Why unshare data on Glo?
Basically, there might come a time when you decide to stop certain people from benefiting from your data. Many of us have friends around who love to sneakily add their numbers to your shared data plan, and when such happens, you have to remove them. More so, having too many numbers on your shared data plan means you’d run out of data within a short while, and probably when you need it the most. See Glo NIN registration process.
How do I view the numbers my Glo data is shared with?
Firstly, before knowing the number to unshare, you have to check if they are actually sharing your data. This is to say, you need access to every number sharing your data. Therefore, to do this, simply follow the process below:
- Through SMS, send “List” to 127 or
- Dial *127*00# on your call dialog.
On doing any of those, Glo would respond with a message within minutes. Basically, this message should contain all the current numbers that are sharing your data subscription. Also, if there is no one sharing your data, Glo would inform you. You can check out our posts on how to borrow airtime from Airtel and how to borrow data from Airtel.
How to unshare data on Glo
- Dial *127*02*[friend’s number]# on your call dialog or
- Text “Remove [Friend’s number]” to 127
In practical terms, you can either dial *127*02*0805XXXXXXX# or navigate to your message section and text “Remove 0805XXXXXXX” to 127. However, take note that you are not to include the quotes in the message, as they are only used for illustrative purposes here.
On texting this, Glo should respond with a message that the number has been removed from your data subscription and would no longer have access to it. Basically, unsharing your data with a specific number is as simple as that. See how to borrow airtime from MTN.
You can unshare your Glo data from any number using the steps above. However, note that if you do not receive a response from Glo, your network is probably poor.
