Glo NIN Link: Latest Correct Way to Connect

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) mandates linking your National Identity Number (NIN) to your mobile phone lines, including Glo, for security and identification purposes. If you haven’t yet linked your NIN, here’s a guide specifically targeted at Glo customers.

How to Link Your NIN to Your Glo SIM

Glo offers several easy ways to complete this process:

  1. USSD Code:
    • Dial *109*NIN# from your Glo line (replace NIN with your actual 11-digit NIN).
    • Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the linking process.
  2. SMS:
    • Send “UPDATENIN NIN FirstName LastName” to 109 from your Glo line. Replace the placeholders with your actual information.
  3. Glo hsi Portal
    • Ensure you’re using a device connected to your Glo line.
    • Visit the Glo hsi portal:
    • Log in or create an account using your Glo number.
    • Look for the “NIN Update” or similar section and follow instructions.
  4. Visiting a Glo Outlet
    • Locate a Glo World store or Glo Zone near you.
    • A customer service representative will assist you with the linking process.

Important Reminders:

  • Have Your NIN Handy: Ensure you have your National Identity Number accessible before you start the process.
  • Confirmation: Expect a confirmation message from Glo once the linking is successful.
  • Deadline Compliance: Avoid having your Glo line disconnected by linking your NIN before any government-specified deadlines.

What if I’m Outside of Nigeria?

If you’re a Glo subscriber currently outside of Nigeria, you can link your NIN by:

  • Diaspora NIN Linking: Send an email to requesting to link your NIN and include the following information:
    • Diaspora NIN linking (in the subject line)
    • Full Name
    • Glo Phone Number
    • NIN
    • Valid proof of Nigerian identity (e.g., international passport with Nigerian visa)


Understanding how to execute a Glo NIN link is essential to comply with NCC regulations and enjoy uninterrupted Glo services. By using one of the convenient methods Glo provides, you can easily complete this important process.
