The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has warned Nigerian People to stay away from a fake app that claims to help link the National Identity Number (NIN) to SIM cards.
NIMC, in a Twitter post on Monday, dissociated itself from the app.
The agency claims the app is run by fraudsters who use it to harvest NIN and Bank Verification Number (BVN).
“The app was not created by NIMC or the Federal Government of Nigeria. It is run by fraudsters who are currently harvesting people’s NINs and BVNs by default,” NIMC said.
The Commission further advised people to protect their data and stop disclosing personal information to unauthorised persons or platforms.
Recall that last week, Press had reported that a mobile app launched by NIMC can be used to link seven SIM cards to one NIN.
This was As stated by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, who spoke during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme.
