Sharing Aadhaar card number online? Read warning by UIDAI
People share their personal information, including Aadhaar on internet, to some or other service provider or vendor to get the services and when they put their details on internet they should take due precautions as required in any digital activities, Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) said. Asserting the robustness of the Aadhaar identity system, the nodal body, which issues the 12-digit biometric identifier, said that "publication or posting of Aadhaar cards by some unscrupulous people have absolutely no bearing on UIDAI and not the least on Aadhaar security"
UIDAI argued that mere knowledge about someone's Aadhaar card is not sufficient to impersonate that person as biometric authentication is needed to establish ones identity. Image source: Reuters
