The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) launched the VNIN feature in Nigeria on the 1st of October, 2022, as part of its Mobile Web Services platform, to provide a more secure and convenient way for Nigerians to verify their identities.

The Virtual National Identity Number (VNIN) is a 16-digit set of alphanumeric characters that can be used for identity verification in Nigeria without revealing an individual’s original National Identity Number (NIN).

As a leading identity verification and background screening company in Nigeria, Seamfix Verify also launched its VNIN service, which aims to streamline the identity verification process and enhance security for both individuals and businesses.


How does the VNIN Service work?

Seamfix Verify’s VNIN service leverages the NIMC’s mobile web services app to generate a VNIN for individuals. This VNIN can then be used to verify an individual’s identity during various transactions without revealing their original NIN.

To use the VNIN service, individuals need to download NIMC’s Mobile Web Service app and complete their registration with the NIMC. Once their registration is complete, they can proceed to use the VNIN in spaces where such information is required.
