To further empower its customers, Vodafone India has introduced innovative service for its subscribers in Maharashtra & Goa – Vodafone Private Recharge – a free of cost service, which enables users to recharge their prepaid number without sharing the mobile number with retailers.
Announcing the launch of this service in the circle, Ashish Chandra – Business Head, Maharashtra & Goa Circle said, “With the world going digital and smartphones becoming the primary data storage device, security of personal information has become a key concern for people. Vodafone Private Recharge helps subscribers keep their phone numbers private and protected from malicious usage. Being one of the most preferred telecom service providers in Maharashtra & Goa, Vodafone is delighted to announce this revolutionary service to make our customers feel more secure and empowered. “
To avail the Vodafone Private Recharge option, a customer needs to send a toll free SMS ‘PRIVATE’ to 12604. The customer will receive a unique 10 digit OTP which can then be shared at a multi brand retail outlet, Vodafone Store or a Vodafone Mini Store, instead of the customer’s mobile number to recharge with the desired denomination. Receipt of a successful recharge message on the customer’s mobile number will complete the recharge process.
