Globacom subscribers situated in the Benin Republic are now able to recharge their airtime without the use of recharge cards. This is due to the company introducing an E-top up service.
Femi Ogunlus, Head of Glomobile Benin, stated that, “Subscribers wishing to use the electronic airtime recharge option should dial *152#. A secret code is then subsequently sent to the subscriber’s phone.”
By utilising this code, subscribers can top up their credit without revealing their personal telephone number to a vendor. According to Ogunlus, “Citizens are extremely security conscious and hold the privacy of their personal identity, phone number, or any other personal details of high importance.”
