 14, 2020.

NIN-SIM Security Tips:

Fraudsters are likely to explore the loopholes in the ongoing NIN-SIM registration, we urge you to be careful on the code you dial on your line.

Customer support of GLO will never ask for your details via phone call or text message.

Don’t click on link or URL you are not familiar with.
