Masked Aadhaar - Details & Benefits

  • A Masked Aadhaar is a digital copy of your Aadhaar card that hides the first 8 digits of your Aadhaar number.
  • It is as valid as a regular Aadhaar card and can be used for any purpose that requires Aadhaar authentication.
  • You can download a Masked Aadhaar from the UIDAI website using your Aadhaar number, Enrolment ID, or Virtual ID.
Here are some of the benefits of using a Masked Aadhaar over a regular Aadhaar:

  • It protects your privacy by hiding your full Aadhaar number.
  • It is more secure than carrying a physical Aadhaar card, which can be lost or stolen.
  • It is more convenient to use, as you can access it from anywhere with an internet connection.
Overall, a Masked Aadhaar is a safe and convenient way to use your Aadhaar number without compromising your privacy.
