Glo Easyshare Transfer Code
To transfer credit, dial *131*Recipient’s Phone Number*amount to be transferred*Password#.
E.g If your password is 11223 and you want to transfer N95 to a customer with the phone Number 08155570458, then dial *131*08155531110*95*11223#.
Once the transfer is complete, you will be notified via text message. The default password is 00000.
How to Change Glo EasyShare default password for good!
The password “00000” has been assigned to all Glo users by default. Though you can continue to use the default password to complete your airtime/data sharing transactions, nonetheless, we recommend that you change it to be on the safe side.
To change your Glo EasyShare Password, dial *132*00000*new pin*repeat new pin#. E.g If you want to use 1122 as your pin/password, enter *132*00000*1122*1122#. Note, any four or five digit number may be used as Glo Easyshare transaction pin.
If you’ve set your unique pin for Glo EasyShare, but you’re not comfortable with the setup. You can request a change by dialing the code: *132*old pin*new pin*new pin#.
You will receive a message stating that the pin reset was successful upon request.
However, there are times that we forget our Glo EasyShare Password, and you are well aware that Glo EasyShare is inaccessible without your password. In this case, the only remaining option is to call Glo customer service at (300) and request a pin reset.
Glo Data share & Gifting
Just like MTN Share and Airtel Me2U, Glo offers users the ability to directly share and gift data bundles to their friends, family, and loved ones. Glo Easyshare discussed above primarily facilitates airtime gifts, whereas Data Gifting is specifically designed for data bundle gifting, and Glo Data sharing is tailored for data bundle pairing. Just as two Bluetooth devices can pair with each other, Glo allows data bundles to be paired as long as the paired number is GLO.
You can share data with your loved ones via the Glo cafe app, or the USSD CODE method. However, using the GLO Data Share USSD code, you can add, remove, and check the list of people who are currently sharing in your data subscription plan.
