- UIDAI launches new mobile app called mAadhaar
- mAadhaar will negate the need to carry Aadhaar card in physical form
- Users to have demographic details of Aadhaar card on smartphones
The app comes with a biometric lock/unlock feature to secure the personal data. Once a user enables the lock system, the app remains locked till he/she chooses to either unlock it (which is temporary) or disable the locking system. It also has a "TOTP generation" (Time-Based One-Time Password) process which can be used instead of SMS-based OTP.
Users can update their profiles too but only after successful completion of the request. To use the "mAadhaar" app, a registered mobile number is a must. In case your mobile number is not registered, visit the nearest Aadhaar Enrolment Centre or Mobile Update End Point. A QR code facility and password protected eKYC data are among additional features provided in the app.
