  • UIDAI launches mobile app

To all those who forget to carry their identification proof and later face a lot of hassles, UDAI's "mAadhaar app" is the ideal solution for you.

Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has launched a mobile app for you to carry your Aadhaar number. Name, Date of Birth, Gender & Address along with photograph as linked with their Aadhaar Number in smart phones. The app is available on the Google Play Store. However, the app is now not seen on the Apple iOS, but we can expect a launch quite soon. This app allows Android smartphone users to carry their information on their smartphone. Once it is done, it will take you to the home menu, where one can see his/her Aadhaar card. The application allows users to download Aadhaar profile through their smartphones and will therefore not require hard copies of the card, wherever applicable. To counter this, the app has a biometric authentication.

Users also have an option to secure their biometric data by locking or unlocking the details under the Biometric Locking system option available in the app. However, if your mobile number is not registered with the Aadhaar, you can visit the nearest enrollment centre to get your mobile number updated.

To use the app for Aadhaar-linked services, one will need to generate a "time-based One-Time Password" (TOTP) or share QR code and e-KYC (know your customer).


What if I have changed my number after I made my Aadhaar card?

And do make a note that the app is still in beta stage, nevertheless, it's already live in the Play Store.

The app can be installed on any Android phone running on Android 5.0 and up and a registered mobile number is mandatory requirement to sign-up.

From what we observe from the reviews on the Play Store, the app may be quite buggy at the moment and has received a LOT of negative reviews but since this is its first public release, you should be patient and provide a helpful review for the app developers so they could improve the app in the future release.
