Conclusion

When i tried introducing this platform to some friends, there appreciated the idea and creativity from the CEO of Abeg’s app, and immediately downloaded the app.

Almost all of them did not go beyond where the BVN number was required because there were all afraid of inputting their BVN  on any online platform.

However, you may be having the same fear due to the fact that there is a high level of cybercrime in Nigeria and you don’t want to risk your banking information especially your BVN.

I understand with you, but i can boldly say that Abeg and Abeg app is totally safe to use, owing to the fact that it is duly registered and the owner’s information isn’t private, this way if anything goes wrong he can easily be traced and arrested.
