Introducing Mobile Web Services (MWS), a new suite of Personal Identity tokens and services, developed, administered and managed by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).
This MobileID Application is issued by the NIMC on behalf of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and serves as a valid means of Identification anywhere a Nigerian (or legal resident) is required to present an ID Token.
It MUST however, always be verified for the transaction to be complete.
The NIMC is also improving the design of the National Identification Number (NIN) Slip, which may also be verified using this App.
The NIMC will collaborate with sister agencies such as the FIRS, FRSC, JAMB, NAFDAC, NHIS and any other Federal or State Government that wishes to provide eServices to citizens via a secure platform.
Using this platform, the MWS Mobile Ecosystem means that the Government can instantly reach out to tens of millions of citizens anywhere in the world.
If you have been issued a National Identification Number (NIN) by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), you are welcome to download this application to use as a complement to, or in place of the physical National Identity Card.
This app may serve as a replacement for a physical Polycarbonate Card, since it also a State-of-the-Art General-Multipurpose resource.
We are here to serve you and welcome your feedback.
Please DO NOT attempt to use a fake Mobile Number or Bank Verification Number (BVN) to register. A NIN is issued by the Federal Government, BVN is not!
This version supports iPads.
Fixed camera permission bug for generating Virtual NIN.
Improved app performance.
Updating is highly recommended.
Ratings and Reviews
Tried to register but not working at all, why is it that this country can’t make anything work?
Fix this ASAP
You guys are updating this app almost every week, well I wanna add this; for those that have paid I would like a platform where we can actually download the ID we have already paid for, because there was no download bottom for us to press like was indicated on the advertisement which is not cool. You guys are just ripping people of there hard earn money which is not nice at all. Please insert the download bottom somewhere for those that had paid for the ID. Or just add the original pdf on the “show my ID” section instead.
Even after paying the 1200 I was not able to download the premium nin, all of sudden I was asked to pay again. How’s that possible ? This is just a way of ripping people of their money, no receipt or proof of payment. You should fix the app ! If possible apple should even take down this app, you have a live chat on the app that doesn’t function. Each time somebody tries to contact you “ we are not available “ do you even know what a live chat is
