NCA to introduce shortcode for verifying phone numbers linked to Ghana Cards

The National Communications Authority (NCA) has made plans public for developing a system that would let users check how many SIM cards are connected to their Ghana Cards.

Recently, there have been more reports of numbers connected to people’s Ghana Cards, and many have called for a uniform and user-friendly mechanism that will enable them to confirm the numbers connected to their Cards.

Using a shortcode, users will be able to check the number of SIM cards connected to their Ghana Cards, according to NCA, which revealed this in a social media post.

You merely enter the shortcode on your phone, and following a verification procedure using your Ghana card pin, the number of SIMs linked with the Ghana card will be shown. The NCA and the Telcos have already been actively working on this shortcode for Individual Subscribers.

There would be no need to wait in line at the numerous telecom service centers for verification, according to the NCA, who stated that the shortcode will be ready by the end of April.

When the testing is finished and authorized, the shortcode will be active by the end of April 2023, eliminating the requirement for subscribers to physically visit the telco to verify the same.
