Importing Aadhaar Details in mAadhaar App

After setting up the password, users have to import their Aadhaar details. This can be done by entering your 12 digit Aadhaar number and requesting for a One Time Password (OTP). The OTP will be sent to the registered mobile number connected to the Aadhaar entered. After verifying the OTP, the user can see their Aadhaar details in the App. The details are shown as in the Aadhaar Card.

Features of mAadhaar App

Biometric Locking/Unlocking

UIDAI has introduced the Biometric locking feature late last year so that Aadhaar holders can specify if they don’t want their biometric information to be used for Authentication or not. Locked Biometric information means the no one can access user’s biometric information for authentication purpose and keep the information safe in a secured environment.

A user can Lock or Unlock their biometric information using the mAadhaar app. This makes the whole Locking/Unlocking process easy, fast and more convenient for the user.

TOTP Generation

Requested for an OTP and waiting for last 10 minutes for it, this has happened to all of us. To help users in this scenario, UIDAI has introduced the feature of Time based One Time password (TOTP) in the mAadhaar app which can be used instead of OTP. The TOTP expires every 1 minute and a new TOTP is generated.

Sharing of QR Code and eKYC data

This is the most important feature of mAadhaar app and which we think will be used the most in near future. With Aadhaar required for almost every government related task, be it getting an Indian Passport or claiming your EPF, the requirement for easy access to Aadhaar KYC is a must. mAadhaar gives you 2 options to share your demographic information in a secured way

  1. QR Code – You can generate a QR code containing your demographic information as linked with Aadhaar through mAadhaar app. The authentication agency will just have to scan this and voila! your authentication is done, No more photocopies of Aadhaar, no more cross signing.
  2. e-KYC – You can also send your KYC (Know Your Customer) information over the internet via an Email or share via file sharing services like Dropbox directly by the mAadhaar app. The data will be in encrypted format and can only be read by UIDAI servers, thus maintaining the privacy of your data.

By launching this mAadhaar app, UIDAI and Government of India has taken a huge leap in the Digital India front. Hope to see more of useful products like this coming in future to make the life of an average Indian easier.

Security Features in UIDAI mAadhaar App

There are a number of features introduced in mAadhaar App. Security is given paramount importance in the app which is evident from the fact that, the first task a user has to perform to use the app is to set up a password to access the app. The password should have at least 8 characters and must have a capital letter, 1 numerical symbol and 1 special character.

Keeping in mind the security, UIDAI has gone one step further and ask for a password set in the first step at every action taken by the user. It can be irritating for some users (as the writer has found it to be), you also have an option to disable this in settings.
