MAadhar app launched….get details here

All you need is the mobile number registered with your Aadhaar card and a smartphone running on Android 5.0 and upper versions.

Amid the controversy around linking Aadhaar to permanent account number (PAN), Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) on Wednesday announced the launch of an official mobile application for Aadhaar.

The UIDAI has launched the mAadhaar for android users only. Sadly, the app is available only for the Android users, not for iOS users. It lets users carry your unique identification profile on your smartphone.

The app literally enables one to carry their Aadhaar card in their smart phones.

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. "LAUNCHING #mAadhaar- Carry your Aadhaar on your Mobile".

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. In conclusion, clients can refresh their profiles as well after successful completion of the request.




The app, now in beta has Time-based One-Time Password (TOTP) feature which replaces SMS based OTP. You can share QR code and password protected eKYC data to retrieve accurate demographic information from it instead of manually entering details.

Biometric locking/unlocking - To secure biometric authentication by locking biometrics data.

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

You will need Android 4.4 and upwards preinstalled to use mAadhaar app on your phone.

From what we observe from the reviews on the Play Store, the app may be quite buggy at the moment and has received a LOT of negative reviews but since this is its first public release, you should be patient and provide a helpful review for the app developers so they could improve the app in the future release.
