Airtel Me2U Service: Effective Transfer and Password Tips

Me2U is a long existing service that lets you transfer airtime credit from one Airtel sim to another. The services was introduced in the days when the company we now know as Airtel NG today was ran by V.Mobile (a Nigerien telecommunication company).

Using Me2u

Every Airtel subscriber is entitled to use the Me2u service; no activation is required. The password by default is set to 1234 and you can go ahead and perform transactions with this password.

However, to be on the safer side, it is recommended that you change this password to something that will be easy for you to remember and difficult for others to guess.

Security consciousness is” the first step of wisdom”, especially when the matter involves money. How do you ensure that a malicious person will not transfer your airtime credit when your phone is being stolen, or while you are charging your mobile phone at mama nkechi’s kiosk?

We shall find out, but first, let me show you how to change your default password.

How to reset Airtel Me2u password

To change your Me2U default password, send a message to 432 using the following format: PIN OldPin NewPin

For example if you want your new pin to be 3030, then send “PIN 1234 3030” to 432.

Password Tips for Airtel Me2u Service

It’s one thing to have a strong password, remembering this password is a different story altogether. Aritel will not hesitate to bar you from using the Me2u service the first time you enter a wrong password thrice. To save you the troubles of going through the rigorous process of unbarring your account, it is important to strike a balance between a strong password and a password you can remember.

With that being said, let’s take a long look at some of the effective tips that will help you maintain a healthy Me2u password and keep the thieves away.

  • Avoid using a straight password: A password like 2468, 1234, 9876 etc. will often be easy for anyone to guess as it involves the multiple of a single number, serial increase and decrease of a number respectively.
  • Do not use a single number for password:  e.g. 1111, 2222, 9999 etc.
  • Do not use your year of birth: Someone who knew you were born on 1987 can easily assume that it’s your password. Just make sure you don’t fall for that mistake.
  • Beware of the last four digits of your phone number: Using the last four digit of your phone may sound like a good bargain but when all other methods fails, the thief might be tempted to try the last four digit of your phone number.

Any random four numbers is a good password, you can pick any four digit from your first flyer number, the last four digit of your first phone number or even the birth year of your grand mother.

Transferring Airtime Credit with Airtel Me2u

Did you just recharge the wrong sim? Or need to transfer some airtime credit to your daughter in high school? Just send a message to 432 using the following message format: 2U PhoneNumber Amount PIn

For instance, if you want to transfer N100 to 08020000000 and your pin is 1234, then send: “2U 08020000000 100 1234” to 432.

How to Transfer Airtime using Airtel STK

How to unbar Airtel Me2u

Unfortunately, there is no short code readily available to unbar me2u service on your Airtel line. Not to worry though, you can still unbar your account and continue enjoying Airtel Me2u service.
