UIDAI intros mAadhaar app for Android users

To make use of mAadhar app, you will need have to Aadhar card with registered mobile number.

"UIDAI (The Unique Identification Authority of India) has taken note of the same and is regularly monitoring the status to get the Aadhaar data removed from the said websites", Minister of State for Electronics and IT, PP Chaudhary said in a written reply in Lok Sabha.

The app which is available only on the Android platform now, allows users to not only have their Aadhaar profile on their mobile as a quick and convenient identification proof, it also lets users lock/ unlock their biometric data that's linked to Aadhaar via the app to secure their personal data. But, it would be launched for iOS user soon. The app will let users share their number to Aadhaar profile, data with third-party applications via NFC, QR codes, Barcodes or even email their details. With this initiative, UIDAI reduces the burden of carrying the Aadhaar card everywhere you go, given the fact that Aadhaar eKYC details are required for everything today.

Download the app and setup a unique password, followed by entering the 12-digit Aadhaar number.

However, Aadhaar card data is sensitive and can be misused if the phone gets into wrong hands. Plus, the app comes with the Time Based One Time Password (TOTP) feature, which can be used instead of the SMS based OTP. This is the mobile number your Aadaar is linked to, and so ensure you have the same mobile number otherwise verification will fail. There are options to lock/ unlock user biometric data in order to secure personal data.

However, the app is now in beta stage, notes UIDAI in its announcement tweet, and some of the features will be made available post future updates.

Download #mAadhaar from https://t.co/6o4DdtWs3B on any android phone running on Android 5.0 & up. It will work only if you are using the same sim card which is registered with UIDAI. Users also complained about manually keying in OTP and QR scanning functions not working properly.
