  • Although, I do not personally recommend this method because it involves spending some time on the internet to check your balance but it might be what you have to do sometimes. For instance; you are currently browsing on the internet and you do not like to minimize or close your browser. You can easily open a new tab and check what you have left of your Glo data bundle. To do that, just type ‘’ into your browser or click here.

You do not need to have data on your phone to access the Glo self-care portal.
