Security of transactions is our priority. We use a range of techniques to ensure maximum protection of your transactions and confidentiality of your personal information, such as encryption of user data, HTTPS and SSL connection, and high level of password protection.
2. And what if my password is stolen?
First, we encourage all our users to create strong passwords and not to disclose their login details to anyone. If, however, your password has been stolen, we urge you to change it as soon as possible. But even if you do not immediately reset your password, we have put in place an added measure to protect your account: if someone tries to login using your password from any device that you have never used before, we will send a verification email to the address that you provided during registration. It is impossible to start using your account from a new device without this confirmation.
3. How can I change my password?
We encourage our clients to change their passwords from time to time to ensure maximum protection. To do this, simply click “Change password” in the “Menu” section of the app.

Just click “Forgot password” at the bottom of the “Registration” page of the app and your password would be sent to the email address you provided during registration.

Change your password immediately. We advise users to change passwords regularly as an added security measure.
3. I have entered a wrong number and sent airtime to a wrong person by mistake. Is there a chance to cancel the transaction?
We urge you to double-check the entered number to make sure it is correct before clicking on “Pay”. You can’t cancel the transaction, but you can contact your mobile operator regarding the issue.
4. I wanted to make a transaction but received an error message instead. What shall I do?
Just wait for a few minutes and try again. Most error messages come as a result of technical issues with the network provider, which is usually resolved within a short period of time.
