If you have forgotten or lost your Bank of Baroda mPin, here is an easy guide to help you reset it. There are three convenient ways to reset your mPin in mobile banking, which we will cover in this post.
mPin is a four-digit secret password which you can set to authenticate yourself for doing transactions on Bank of Baroda mobile banking app (just like we have Debit Card pin for ATM transactions).
Bank of Baroda has its official Mconnect Plus App for mobile banking. When you start using the app for the first time, you are required to generate a new mPin. You need this mPin to perform any transaction on the MConnectPlus App like Fund transfer, Payment etc.
Note that the mPin is different from the Application Password. Application Password is used only for opening Mconnectplus App and not for any transaction.
