How To Access My Vodacom Account
Although one of the easiest and most convenient ways of accessing your account is through the mobile app, it is not the only available means. You can also have access to your account using either the Vodacom website or USSD codes:
Accessing your Vodacom account through the website is very easy, but before you can proceed, you will need to have data on the device you are using. Now, you can proceed from the website and select Personal, followed by Services, and My Vodacom. At the top right corner, you will see a login Icon. Click on it and then register if you are coming for the first time.
If, on the other hand, you have previously registered, simply simply click on Login and input your details. This will allow you access to manage your account.
Probably easier than all the other means of accessing your account and the services is using the USSD Self-service code. To do this, simply dial *135# from your Vodacom cellphone and select what you want.
