Aadhaar is one of the most powerful instruments in India today. UIDAI has generated 1.21 billion Aadhaar cards till date and has covered more than 95% of the Indian population. With the scale of information stored in the database of UIDAI, it has become the most substantial treasure. However, the Aadhaar Act prevents any organisation to access this confidential data in totality. Even UIDAI, which is responsible to store all data and manage it, is not authorised to access it. It shows how concerned the institution is to prevent Aadhaar frauds.
The government knows the importance of this data and is thus taking various steps to protect it from getting breached. It employs multi-level security controls and protocols to prevent the leakage of information during any attempt of security breach or hacking. However, as an informed citizen, it is also our responsibility to protect our Aadhaar data from our end.
A number of cases have come to the forefront where people were duped of their hard-earned money through malicious activities using their Aadhaar details. This happens because people are not well-informed about Aadhaar and security measures they should follow. In this article, we will discuss about ways through which we can prevent Aadhaar frauds from our end if we follow some simple measures.
