How does Opay account security work?

When you open an opay account, you’re asked for your phone number, a 6-digit password, BVN and an ID, all these is to ensure you’re the one operating the account and to avoid identity theft.

After your account is created, you can always use your phone number and your 6-digit password to login, and in the case that you forget your password, you can easily reset it after getting an OTP to the phone number linked to the account.

So what if you now lost the SIM card linked to your account and can’t get the OTP?

Well, in this case there are few things you can do to help safeguard your account, your money and recover your account.

Can I recover my Opay account if I’ve lost both my SIM card and phone? Yes, you can recover your Opay account if you’ve lost both your phone and your SIM, with the help of opay customer service and your mobile service provider.

Can i login to my Opay without a SIM card and OTP? If you’ve changed your phone, or you forgot your password, you’ll need the SIM card that has the phone number associated with your account to login to Opay and receive OTPs.

How To Recover Opay Account And Get OTP

Follow the below steps.

1. Reach out to opay support team

If you lost your smartphone along with the SIM, try and contact opay support as soon as possible to lock your account in order to safeguard your funds and protect your account from unauthorized access.

Opay official customer service Email address is: [email protected].

The complete opay customer service information can be found on their website via https://www.opayweb.com/contact-us/.

If you cant reach out to Opay immediately, dial *955*131# using any phone avaliable to you to block debit transactions from happening on your account. you’ll be required to provide your account number as well as your Opay transaction PIN.

Note: I recommend you get in touch with Opay customer service team on either Twitter or Facebook and explain to them that you lost your SIM card, they may help you get it back without needing to retrieve the SIM card.
