Aadhaar is a national identity card issued by the Unique Identity Authentication Agency of India (UIDAI). Many Indians now have an Aadhaar card, and you can use it to verify your identity when acquiring a new SIM card, connecting to a gas station, or even making payments. Your Aadhaar data also includes biometric information, such as retina scans and fingerprint scans, so this is a common method of authentication. You can use your Aadhaar card and verify your identity via biometrics or a one-time password sent to your phone at once, instead of having to fill out lengthy forms for everything that requires a valid photo ID. If you are worried that your Aadhaar data may be misused, you can also lock Aadhaar biometric data online. You can also check when your Aadhaar data is used for authentication. Just follow the steps below.
- Go to UIDAI’s Aadhaar authentication history page.
- Enter your Aadhaar number and verification code in the image.
- Please click Generate OTP. You will get a one-time password via SMS on your phone. If you have not already done so, follow the steps below to verify your phone number using UIDAI.
- On the next page, UIDAI allows you to filter searches by specific authentication request types (e.g. biometrics, demographics, etc.). The page even allows you to select a date range-you can view authentication requests six months before the current date. The last field is OTP. Just enter and click submit.
- Now you will be able to see a detailed list of Aadhaar authentication requests. This will display the date, time and type of authentication request. However, it does not show which company or agent uses your Aadhaar data for identity verification.
This is how you check Aadhaar’s authentication history. Remember, it is not mandatory to carry a printed copy of Aadhaar everywhere-you can always use the mAadhaar app or download a copy of the Aadhaar card directly.
