The BVN uses a biometric technology, not just a signature to register all financial clients in the Central bank of Nigeria financial system or local banks’ system. It is a very convenient way of keeping track of customers, as a lot of people cannot write themselves and it is much safer for account owners in case of fraud.
The Bank Verification system uses physical features for registration. Since every person has their own unique features, such as fingerprints and look, it is a very secure way of ensuring the privacy of each client.
After the registration, these unique characteristics can be used to identify the person. The bank can also track all the customers’ transactions across the country to prevent any fraudulent attack. The service is available 24/7.
