Want To Prevent Misuse Of Your Aadhaar Here How You Can Do It

Aadhaar card is a unique identity proof authorised by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to Indian citizens that includes demographic and 12-digit biometric specifics. It is the most important authentication document, as it is needed for everything from opening a bank account, applying for a PAN card, filing IT returns and so on. 
 
The Indian government has taken a number of steps to improve Aadhaar confidentiality, as well as to safeguard Aadhaar security and avoid its misapplication. Locking Aadhaar implies using the 16-digit Virtual ID (VID) instead of your 12-digit Aadhaar for all forms of verification. And once Aadhaar is locked, individuals are unable to perform biometric, demographic, or OTP-based authentication using the UID, UID Token, or ANCS Token. If a citizen wishes to unlock their UID, they can do so via the resident portal. 
 
Upon unlocking, residents can use their UID, UID Token, and ANCS Token to authenticate for Biometric, Demo, and OTP-based transactions, as well as their VID. Hence, below are the ways following which you can lock your Aadhaar card biometrics and prevent it from misuse.
