MMID stands for Mobile Money Identifier, it is a key identifying detail of a User who performs online transactions. It consists of 7 digits and given to those customers who have registered with a bank for the services.
Each customer has a unique MMID number, the number is formed in a special format, where out of seven the first 4 digits of number used to identify the bank of the user and the last 3 digits identify the account of the user.
With the mobile number of a person or with the MMID we can bank can identify the customer account and can tell whether it is valid or not. With the help of MMID customer can operate multiple banks account on a single mobile number because each account has different MMID number but they can have the same mobile number.
It’s not like that anyone can not see your MMID number, rather than it is used to hide your personal and sensitive information. We always use mobile numbers along with MMID, which helps in increasing the security of the transaction and reduce the rate of false transactions and errors.
