  • mAadhar app launched….get details here

mAadhaar is official mobile application which will provide an interface to Aadhaar Number Holders to carry their demographic information viz.

Even as the Supreme Court is hearing arguments on whether the right to privacy is a fundamental right, Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) on Wednesday announced the launch of mAadhaar app for Android users. "This is a convenient way to carry Aadhaar number with demographic details anytime, anywhere", mentions the app description.

The mAadhaar app is now available for download on Google Play for only Android users.

(UIDAI) has launched "mAadhaar app", giving a further boost to the government's Digital India initiative. This password will be required every time you wish to carry out any action on the app.

After you link your registered mobile number is to the mAadhaar app, you will get an option to the download Aadhaar Number profile directly through the device. However, if your mobile number is not registered with the Aadhaar, you can visit the nearest enrollment centre to get your mobile number updated. It also features a biometric locking/unlocking service through which the registered user can only choose to access it.

While there has been no leakage of Aadhaar data from the UIDAI, about 210 websites of the central and state government departments were found to be displaying personal details and Aadhaar numbers of beneficiaries, the government informed the Parliament today.

Time-based One-Time Password is an automatically generated temporary password which can be used instead of SMS based OTP.

The mAadhaar app is now in the beta stage and will be adding up a number of the features in the future.

After setting up the password, it will ask you to enter your Aadhar card number, or if you have your Aadhaar card, you can scan the QR code to let the application do its work. The app can run on any Android smartphones running Android 5.0 version or above.

However, the disappointment is that the app only shows your Aadhaar details and you can modify or update the details via the app. UIDAI might add this feature in the coming days though.
