Aadhar Card News: The mAadhaar app was launched about four years ago in July 2017. Through this, the problem of carrying Aadhaar card in physical form was over and people did not have the fear of spoiling the physical base due to the basis of the smartphone. The Aadhaar regulator UIDAI has brought a new development regarding the app. Under this development, Aadhaar card profiles of 5 people can be added on mAadhaar. The Aadhaar regulator has informed about app development through a tweet. Earlier, a maximum of three profiles could be added to a mAadhaar app.
You can add up to 5 Aadhaar profiles in your #mAadhaar app. OTP for authentication is sent to the registered mobile number of the Aadhaar holder. Download and install the #NewmAadhaarApp from: https://t.co/62MEOf8J3P (Android) https://t.co/GkwPFzM9eq (iOS) pic.twitter.com/gapv443q72

One mobile number registered in all five Aadhar cards
mAadhar app can be installed through Google Playstore (Android Smartphone) or App Store (iOS Smartphone). After installing the profile can be added to it. However, it is important to note here that the same mobile number should be registered in the five Aadhaar cards on which the app is installed on the smartphone. Apart from this, despite keeping five Aadhar cards in the app, only one Aadhar profile will remain active at a time.
Add profile like this on mAadhaar
- Download and install the app from Google Play Store or App Store.
- Enter the 12 digit Aadhaar number in the app or scan the Aadhaar card.
- Fill the information asked in the app and click on Verify.
- OTP will come on the mobile number associated with Aadhaar, which will be auto-filled by the app.
- Aadhaar profile added.
(If any error message comes during this process, you can send your complaint to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any type of complaint related to this can be sent.)
This is how you can delete profiles
- Open your profile on the Aadhar app and click on the menu in the top right.
- Select the delete profile option.
- After this your profile will be deleted from the app.
Keep in mind these points
Aadhar profile in mAadhaar app can be active on only one device at a time. If the same SIM card is inserted in another smartphone, then the old profile will be deleted from the old smartphone by being active and will have to create a new profile on the app on the new device.
mAadhaar cannot run offline because it needs to download data from UIDAI.
To see the recently updated Aadhaar data on the app, one has to go to ‘View updated profile’. This option remains at the top right corner. Upon selecting, OTP will come, which will be filled automatically. After this, the updated profile can be seen by tapping on OK.
Over 35 Aadhaar Services Available
The mAadhaar app is available on the Google Play Store for Android users and the Apple Store for iPhone users. Aadhar card holders can use more than 35 Aadhaar services on the updated mAadhaar app. These services include Aadhaar download, Aadhaar status check, Order Aadhaar reprint, Biometrics lock / unlock, Locate Aadhaar center etc.
