Information & eGovernment Authority confirmed that the SMSs from (GOVBH) are valid and official, and are being sent through telecom companies, in collaboration with TRA.
To verify the authenticity of the message, the user will be directed immediately to the official National Portal, www.bahrain.bh, which is the only registration platform.
iGA urged users once again to update their contact details to receive official government notifications via SMS and email in instead of by post.
To use the NotifyMe service on Bahrain.bh, users can log in with their eKey or ID card, then select ‘Register Contact Details’. Once the login attempt is successful, the system will request users to enter their mobile numbers and One-Time Passwords (OTP) which they will receive via SMS on the same mobile number. They can then click on the link they receive by emails to complete the registration process.
