2 Ways To Share Glo Data Using USSD

How To Share Glo Data

Data sharing on Glo is quite different from how it is on other networks like MTN and Airtel. Sharing data on Glo involves giving the recipient access to use from your existing data balance. On other networks, data sharing is transferring an amount of data from your data balance to the recipient. 

The main method of sharing Glo data with another Glo subscriber is through USSD. There are two USSD codes that can be used to transfer data on Glo. 

Method 1

  1. Dial *321# on your Glo line
  2. Select option 1 “Share Data”. 
  3. Enter the recipient’s Glo number
  4. You will receive a notification confirming the data sharing, meaning the recipient can now use your data balance. 

Method 2

  1. Dial *312# on your Glo line. 
  2. Select option 3 “Share data”.
  3. Once again, select option 1 “Share Data” from the list of options displayed. 
  4. Type in the recipient’s Glo number
  5. You will get a notification stating the data share was successful. This means the recipient can now use your data balance.

Alternatively, you can transfer data by visiting Glo cafe from your device to use the sharing option. Note that to access this website, you have to be using your Glo line for data connection.
