Do you own an Android or iPhone smartphone? If so, you can download BBM and connect with friends and family around the world for free! To help you get started, here are a few things you’ll want to know. BBM uses a unique PIN number which is assigned to you as your unique identity. To be able to add friends to your contact list and vice-a-verse you need this PIN number. So if you missed it, then just follow below to find and locate your PIN number.
A PIN is a unique identifier used in BBM that is automatically generated when you log in to BBM for the first time. It’s a neat way to connect with people without having to give them personal information like your email address or phone number. You can also add a new contact on BBM by showing them your PIN Barcode (this looks like a QR code), rather than having to type out the PIN number. After your friend scans your PIN Barcode, you’ll be added to each other’s contact lists. Again, no personal information is exchanged, just your unique PINs.
For iPhone and Android users:
1. Open the App on your phone.
2. Tap on the top navigation bar (where it shows your name and BBM picture).
3. In the next screen you will find you PIN and Barcode.
