The first and the foremost thing that you should always consider while downloading up the apps or the tools on your Android device is that you always go for the safe places to download up these sort of things and not go for any kind of unknown sources that you probably are not sure about the reliability. Mostly the trojans come only with those apps which have been downloaded from other sources rather than the well known safe sources like Play Store on Android etc. These infected files from the Unknown sources could combine with them the trojans which could then reach up your device!

#2 Read up the people

The people do suggest about the working and the quality of the apps or anything else by reviewing them after the usage. To be damn sure about how the app you are going to download look forward to the reviews and in case if you notice up that the particular app is not having the good reviews and many of the people are saying a lot’s bad about it’s working then please never ever go for it rather chose to download it from any other reliable source maybe it could be generating the good reviews!

There are number of app stores arising these days and all these tend to be the safe way for downloading the amazing new apps but let me tell you that all these apps could not overtake the security levels and the reliability levels of your stock official app store like Google play Store for Android or others for other devices.

All You Need to Know About Verve Paycode - Cardless ATM Withdrawals and POS Payments

All You Need to Know About Verve Paycode - Cardless ATM Withdrawals and POS Payments

Life is more simple and easy day by day as a result of technology and we need to stay up-to-date with new emerging technologies. I'm happy to inform you that there is a new way in Nigeria to withdraw your money from the ATM machine without your debit card being physically present. It sounded like a big joke at first until I personally confirmed it.

You know how it feels when you urgently need cash, but your ATM card is at home; there’s money in your account, but you can’t withdraw it because you need an ATM card.

Nigeria’s largest payment processing company - Interswitch, has launched "Verve World", an app  which enables cardholders to store all their payment options and to carry out everyday transactions without physically using their cards. You can now withdraw the cash in your account without using an ATM card, all you need is a Verve Paycode.

Verve Paycode is a secure code that can be generated from cards stored in your eWallet (Verve eCash). Verve eWallet can securely store any card from any Bank.

Verve eCash is a virtual payment card that allows you to transact in every way you would with a physical card. With eCash, you no longer need card number, OTP, CVV2 or expiry date to complete your online transactions. Recharge, Pay bills, Transfer funds and even withdraw cash from an ATM or make POS payments directly from your eCash. 

 Download Verve World app from the link below to get started.
MW15_ANDR MW15_BBRY MW15_APPL

Login/Registration Process
Open the Verve World installed app, login with an existing Interswitch account if you have an account with Interswitch before and if not, choose Sign UP and fill the necessary detail, add the details of your ATM card on to the Verve World App and proceed.

After successful registration, you should get this notification and an accompanying email from the Verve International team with “Welcome to Verve eCash” in the subject line. 

How to Fund Your Verve eCash
Click the button that says ‘Fund my eCash’. On the next screen, you will be required to enter the amount you want to withdraw.



Even after adding a card to the application, you may have to input your details again in the “Payment Card” option


How to Generate Actual Verve Paycode
After funding the eCash, you will get a notification to that effect. Under every page, there is the eWALLET, 1-TOUCH and PAYCODE options, click on “PAYCODE” to generate.

After selecting PAYCODE, the below page will be displayed.

In selecting a channel, there is the option of ATM, POS or Paypoint Agent. Choose ATM as it is our case study for this post.

In selecting a payment card, choose your already funded Verve eCash or select from the stored Cards.

The cash-out pin is the one you are going to input in the ATM and your card pin is, of course, your personal card pin.

Important Notice
After the last procedure described above, you should be able to use your cashout pin in any ATM unless;
  • You have insufficient balance in your account.
  • You do not have a token– physical or software –and so cannot use the card online.
  • There is not sufficient internet connectivity.
AND;
  • Verve Paycode works for any bank card as long as it’s Verve, Visa or Mastercard
  • Multiple cards can be added to the application
  • Cardless ATM Withdrawals DOES NOT work on every bank’s ATM (that is the machine).
  • The Machine that I know, are: ATMs belonging to Zenith Bank, Stanbic IBTC Bank, Guaranty Trust Bank and Fidelity Bank are compatible with the Verve World App and Verve Paycode.
If all the above conditions have been satisfied, then you are good to go.
Now using the ATM is the really tricky part and seems to be where most people are stuck. Most ATMs have the options of cardless operation, to be sure, ask the orderlies around.
Or walk up to any one of them and press the “ENTER” key multiple times. It should display the option.

How to Withdraw from the ATM
GTBank ATM has already been used for the experiment, all you need is to follow the below instruction according.

If you look closely at the display above, it gives the instructions on performing Cardless Transactions; that is, using the ATM to withdraw without ATM card. Even though the instruction makes it easier, some ATMs do not spell it out, so just press the “ENTER” button on the keypad twice, and if it does not still bring out the option, then the machine is probably not configured for Cardless Transactions.

The next screen after pressing the “ENTER” key will be self-explanatory as the tag of your selection will include Quickteller.  The Verve World App, Verve Paycode and Quickteller are all products of Interswitch, so they are in one family.

After selecting the Quickteller option, this screen comes up and prompts you to enter the already generated code, then the ATM proceeds to produce the exact amount of cash that was entered when generating the Verve Paycode on the Verve World. Simple as that.

At a Stanbic IBTC ATM, press zero “0” on the keypad to be taken to a page that has “Quickteller Cashout” written on it and the machine will give a prompt for the already generated Verve Paycode.  

Zenith Bank ATMs have the same procedure, but you have to press the enter key to access “Quickteller Cashout” option, and input your Verve Paycode

Note: It includes a N100 surcharge at cashout.

Also Note:
To make every thing simply. You can generate a Paycode by simply dialing *322*8*Amount#. You don't need to have a smartphone or internet access

Airtel Weekend Plan Still Remains The Best Dataplan Ever - Get 1GB For Just N100

Airtel Weekend Plan Still Remains The Best Dataplan Ever - Get 1GB For Just N100

No matter how stressful the week has been, the weekend has come and let the good things happen. Happy Weekend guys.

In one of my recent posts on Best and affordable Data Plans, I made mention of the Airtel weekend plan of 1GB for N100 there, just to remind people that the plan is still active, but I wondered why people are making comments that the Airtel weekend plan is no more working. 

It seems lots of you guys taught that Airtel weekend is no more working, while the plan is still active and working fine, the price of it is still N100 for 1GB, even the data deduction of this weekend bundle is very normal compared to other Airtel data plans.
 
If the Airtel network is good in your locality and you have better things to do with data bundle during the weekend, like watching live matches or movies, heavy downloading, upgrading/updating the system and Smartphones. The subscription is still recommended for you.

Hope your old Airtel sim is still with you? 
You can still enjoy Airtel weekend plan of 1GB for N100. Simply dial *474*1# to activate the offer.
Dial *140# to check your remaining data.
 
Hope you remember that you can get 7GB for just N700 every weekend, with the Airtel Weekend Bundle.


Airtel only allows you to subscribe once pay day, which means that you can only get 1GB per day
» The gigabytes can be accumulated till the weekend
» The more you subscribe, the more the expiry date extends
You can accumulate Airtel weekend plan to get 7GB by subscribing to this plan every day. That is, from Sunday to Saturday, i.e getting 1GB every day with N100. Start using your 7GB data for anything during the weekend without fearing of exhausting the data.

Remember: Not all Airtel SIMs supported, check out this link for the hints to get the supported SIMs:

5 Good Reasons to Host Your Website in Nigeria

5 Good Reasons to Host Your Website in Nigeria

local hosting

Over 98% of Nigerian web hosts use overseas servers to host their customer’s sites or simply resell hosting from other foreign webhosts. These companies should not be wrongly thought to be local Webhosting companies because their servers are located outside Nigeria.
Local Web Hosting means servers that are located locally in the country and also have customer support locally.
These are some reasons to consider locally based hosting:
  1. SPEED
Local hosting allows your website run up to 3 times faster than websites hosted overseas due to ultralow latency. It is essential for you to know your business’ needs before taking a decision between hosting locally or foreign. Latency is better and faster when you host locally because local traffic is routed locally through the Internet Exchange Point of Nigeria.

  1. PRICING
One of the problems of hosting overseas currently is the economic recession in the country  and the devaluation of the Naira i.e. the absurd increase in the exchange rate which has resulted in paying as much as 4 times extra for the same service compared to 12 months ago. Hosting locally takes care of this problem as you pay less because local hosting is not really influenced by fluctuations in exchange rate.

  1. DATA PRIVACY LAWS
To know where your information and client data is kept is very important, and the data privacy laws of the country where your data is being hosted. To avoid the complexity of international Laws, once important information is being hosted outside the country the Laws of the land no longer apply; for example, if you host your data with an international service provider and they were to be involved in a case of national security and had to shut down because of a motion against them, you might lose access to your data because the laws of the hosting country will be applied against you.

  1. BOOST LOCAL ECONOMY
Records show that Nigeria loses billions yearly from hosting abroad. Hosting locally allows you help grow the economy and also enables local hosting companies to export services and in turn generate income for the country.

  1. LOCAL SUPPORT
When hosting locally you will also notice a better quality of support when you need it the most. For example, time difference and language will not be an issue. Using a reputable local company to host your website means you have easier access to quality support. 24/7/365 telephone, email, and/or chat support and could resolve any issue for you on the spot, where possible. One phone call connects the small business owner to a customer care rep instead of an automated phone tree.

Finally, it is advisable that you host locally rather than overseas, if your target market is local. Hosting your website locally will ensure more uptime for your website, high speed loading time for your web pages, and faster browsing for your local visitors, along with greater access to expert support and optimum access for your target market, creating great user experience.
Perhaps right now,more than any other time would be good to reassess your website hosting. For reliable and affordable local hosting go to www.garanntor.ng
