The UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) has launched mAadhaar App. It is an Aadhaar centric mobile app for Android and iOS devices. This app helps you access your personal Aadhaar details on the mobile phone. The intention of this app is to ease the access of users to their Aadhaar information. If you download mAadhaar app, you do not need to carry the hardcopy of the document for identification all the time. As the app provides a soft copy of the card, you are good to go.
The new version of this app has added features such as ‘Aadhaar Services Dashboard’ and ‘My Aadhaar Section:
1. Aadhaar Services Dashboard (ASD)
You can use ASD for online services related to your Aadhaar. You can apply for a new Aadhaar card from here and check your authentication history. For new Aadhaar Card application, go to ‘Order Aadhaar Print’ and enter Aadhaar details for verification. Now pay the asked fee to get the new card on your registered address. You can also use the app to unlock or lock your biometric data or receive One Time Password (OTP) on the app. But this type of OTP is valid only for 30 seconds.
2. My Aadhaar Section
This section contains details of your Aadhaar and personal information such as your photograph, full name, and date of birth, gender, and address. It is possible to add profiles of other holders of Aadhaar here as well. Through this app, you can virtually share your Aadhaar information via a QR code. This code is only generated for a short time.
For now, this app is only available to smartphone users.
