Try to Avoid sharing Aadhaar, share only masked version, UIDAI

People in the country should utilise the disguised Aadhaar card, which only shows the last four digits of your Aadhaar number

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has clarified the UIDAI recommendation released on May 29, 2022.

The Indian government has issued an order prohibiting anyone from sharing their Aadhaar card photocopy with anybody, even organisations. The rule essentially emphasises that sharing or distributing photocopies of your Aadhaar card may be exploited by others. "Do not distribute photocopies of your Aadhaar with any organisations since it might be exploited," the Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) stated in a press release.



The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) also advises you to use caution when utilising your Aadhaar card for verification or paperwork. People should also avoid downloading Aadhaar copies from public computers like as those found in cyber cafes, according to the announcement. If you still wish to utilise this approach to obtain a copy of your Aadhaar, make sure to erase any e-copies from the system, including the recycling bin.

In regard to cautioning individuals against misusing Aadhaar duplicates, the MeitY directive also cautions companies involved in the usage of Aadhaar for various reasons. It seeks to ensure that organisations with the necessary licences use Aadhaar to identify people, and that they have obtained a User License from the UIDAI.

Other businesses, including as hotels and movie theatres, are prohibited from obtaining and storing copies of the Aadhaar card. It is a violation under the Aadhaar Act 2016 if they engage in such acts.
