The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has launched a mobile app for Aadhaar card users called mAadhaar. The app will allow users to use their cards without carrying them in a physical form.
Users of the mAadhaar app will have all their requisite Aadhaar details on the app. All card-linked information like name, date of birth, gender, and address, photograph, etc. will be available on the mAadhaar app.
Announcing the launch on its twitter handle, the UIDAI stated –
The mAadhaar app is currently available for Android users only, and it is in beta stage. This launch will be followed by other feature updates. The free version of the app is available on Google Play.
To register, users need to log in with the same mobile number as the one specified in the account details. Once logged in, the app will allow users to check status, download the card, lock and unlock biometrics, generate time-based passwords, etc.
