And now to the main part. Here, I assume you fished out the malicious dudes sharing your data.
To remove any number from the list of numbers you share your data with, you can use a USSD code function. Simply dial *127*02*[victim’s number]#. Alternatively, you can send “Remove [victim’s number]” to 127.
The victim’s number is the number of the user you’re willing to remove. For example, if you want to remove 090818234564, you just have to replace [victim’s number] with 090818234564q. remember, you should never put the square brackets or you get an angry error message from Glo.
The number should be removed immediately, if there are no errors. Try running a check on the list of the phone numbers you currently share your data with to confirm its effectiveness.
That’s the process you follow to unshare data on Glo. I hope the whole process wasn’t so painstaking. Come on, remove the numbers and apologize to the victims, for I’m dead sure they’d be mad at you right now.
