Recharge and get paid lately introduced a security layer over airtime recharge purchase and data bundle subscriptions. The company introduced the security measure for all members to guard against unauthorized airtime recharge and data bundle subscriptions. Every member by this is mandated to create a purchase PIN to protect their account from anyone having access to recharge airtime or subscribe to data bundle.
You might have noticed that when you try to buy airtime or subscribe to data bundle plans using your recharge and get paid account, you would be asked to enter a Purchase PIN. That may come as a surprise to you as you have not come across that before now. Never worry or panic, recharge and get paid is simply trying to protect you from fraudulent activities.
As an extra security measure, anyone having your username and password, even you, without the recharge PIN, cannot recharge airtime or perform data bundle subscriptions
