How to Share MTN Data with Family & Friends


We recently posted about how to buy data on MTN. However, we discovered that many people want to share their data with their friends but are unable to do it. Well, it’s easy.

To share MTN data to family and friends:

Activate any MTN Data Plan of your choice.

Dial *131*2*1# or text REG to 131; to register for MTN Data Share, you will receive a unique security PIN

After that, change the system generated PIN to a new PIN they can easily remember by dialling*131*2*5# or by texting Change OLD_PIN NEW_PIN NEW_PIN to 131. E.g Change 0000 1234 1234 to 131. Where 0000 is old PIN and 1234 is your new PIN.

After changing the PIN, you are required to add beneficiaries to your MTN shared Data Bundle account via USSD menu *131*2*2# or by texting Add <MSISDN> <PIN> to 131. You can add up to 5 beneficiaries.

Once done with these processes, you will be able to share your available data bundle among the added beneficiaries by sending the keyword Share <PIN> to 131 or simply dial USSD code *131*2*3#.
