How to Update Airtel Sim Card Online.
How to Update Airtel Sim Card Online. Over the last few weeks, Kenyans have been put under pressure to update their sim card details before their lines are ‘disconnected’, thanks to the communication authority for extending the registration deadline to 15th October 2022.
The authority had earlier directed that all telecommunication companies register their subscriber’s biodata afresh, including a recent passport by the 15th of April. However, following a lot of complaints from concerned parties, including the deputy president William Ruto, the authority bowed to pressure and reviewed the deadline.
But what if you’ve already registered or purchased your line in 2022? You’ll need to re-register it. This is due to the fact that dual or multiple SIM registrations have been occurring, with some of these registrations being illegal.
The fact that fraudulently registered SIM cards exist means that their fictitious owners are using them to commit fraud or crime. To be clear, authorities and carriers have been unable to control the problem for a long time, resulting in the re-registration process.
Customers of Airtel Kenya can complete the process online and in a reasonable amount of time. All you’ll need is your ID, a camera or smartphone capable of taking clear images of it, and, of course, your SIM card.
