Ecobank Account Number
An Ecobank account is a 10-digit unique NUBAN number given to each customer after opening a bank account. Your account number is like your phone number meaning nobody has the same number. Eco bank account number can start with 12 or other digits followed by the rest 9 digits.
Ideally, you can find your Ecobank account number in your bank statement (e.g. email), mobile app, internet banking and cheques. However, if you cannot remember your account number or lost it where you wrote it, dial the USSD code to retrieve it.

This way, no need to type in a special message and send it to a dedicated number like the First Bank account number SMS code.

How to Check Eco bank Account Number without PIN
Without the USSD PIN, you can check your Ecobank account number online or visit any Ecobank branch near you.
You can find the Ecobank account number online on the mobile app, email alert and e-statement.
Also, you can know your account number without a PIN by visiting any Ecobank branch near you. A customer care representative will assist you in retrieving this information.
Apart from these methods, you need a PIN to check the Ecobank account number when using *326#.
A PIN exists to secure your bank account by preventing someone from authorising a transaction without having the secret codes. This is the reason Eco Bank will prompt you to create a PIN when activating the USSD code, mobile app, and Internet banking.
Can you use BVN to Get your Eco bank Account Number?
You do not need to use BVN to check your Ecobank account number. Ecobank would not ask for it. Entering your BVN cannot retrieve your Eco bank account number or other bank account numbers linked to it.
So, instead of BVN, you use your PIN or ATM card details to check your Eco bank account number with a USSD code, mobile app, or customer care.
However, if the reason to use BVN to check your Ecobank account number is that you have no ATM card (or lost) or PIN, visit any Eco bank branch. Go to the customer care unit and a representative will assist you to get your Ecobank account number.
Can you Retrieve Eco bank Account Number without ATM Debit Card?
If you have activated the USSD code, you can check your Ecobank bank account number without an ATM card. After dialling *326*0#, you will enter your PIN, not your ATM card details. An ATM debit card is only useful to activate the USSD banking code for the first time.
Also, you can check your Ecobank account number without an ATM card online through the mobile app. That is if you have registered the app.
How to Check Account Number through Ecobank Customer Care
