Why Share Data on Glo?
Before we dive into the “how-to” part, let’s briefly discuss why you might want to share data on Glo:
- Emergency Connectivity: Sharing data can be crucial during emergencies when someone needs internet access to contact family, friends, or emergency services.

How to Share Data on Glo
Glo offers a feature called “Glo EasyShare” that allows subscribers to share their data plans with others. Here’s how you can do it:
1. Set Up a PIN (Optional):
Before you can share data on Glo, you have the option to set up a PIN to secure your data sharing. To set up a PIN, follow these steps:
- Dial *127*0*0# on your Glo line.
- You’ll be prompted to create a PIN (a 4-digit number). Choose a PIN that’s easy for you to remember but difficult for others to guess.
2. Share Data:
Now that you’ve set up a PIN (if desired), you can start sharing data:
- Dial *127*01*[Recipient’s Glo Number][Data Amount][PIN#], and then press the “Send” button.
- [Recipient’s Glo Number]: Enter the Glo number of the person you want to share data with.
- [Data Amount]: Specify the amount of data you want to share.
- [PIN#]: If you set up a PIN in step 1, enter it here. If you didn’t set up a PIN, you can skip this part.
- For example, if you want to share 1GB of data with a friend whose Glo number is 0805XXXXXXX and you’ve set up a PIN (e.g., 1234), you would dial 127010805XXXXXXX1024*1234# and press “Send.”
After you’ve entered the required information, you will receive a confirmation message indicating that the data has been successfully shared with the specified recipient.
Sharing data on Glo is a convenient way to help your loved ones stay connected or manage data usage within a group. Whether you’re sharing data for emergency purposes or simply for cost-efficient data management, Glo EasyShare makes the process simple and accessible. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can easily share your Glo data with others and ensure that everyone stays connected in today’s digital age.
