No need to worry about which short code you need to dial in order to access our different services. It is now as simple as 456…
In line with our customer first strategy, we have come up with a single short code that will help our customers access all the services with a single dial. The unified short code *456# is a service transformation aiming to give Safaricom customers a transformed and enhanced experience while accessing the different services via short codes.
