Globe SIM registration via GlobeOne App Now Open
As of Feb 23, 2023
Globe customers can now register their SIMs through the GlobeOne app, another convenient and accessible option to comply with the SIM Registration Act.
By making SIM registration available on the app, Globe hopes to expand reach to its subscribers and finish registration of roughly 86.7 million SIM users under the Globe network by the April 26, 2023 deadline. As of February 22, Globe has logged over 14.47 million registrations.
“We have made the GlobeOne app available for SIM registration to provide an easy and convenient platform for our customers to register. Through the app, you’ll be able to complete your registration in three easy steps! What’s more, you will also get to access exclusive offers, and the best deals and rewards available only on the app. We encourage our customers to plan and schedule their SIM registration as early as they can,” said Darius Delgado, Globe Consumer Mobile Business Head.
The GlobeOne app may be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play. Subscribers must have all the necessary information and documents ready before starting the registration process. These are the following:
- Full name
- Type of government ID presented and ID number
- Valid government ID with photo (file size only up to 4MB)
- Selfie photo (file size only up to 4MB)
Once ready, you may register in three easy steps:
- Tap ‘Register Your SIM’ when you open the GlobeOne app
- Select the account you want to register or enter your number. Update your info.
- Wait for the confirmation that you’re registered!
Customers are advised to take note of their registration number after successfully submitting their details.
Globe also reiterated its warning against dealing with individuals or parties offering their services to help with SIM registration as this may lead to fraud and identity theft. For instance, fraudsters may use your personal details to hack your bank accounts or e-wallets, or create fake accounts with your name and photo for use in illicit activities.
“We strongly advise customers to only use official channels for SIM registration and not to share personal information with strangers or unverified sources. The GlobeOne app and our company's SIM registration website, new.globe.com.ph/simreg, are the only official channels where our customers should register,” said Delgado.
Globe has also started rolling out assisted registration sites for senior citizens, persons with disabilities, pregnant women, users of basic or feature phones and anyone in need of help to get their SIMs registered. This is to ensure that customers are able to register their SIMs in a timely and convenient manner regardless of their challenges or circumstances.
Globe encourages all customers to register their SIMs before the deadline of April 26, 2023 to avoid the risk of SIM deactivation.
Be Part Of History And Join Globe's National SIM Registration Week
As of Feb 21, 2023
Over 500 Assistance Desks rolling out nationwide,
GlobeOne app now open for prepaid SIM registration
Globe, the Philippines’ leader in mobile, on Monday launched the first ever National SIM Registration Week (NSRW), rolling out assistance desks in over 500 locations across the country from February 20, 2023 onwards to make it easier for customers to register their SIM cards.
Globe Consumer Mobile Business Head Darius Delgado and Channel Management Group Head Cleo Santos spearheaded the launch together with National Telecommunications Commissioner Ella Blanca Lopez, Department of Information and Communications Technology Undersecretary Anna Mae Lamentillo, and Makati Mayor Abigail Binay at a Globe facility in Makati City.
The initiative is part of Globe’s goal to reach out to customers, especially senior citizens, PWDs, pregnant women, users of basic phones and those with no internet access to get them compliant with the SIM Registration Act before the April 26, 2023 deadline.
"The National SIM Registration Week is a momentous initiative that will bring together Filipinos across the country to register their SIMs and move us closer to our goal of reducing spam and scam text messages, which is the intent of the SIM Registration Act. It's a historic moment for Globe as we endeavor to get closer to our customers through online channels and on-site booths. We encourage our customers to be part of this activity. Together let’s keep the online space safe and secure," said Delgado.
Customers who complete SIM registration during National SIM Registration Week and those who register online are entitled to join an exclusive Globe raffle and win tickets to the highly-anticipated annual outdoor music and arts festival Wanderland and the Arctic Monkeys concert in March. The promo, open to all successful SIM registrants, is open until February 28, 2023.
In partnership with the Makati City local government unit, Globe is also offering Makatizens assisted registration services at the Makati City Hall open parking area from February 20 to 24, 2023.
Globe is undertaking multiple initiatives to reach its customers for SIM registration. With roughly 86.7 million SIMs under its network and only three months left to register, the Globe Group has tapped its affiliates, subsidiaries, and the full support of the #OneAyalaGroup to drive registrations.
Since January, Globe has deployed assisted registration hubs across 90 remote areas in support of government-led SIM registration assistance. It also partnered with Puregold in holding assisted registration in 30 strategically selected branches and provided assisted registration during the Sinulog festival in Cebu and the Dinagyang festival in Iloilo.
Globe is committed to make SIM registration simple and convenient, and it has implemented various measures to ensure that everyone can meet the April 26 deadline. Aside from the registration booths, Globe Prepaid and TM customers can also conveniently register via the GlobeOne app or by visiting new.globe.com.ph/simreg.
For Globe Postpaid and Platinum customers, meanwhile, completing SIM registration takes just one step. As soon as the customer receives the call to register SMS, simply text SIMREG to 8080 to confirm that details earlier submitted to Globe during the postpaid plan application are updated.
The SIM Registration Act requires the registration of all SIMs as a major measure against the proliferation of criminal activity, including smishing and other mobile phone and online scams that have spread due to the anonymity of unregistered SIMs.
Globe urges all Filipino mobile users to register their SIMs and support the campaign to beat spam and scam text messages and cybercrime. For more information on the SIM registration process and how to register, visit www.globe.com.ph/help/sim-registration-act.html.
Globe Postpaid Users May Confirm SIM Registration in Just One Step
As of Feb 9, 2023
Starting Feb. 9, 2023, Globe Postpaid customers may start confirming registration of their SIMs in just one easy step.
To complete the SIM registration of its Postpaid customers, Globe today starts sending out an SMS asking them to confirm their details by simply texting SIMREG to 8080.
By sending the SMS, individual Globe Postpaid and Platinum customers confirm to Globe the full name, date of birth, sex, address and proof of identification that they already submitted to Globe during postpaid application.
This step serves as the customers’ expressed confirmation for Globe to use their current details for SIM registration, in compliance with the law.
“We have made it very easy for our valued Postpaid customers to complete their SIM Registration. With just one text, they will be compliant with the SIM Registration law. With this step, we hope to reach more of our customers and get them to register,” said Darius Delgado, Head of Globe’s Consumer Mobile Business.
For prepaid customers, registration remains open 24/7 in Globe’s SIM registration website, new.globe.com.ph/simreg.
Globe has also started rolling out assisted registration sites across the country to extend help to senior citizens, persons with disabilities, pregnant women, users of basic or feature phones and anyone who needs support to get their SIMs registered.
Globe again calls on all its customers to register their SIMS before the April 26, 2023 deadline to avoid SIM deactivation. There are an estimated 86.7 million SIM users in the Globe network.
