|Hello, this is Rahul.
In my opinion, Aadhaar Database is under controlled of government agency UIDAI (Unique Identity Authority of India), they are not 100% secure and safe. If anyone gets your Aadhaar number and for misuse purpose, he needs OTP as a security code to access your biometric data and others document. If you are aware all this hacking or fraud then no one can access your data and data will be safe.
|Anuj Vishwakarma said: (Jan 15, 2021)|
|In my point of view, it is secured about 95% it depends on Aadhar cardholder if Aadhar cardholder is illiterate and use net banking digital wayes and his chance grows up And other hands anyone can hack your name and address by using QR code scanning.|
|Utkarsh Raghuvansi said: (Jan 4, 2021)|
|I don't think Aadhaar database is secured enough as there is a substantial increase in hacking incidents where even our credits and debit cards are not secured. It is always found that this many amounts of card details have been made public so how one can trust Aadhaar. The government should lookover on this matter very seriously.|
|Poonam said: (Jan 4, 2021)|
We have topic 'Is Aadhar database secured enough' to discuss here.
UIDAI (Unique identity authority of India) declared publicly that Aadhar is fully secured and safe as there is no date leak at UIDAI. Report based on RTI clarifies that 210 gov websites made Aadhar information public.
By simply knowing Aadhar number no one can harm your personal data because only the Aadhar number is not sufficient, it requires biometric to identify Aadhar details.
Hacker will not be able to harm your private details until you are alert because for any transaction they require OTP that has been shared only with your own mobile number.
In my opinion, Aadhar database is secured enough until you are alert with your mobile data exchange.

|In my opinion, Aadhar database is secured enough. It works under UIDAI. It is a proper government body that works by Full responsibility. In aadhar card bar code scan is also available. Only by scanning our information are leaked. There was need for biometric also and asks security question. So in my opinion aadhar card is secured.|
|Bipan Kumar said: (Dec 22, 2020)|
I m Bipan Kumar.
In my view, a middle and low level of pers doing work hard from that they have to erase their fingerprints respectively when they make UIDAI they gave initially fingerprints but after some time they keep away from the t than they face problems probably. But it is a positive point with the help of it nobody can hack our account so that our hard work income is safe.
|Prakash Bhati said: (Dec 15, 2020)|
|Greetings to all.
In my opinion, on-topic Aadhar databases secured enough? Yes, I think it is safe enough because it is under UIDAI (Unique identification Authority of India) and it is a government agency which is secure our data security. Many crimes are reducing day by day because of it. Ni one can easily hack Aadhar card because if anyone wants to use our identity, he will have to give his /her fingerprints and also give the OTP (one-time password) if anyone no share his OTP, Aadhar is completely safe. But many people make many Aadhar card and misuse in election banks etc with corrupt politicians.
Thanks a lot.
|Anshul Singh said: (Dec 10, 2020)|
In my opinion, the Aadhaar database is secured enough because it is under the control of UIDAI and it is a government agency. As we all know if someone tries to hack their database he needs to enter a security code we can call it OTP and it will send on the no you have registered for Aadhaar and in my opinion, if you are aware enough about these things then no one can hack your database it's your responsibility to secure yourself and your data.
|Saket said: (Dec 3, 2020)|
In my point of view, Yes , Aadhar database secured enough. Because it is under the control in UIDAI & UIDAI is a government agency where all the information related to the users of aadhar card are keep with carefully and secretly . No one can hacked it easily , if if they hack the id they will need a confirmation code to use it and the confirmation code (otp) always goes to that no. which is registered with Aadhar card . And if we not share otp with any one ,then no anyone will misuse it .
So it is your responsibility to how can you keep it safe.
|Hitesh Yadav said: (Nov 30, 2020)|
We all discuss here- the Aadhaar database is secured or not.
With the scheme of one nation one card. " Aadhaar card " becomes the most valuable identity of every citizen of the India which is secured by uidai because our Aadhar card contains the biometrics which means it is the indirect form of a credit card after all that in case our Aadhar card is insecure after that we feel safe because hackers also need a one time password to take access in anybody account so in short words, I want to say that if we are alert every time then nobody has enough power to harm us.
|Shiv said: (Nov 20, 2020)|
|Hello everyone good morning all of you.
Now, I am going to put my view on the topic is the Aadhaar database security enough?
First I tell you that it is a good and great initiative by our Indian government to mandatory Aadhar card in every government non-government related service from when the government announced Aadhaar mandatory we all free from tension the carry lots of many types of cards like voter ID ration card and many other and it is a good example of one Nation one card. Through the Aadhar card we withdraw the cash money and transfer it to another bank account without bank passbook ATM or other bank related information because Aadhar card attached in our bank account.
Thanks, thanks a lot.
|Sunny Kumar said: (Nov 17, 2020)|
|In my point of view, Addahar database is secured because every man has its Aadhar card and it has its own identification no. So if a man tries to use another person Aadhar card, he cannot get success. So there are fewer possibilities for hacking it. But it has its drawbacks also if a man is not aware of its importance he can be a victim of hackers. So, we have to know its security properly.|
|Amit Kumar said: (Nov 15, 2020)|
|Hello everyone, myself Amit Kumar and we have discussed an important topic that is Aadhar card which we have given us nationality of India.
It has very useful in our life like as, taking sim card, bank and used for our personal Id etc. In this way, it is part of our communication system and secured us. So, it an important part of daily life and secure us.
If we discussed the dark things of it. It is not good for everyone because we have given our database to anyone and we hacked of him so it is not secure our life.
|Amresh Prajapati said: (Nov 13, 2020)|
Firstly, thanks of all for giving a golden opportunity to discuss "is the Aadhar database secured enough".
Yes, according to me Aadhar database is completely safe. Because it is made by the central government. Important work is not completed without Aadhar as banking works, railways ticket, and as a many many work.
As we know it has a bar code so it is secure for the database. As we know if we want to vo another country, our Aadhar is very important.
Aadhar is a unique identity card. One person has only one Aadhar.
At last, I think Aadhar is the best way to manage any data.
|Ram Swami said: (Nov 12, 2020)|
|Hello everyone, good morning to all.
Now I discuss Aadhar card is secured or not.
In my opinion, the Aadhar card is safe because if we open a bank account, a new SIM, or fill out a form: or other need Aadhar card.
Many times it is hacked our detail because of us, because we give the detail of Aadhar to anyone, due to which our detail is back.
Aadhar card is an important document, we should keep it safe.
Thanks to all.
|Vijendra Kumawat said: (Nov 11, 2020)|
First of all, thank you for giving me a chance to express my views on the topic of Aadhar card system. The Aadhar card gives us an identity of self. In Aadhar card our personal information is mentioned and we can use it a various places like bank and other place. It provided us with more security comparison to voter id by it's biometric.
|Anurag Yadav said: (Nov 11, 2020)|
I am Anurag Yadav today we discuss secured Aadhar database. Today we are complete mostly work to use Aadhar database in the era of 21centuries most field and our necessary work connected with Aadhar like bank education gas connection and other work today our government achieved a lot of success to stop illegal work like black money criminal activities and some others. Thank you.
|Rahul Yadav said: (Nov 8, 2020)|
|Hello everyone, now I am going to tell something about the Aadhaar card. Aadhaar is very important for our daily life because it has our biometric details. Due to biometric details, it is most useful. The Indian government have 1.3 core Aadhaar details. It is very dangerous for criminals, terrorist and illegal persons.|
|Anu Mohanan said: (Oct 12, 2020)|
|Aadhaar has always been in scrutiny. The previous government called it on and the opposition went down heavy on it calling it a scam. They come in power, applaud the move and implement it widely. Now the previous government leaves no opportunity to accuse the security of the Aadhaar database.
The project went big in India. Everyone got pretty serious about it. Last month a report started doing rounds that there was a breach in the Aadhaar database and the information was used to issue SIM cards. Some people were arrested in this matter and everyone started getting curious about how secure the database that contains the record of the entire Indian population is. A recent report suggests that there wasn't any breach at all.
|Adarsh said: (Sep 10, 2020)|
This topic is very relevant to our daily life. In our daily life, we used Aadhar card many of the times like for bank related works, for sim card or any other documentation. In Aadhar card our basic information is mentioned like name, address, contact number Etc.
And yes it is more secure with a comparison with previous voter id because of the fingerprinting facility. No one can use your identity without your fingerprint.
In spite of that, we have to more aware of these things. However the government of India always broadcasting news about that don't give your any type of information to any stranger.
Because with the development of technology hackers and thieve also becoming more cunning they are also using different methods of hacking your valuable money and document.
So as a conclusion this is the more convenient id proof of every person.
Jay Hind !
|Aditya said: (Aug 30, 2020)|
|Hello everyone, today we are going to discuss about Aadhaar security.
According to tome Aadhaar is convenient but not secure enough. Aadhaar contains 3 types of information, first your biometric, second your identity, and the third your personal information.
According to CIDR regulations first 2 are under security. But that is not so much true in the third case.
Initially in the Aadhaar act section 8 while accessing the information the form of consent was only yes or not which provided the receiver with the identification information but after the act was revised there were more options which include your personal information (your call history, what you buy, where you go etc) yes this is mentioned in the form but who gives a detailed read to the I agree on statement box.
This is used as a commercial tool for making money.
So, I think Aadhaar is not secured enough to use everywhere and violets the act of privacy to some extent.
|Div said: (Aug 27, 2020)|
|Hello everyone thank you for giving me this oppurtunity.
According to me, now the aadhaar card database is more secured when compared to previous database because now they are using fingerprint scanner for everytime a user needs to access the information of aadhaar card holder which is directly linked to his/her number and otp is also being sent to the user for making it more authentic.
|Aditya Ardak said: (Aug 21, 2020)|
|Aadhar has become a crucial part of our life in India and a reason to be an Indian citizen.
Advantages of Aadhar:
* Aadhar has become a unique identity for every Indian citizen.
* Using Aadhar, official work gets detailed information of address and personal proofs.
* Linking Aadhar to different banks and government offices enabled sharing of data to unique
* Ease of registering personal mobile numbers using Aadhar card.
* A common basic identification format on card enable quick verification of address, name,
photo and birthdate of a person.
* Updating personal details on government sites has became easy to edit for all government
Is it secure?
* According to right to privacy, government acts opposite to the rights.
* Colleges, institutions and various fields asking for Aadhar details have access to basic
information of us.
* Losing an Aadhar card means losing of our personal information.
* Buying something using someone else Aadhar details is an offence but yet this is not yet
secured because usage or linking Aadhar doesn't send confirmation mail or SMS to the
* It has high risk of personal data leakage.
Solution to the problems:
* Government should use it as only basic info container instead of allowing linkage of Aadhar
to private institutes and various places.
* After losing Aadhar card, a quick link to disable the card should be available and a new card
should be generated simultaneously after a period of time.
* Mobile application giving access to our personal Aadhar card must be launched to link or
unlink un-official's places.
* Sharing of data to any official or unofficial should be transparent for person.
Concluding this topic has given us a brief information about how harmful a data breach could be if government doesn't improve Aadhar security issues.
|Praveen said: (Aug 6, 2020)|
|Aadhaar Cards distinguished by Government to recognize as a denizen. It establishes by the Central government. It's eternally secure. For illustration, if you desire to change your address it's not the simplest one. It's fully conserved by OTP. But a hacker can go sky scraping if they strive to get the information. It's not the easiest one also extremely.|
|Gaurav Tiwari said: (Aug 1, 2020)|
In my view, yes for some extent only because for the database we have to see things like cyber hacking why I'm saying because we know our Aadhar no. Is linked with mobile in today's era it not a difficulty thing to hack a mobile. So I think our country cybersecurity is more important before linking our data with aadhar. Finally in conclusion, I want to say that aadhar is good option for database but before we have to build our cyber security.
|Pooja said: (Jul 31, 2020)|
The topic for today's discussion is Aadhar Database secured enough according to my point of view to handle database of such a populated country Like India is not a small deal therefore to make the information of a person at one place government came to a solution and introduced aadhar which contains every information of a person from it's phone number to Email Id to his finger printd to Address and much more.
Having these credential information one might think of its security because this is the time when technology is enhanced therefore made some garbage like persons called crackers who steal the data and sell on the deep web one picture, one Id will have handsome amount un deep web. But the main thing for every government safety of it's citizens are more prior than anything else and having aadhar database is the work initiated by the government so we can consider it to be safe.
|Abhilasha said: (Jul 30, 2020)|
That is the most relevant topic we can discuss. Yes, Aadhaar database is secured its make our work so an easier hacker can't hack our details without knowing our OTP.
But we can't say it's only enough for our security because many people change their mobile no. As per the company offer and if someone gets our Aadharcard they can easily collect our information.
|Govinda said: (Jul 23, 2020)|
|I think the Aadhar Card is secure But not completely useful for everyone. Some people in our country buy a new number every 2 months. They have an unstable mobile number they need an offer from the company. Like jio sim company disabled people problems in our country, many people don't have personal mobile that's a problem.
|Amrutha Jose said: (Jul 20, 2020)|
|In my opinion, Aadhaar card database is secured because it is protected by government. All transactions take place using Aadhaar card requires one time password send to the users mobile phone. So, it ensures security of Aadhaar card database of users.|
|Aman Thakur said: (Jul 18, 2020)|
|Aadhaar made our life more easier. The given database is launched by the Indian government and hence it is FULLY SAFE AND SECURED.
Yes, one can access to your aadhaar information but only after sharing the OTP on the given mobile number.
It is better that you keep your OTPs secret.
|Saraban Tahura said: (Jun 20, 2020)|
|Hi. My name is Sara.
And today we are going to discuss the Aadhaar database secured enough?
In my point of view, the Aadhaar database is secured enough. It is a most preferable I'd proof. And it is necessary to link with your phone number and Bank account and other things.
It has a negative side also that is when anyone gets your Aadhaar, no then he can get all information about you & a hacker can hack but not so easy.
|Krithika said: (Jun 10, 2020)|
I am Krithika,
Aadhaar number is secure and independent. Each individual will have unique numbers. Aadhaar contains fingerprints of the person and sometimes it is not safe because it might be misused by using the Aadhaar number.
|Naman said: (May 16, 2020)|
|In my point of view, Aadhaar database is secured.
Aadhaar card was made for ease of people. On Aadhaar card every one has a unique number. This number is used in opening bank account. Due to this the procedure of opening bank account became easy. Our money can be transfer to bank account. This number is fully secured number. According to right to privacy, no one can steal our personal information.
Thus I can say Aadhar is fully secured database.
|Divyansh Patni said: (May 9, 2020)|
Today's topic is the Aadhar database is secured or not.
I consider that the data of Aadhar card is fully secured. Because it is not easy for hackers to hack our accounts or stole for personal details because for all these things they need an OTP code that is on your phone.
That's why it's not easy to hack them.
And our government takes a good initiative. So it is very beneficial for us. And it is used in every field because Aadhar card contains our id password that is used in every field. Such as bank account and in any type of form filling. So it helps us in every field of life. Because with the help of an id password we can do many things. Finally we all thanks our government who takes a good decision for our country.
|Shriya said: (May 6, 2020)|
|Is the Aadhar database secured enough?
Aadhar database is the initiative taken by the government of India, which contains people's basic and biometric information, which is used several times as an ID proof of the people. Now the point is whether the data is secured enough or not. There is no doubt on the security of data as it works under the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority Of India). But if the ID is being hacked it requires identification code which is nothing but the OTP and which is only sent to users mobile phones. And Aadhar is the most used document as an Id proof of people. But the point is, at present newly citizenship bill has been passed by the parliament and the president of India which is now the act. So in that case, the Aadhar database is not secured enough for the identification of people.
|Amarjeet said: (Apr 26, 2020)|
|According to my point of view, Yes Aadhaar database is secured enough. As we know that Aadhaar card is an ID proof of the people which contain people basic and biometrical information that is use in many time as an id.
Now, the point is it safe or not. I think, it is safe enough because it is work under UIDAI (unique identification authority of India) which take care of all the data of the people. All the information of the public kept very securetly no one easly get it but if they hack the id he will need confirmation code which is one time password i.e (OTP) that is come on user mobile which is confirm by the id user.
So, it is safe enough at my point of view.
|Abdul Haque said: (Apr 8, 2020)|
As per my point of view, Adhar database is a good initiative which is taken by govt of India to secure our data related to bank, transaction and to monitor all type of crime such as terrorism, cybercrime which is happening in India and extensively growing. To overcome with this problem Aadhar database is crucial to report all those fraud people easily because Aadhar is mandatory to all Indian and every crucial information is linked with Aadhar and Aadhar playing a great role in public, private and education sector it is a prominent step taken by govt to identify the people who have been living here for a long time but still Aadhar is not sure enough.
Recently the government of India comes up with a citizenship bill which has been approved from parliament and president of India now it is an act to prove citizenship where Aadhar database is not enough to prove whether you are a citizen of India or not so finally we can't say Aadhar is secured enough.
* Aadhaar database is not secured enough to prove citizenship.
* crucial data may be trapped by cybercrime.
* Aadhar is not only to give complete security.
|Shahzaman Khair said: (Mar 16, 2020)|
|Hello, Everyone, I am Shahzaman Khair.
I would like to mention some important aspects of Adhar card. Right now Adhar is the most important documents in India. It was a good initiative by the government. It is useful for every person of India because every individual's details captured in Aadhar through Biometric. Earlier ID cards could be misused by other people for example Sim card registration so in terms of this condition. Aadhar is the most convenient Documents in many parameters and it is secured. It can't miss used by any person. But it is risky because of govt mandates in Banks, Government schemes and many places. Right now cybercrime is common So govt should make a more secure Aadhar database. Then it will be more beneficial for Indians.
|Deepak Kumar said: (Feb 27, 2020)|
First of all, I will say that it is fully secured, no doubt and it should be but as all we know, India is a developing country and there are many programs and programming devices are made day by day by our engineers so its security becomes slightly less cos some hackers purchase these items and use it in wrong way to access others database and other things so, finally I will say that Aadhaar database may unsecured.
|Rahul Malviya said: (Feb 24, 2020)|
First of all, thanks for giving me this opportunity to share my point of view, so today's topic is related to,
"Security of Aadhaar card". Is it secure or not,
Yes from my point of view the Aadhaar database is secure enough, And it is a great decision making by our government to make Aadhaar card is compulsory in every field like in government field, bank accounts, job application forms, etc. So Aadhaar card number is more essential day by day. Everythings is linked with your Aadhaar number like a bank account, And if hackers want to hack your account though Aadhaar number, he or she won't be successful because at the end of the process it required to OTP (one-time-password) and biometric authentication which is the most important part of that. The OTP is sent on your mobile number which is linked through your Aadhaar card. So hackers can't access your OTP without your knowledge, So be aware and keep calm everything will be okay it's secure enough.
|Sharan said: (Feb 23, 2020)|
|I am agreeing with my Friend. They cannot be decrypted easily. As we know that it is in the hands of government officials. Its their duty to protect our details. That unique identifier cannot be misused by anyone.|
|Kshitij Gadge said: (Feb 2, 2020)|
|In my opinion. Definitely,Yes!
*Aadhar signifies Unique Identification for citizens which is completely a confidential database.
*Aadhar Act, 2016 implies All India authenticated identity proof for citizens of India in envisaging benefits from Governmental schemes and Benefits.
*Harsh reality may be that Private firms can misuse the database hence criteria could be made not to allow such firms to assume Adhaar ID of applicants.
*Governmental firms never breach such database with anyone as per the Data Protection Act, 2017. So Consensually everything is secured and can't be disclosed without the consent of individual.
|Deepika said: (Jan 31, 2020)|
|Yes, Aadhar database is completely secured now and recently UIDAI said that there is no single issue with Aadhar database, everything is secured. Aadhar is like an identity card to represent the person is a citizen of India. Everything is linked to this Aadhar like our contact details, bank account and everything so that it will be useful for the government to know who is not paying the tax.|
|Gouri Shelake said: (Jan 22, 2020)|
|Hello friends. Aadhaar is one of the most important Identity for everyone. Nowadays it is compulsory in every field like in government field, bank accounts, job application form etc. Moreover people have their personal information linked to Aadhar so they might be quite worried about misuse of information or they might be thinking that is it safe or not ? So according to UIDAI i.e. Unique Identification Authority of India uptil now there is not a single case of financial loss due to Aadhar. For any Aadhar access we require finger print scanning and two IRIS scan and at the end of all the process we get one OTP i.e.one time password which comes on our mobile number linked to Aadhaar. So looking to all these securities I think Aadhaar database is secured.|
|Pavan Adhao said: (Jan 11, 2020)|
|Yes, from my point of vie, w the Aadhar is secured. The facilities for poors by government are reached through adhar. The curruption rate reduced. As the whole information like address phone no, bank account, is linked with adhar the one can easily know the person and take action against the terrorism.
|Varun Kumar Tiwary said: (Jan 2, 2020)|
According to me, Aadhaar is very safe and secure. It is a very good initiative from the government of India for the identification of the citizen of India and till now almost every citizen has an Aadhar card. It is very safe and secure as to access addhar detail one needs the phone to which the OTP is sent. Moreover to alter the data one needs biometrics to match.
Yes like any other system the Aadhar is getting better day by day and some glitches are present but it absolutely secure.
It has helped in the identification of people easily. It has made sending the subsidiary to poor easy and also decreased corruption.
Thus Aadhar is a very good and secure system.
|Shweta said: (Dec 26, 2019)|
|Yes, Aadhar card is very secure but how ? There will UIDI no protect each n every person profile, identify if in case person is left there Aadhar card there is another security is that to open the Aadhar pdf they given us on mail id or in your phone no one-time password.|
|Abhi said: (Dec 23, 2019)|
|Yes, Aadhaar card no may be publically available but UIAOI claims that Aadhaar is just like any other id like phone no, therefore, is never to be treated as a confidential document. By simply knowing someone's Aadhaar, no one can impersonate and harm him because Aadhaar alone is not sufficient, it requires biometrics to authenticate one's identity. Aadhar launched by the government of India has reached almost every part of India and almost every Indian is registered under it.|
|Swapnil Jain said: (Dec 11, 2019)|
|Aadhaar data is fully safe and secure and there has been no data leak or breach at UIDAI, " the authority said in response to a report based on RTI that 210 government website made Aadhaar information public. . "mere display of demographic information cannot be misused without biometrics, " the statement said.|
|Rahul809240 said: (Nov 16, 2019)|
|Good evening friends,
Yes, the Adhaar card is secured according to my point of view. Because through adhar card we can identify the basic details such as address proof, dob, name, age. We can easily identify the person belong to the citizen of India and it is also useful for the government in recruitment process, bank account, railways reservation, domestic flight, etc.
It is also used to recognize a right and wrong person and protest terrorist attack in the form of security purpose.
|Abhishek Gupta said: (Nov 7, 2019)|
|Aadhaar card provides a unique identification number to every citizen of India. It is a smart step taken by the prime minister for the digitalization of the country.
When we talk about the security of stuff connected to our Aadhar card, Government organizations are working to provide maximum security.
Aadhaar card number can be accessed by anybody but, for various security purposes biometric as well as OTP authentication securities are provided by it which is far better than any other card in India in terms of security.
We can add some other security features in Aadhaar card with the help of various industries government should also give the opportunity to a private organization to add various security features after examining add on features.
Security is a major issue in today's world.
|Hari said: (Nov 7, 2019)|

And it will only be possible if you are a dumbass or idiot. So be aware and keep calm everything will be okay it's secure enough.|
|Urmi said: (Oct 30, 2019)|
|In my point of view, aadhar is secured when compared to other cards. In India, aadhaar is equal to a green card in America. There are no cards that are perfect in database because hacking tricks increase day by day. From this reason, we also update the security in aadhar card also.|
|Rohit Kumar said: (Oct 14, 2019)|
Well in my point of view Aadhaar is secure with some improvements still can be made; no system in the world can be perfectly secure but it can be made effective in improving the system, solving the glitches.
Aadhaar managed by UIDI gives a person a unique number, but that too is biometrically verified. A phone is attached to every Aadhaar card and process required to hack this system. However, being handled by the Indian Government they provide the best possible security but there are always some people who set the trap and there are some who fall in it. It means it much more depend on ourselves how to be aware of such frauds.
|Arun said: (Sep 6, 2019)|

|Aman Singh said: (Sep 4, 2019)|
|Yes, I think it is very secured thing. When we use Aadhar number any purpose as we know our bank accounts gas connection pan card voter I'd all these are connected with that 12 digit number. In Aadhar card, your mobile no is also attached when you access anything through your Aadhar no a notification msg is sent to your mobile no. When you approved that thing then only that service get accessed.
The government are taking gòod care of it that personal information of any individual is secured or not.
|Banupriya said: (Aug 31, 2019)|
|No, Aadhaar database is not secured because with the number of aadhara card we can do lot of things.|

Adharcard was made mandatory from 2014 and It is a good scheme where every individual of India are having their identity through this and is connected to every field thus there is a great need for securing adhar db and fortunately with the help of otp we can secure our data.
Through this we can enjoy the benefits through government schemes.

|The topic given to us is very important as we know that Aadhar card is becoming essential day by day. Most of the things are getting connected by Aadhar card but I think Aadhar card is safe enough. If anyone wants to hack our bank account then he requires OTP so till now there is no such device that can hack your OTP. If you lose your money then you will be responsible for it so be conscious. Hackers can only hack general information that will not be harmful to you.|

|Good morning everyone,
I would like to make a point. What I think is Aadhar was a good initiative taken by the Modi government in 2014.
It was a good move for a step towards digital India. By Aadhar, the government has a database of everyone so that a proper channel would be maintained. As this thing is solely operated by our government of India hence it is completely secured.

Adhar become the important identity for everyone before that voter id were there but it was only for the people who are above 18, but Aadhar is for everyone.

In point of view, Aadhar card database is secure. And hacker can't hack Adharcard database. Because if anyone wants to hack then O.T.P are required to access information. And mobile number is available with adharcard's people so no one can hack. Adharcard is mendatory on airport, any form. But in future may be hack asharcard databse. No technology is invented that can be fined your O.T.P. Thank you.

|Aadhaar database can be hacked easily if a smart hacker wants, but will he get any benefit from this or not? Suppose he get the details from your Aadhaar then what will he do ?, he can only contact you just to get some extra confidential detail which you won't share. The procedure of OTP (one-time-password), secures many networks which creates a barrier for hackers to hack anyone account because at last, they want OTP. Yes, Aadhaar card no may be publically available but UIAOI claims that Aadhaar is just like any other id like phone no, therefore, is never to be treated as a confidential document. By simply knowing someone's Aadhaar, no one can impersonate and harm him because Aadhaar alone is not sufficient, it requires biometrics to authenticate one's identity. Aadhar launched by the government of India has reached almost every part of India and almost every Indian are registered under it. The government has made Aadahar compulsory for many things like a bank account, Pan card and many more. Almost every scheme and programme launched by the government requires Aadhar for it. But don't you all think that the Indian government is making Aadhaar card necessary or mandatory in each and every governing field. And if we are having our PAN card for the transaction of money then what is the need of Aadhaar card for the same, one disadvantage of Aadhaar card is that it is making things complicated.|
|Viplaw said: (Aug 4, 2019)|
In my opinion, Aadhaar card is safe and secured enough, today is the identity of everyone we need it as a primary Identification card.
Previously Voter ID card was used as primary identification but it cannot be made available to a person having age less than 18-year so Aadhar card introduced and it is, of course, safe and secure.
There are some data like address and contact detail can be gained by Aadhaar number but these are not secret data and are shareable.
|Mohit Kumawat said: (Aug 4, 2019)|
Myself Mohit Kumawat.
The topic is Aadhaar database is secure enough.
Aadhar is the main identity of an Indian. It is necessary for many works like as bank works, sim verification, govt schemes etc.
Point is that Aadhar database is secure or not.
It is not 100% secure because we know many hackers can take a high tech. System on behalf of its basic information so nothing is 100% secure but our govt is trying to make it more secure for example link Aadhar with biometric.
But we should careful against fake calls through which they want to know our personal details to break our security system.
|Ekta said: (Jul 27, 2019)|
|Adhaar database is secured enough because if hacker wants to hack his/her details he can hack easily but he can't get much information except contact details or address. If hacker wants more details he will use contact details but it is not useful for them because OTP will be send to that number and that sim or number is not with him so he can't get more details about anyone except their address or contact details.
Nowadays Aadhaar card is mandatory for everything. It is the identity of a person. Now your identity card is checked everywhere it may be airport or station. It is also used in banks for opening any type of account. Now everyone is using adhaar card as their identity card. In my opinion, Aadhaar database is secured enough.
|Ravi Soni said: (Jul 16, 2019)|
|Aadhaar card data is not secure enough. Aadhaar card data can be secure surely if we concentrate it with the #block_chain technology.|

Looking to the bitter side is that they can get your fingerprint, which can't be taken lightly. According to me, the fingerprint should not be an integral part of Aadhaar database of an individual.
One important thing, whenever we go for Xerox and scan, we forgot to delete our files from owner's PC, this shows our lack of awareness if that owner wants to create some issue in your life he can create.
So, I want to say that please be aware at that point of time.
At last, it solely depends upon the individual how smart he is to secure his database by not sharing any of his Aadhaar details to fraud calls and most importantly the OTP.
|Balaji said: (Jul 7, 2019)|
Every coin has two sides like that Aadhaar has positives and negatives.
Positive side might be linking to bank account linking for all such activities but if their database would be hacked all data might be easily stolen by hackers anything and everything might be stolen (data) so security measures must be taken for securing enough and Aadhaar has also a good thing if anyone lost or someone is missing we can use the data and find the person easily easy identification.
|Khushi said: (Jul 3, 2019)|
First of all, Thanks for giving an opportunity to share my point of view so today's topic is related to "security of Aadhar card ". Is it secure or not?
As far as we know UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) is responsible for issuing aadhar cards in India. Recently RTI (Right To Information) which is fundamental right under Article 19 (1) of constitution claim that biometric database is being accessed by foreign firms but UIDAI refuted all allegations related to this and said that Aadhar biometric information is protected by best available security and data is stored in its secured centre no one even employees can access that information. There are also some firewall and software to ensure no incident happens.
Whatever it is, let's discuss some problem we might face in daily life.
1. TRAI (Telecom Regulatory authority of India) chairman RS Sharma challengers hackers to hack aadhar number publicly on Twitter. Within one hour hackers put bank account details, Pan card number, mobile number. So we can see it is safe and secured it's his fault who gave his aadhar number. But one I want to drag your attention that supposes hackers find your details but they can't do any harm until or unless you give OTP (One Time Password) because for any transaction they need OTP and they can't access your phone without your knowledge this could be possible if you are dumbass. Nowadays there is no such technology invented that will help you to find OTP without concerned people's knowledge. So be aware and be conscious everything will be fine.
|Panku said: (Jul 1, 2019)|
As far as, Aadhar card is concerned, it's a unique identification of Indian citizen. Aadhar card database is a huge collection of personal records. By using highly authenticated and secure technology it is still trying to make the database of Aadhar more secure and safe.
But due to more usage at a number of places and also due to the alarming rise in hacking activities it is not totally secure.
As it is highly confidential, proper encryption schemes should be used to make it secure.
|Rajni said: (Jun 29, 2019)|
|I think that the Aadhar number is good scheme started by the government for the unique identification of a person. If we think that it is the generation of technology and nothing Is secure because of hackers then could you please tell me what is secure in this world? Nothing. Today everything is running with the technology. Are we think when shopping online and giving the credit card details. Is it secure? No. We all know about that but we do. Is storing the information in the registers is secure? No. So nothing is secure. And if this scheme was made by the government, then they also think about the security of this. If hackers can hack the information then hackers also can protect the information. Today if we need any govt or other services then we just need an Aadhar card. So, I think it is good as well as a secure scheme by the government. Thanks.|
|Amit Yadav said: (Jun 22, 2019)|
|UIDI Number of Adhar card means a unique identification issue number given by the central government and according to its aim that every person gets equal and a unique number by which he can allocate to an Indian.
But some of the day's technology is to differ which causes much-unsecured activity which effects this will lead to personal damage to their personal detail's.
According to the source, there are about 1lakh cases were registered effects to cause the hacking and such activities which user don't want.
My point of view Aadhar database is now not a secured enough we need to do more things related to it's privacy.
|Vidhan Shukla said: (May 31, 2019)|
|I think Aadhaar is very important for all person for id proof but is not 100% secure site because of some days.
UIDAI SITE will be hacked and all data will leak so in my point of view it should not be linked with a banck account only it can be used for id proof.
|Dheeraj said: (May 29, 2019)|
|First of all, I thank India bix for giving this opportunity to share my views regarding this aspect, well according to my point of view adhar card is a unique identification of every citizen in India, it tells all prominent aspects of person, it is linked with bank accounts, when we talk about security aspects it is not 100%secure because our adhar card is linked with various banks, it may reach to hands of hackers, one example I just want to say which was happend in my real life, I think it was on the month of June 2018 a person called me and told all the details of my adhar card, I was really panic at tht tym, and he demanded 5 lakh of money in case if I don't pay him, he said I will hack your money in your bank account, I went to police station and informed all this, so from then when ever there is a need for me to give adhar details, I used to think twice, so one thing I want to suggest to you all think twice before giving your adhar details to anyone.|
|Rashi said: (May 21, 2019)|
|Well, Aadhar database!
How much efforts and tricks we do hackers will have their own way. So, if we are really scared of securities we might use our shopping apps, fooding apps, & other unnecessary apps. We do use those because we know how to not fall for fake sites. We'll aadhar database is much useful for anyone who needs it. Instead of showing all our identities altogether only thing Aadhar anywhere in India. Isn't it cool? The database is secured surely if it takes secular biometrics which never had a chance of replacing.
|Satyamsaini said: (Apr 30, 2019)|
|Aadhar is a 12 digit unique identification number issued to Indian citizens by the central government for availing various services.
1. According to me, Aadhar database is not fully secured. I will support my point with the statement that when TRAI chairman challenge on Twitter by giving his Aadhar number. Much of his personal information leaked out.
2. If Aadhar card is linked to bank accounts. The bank details can be leaked thus result in stealing of money.
3. Many agencies are trying to make fool of people by making fake Aadhar card and get out all the details from them which are not even as per the rules of the government.
4. I will support my point with another statement that somewhere I news I heard that an agent on WhatsApp is providing a username and password for hacking into UIDAI website and get access to information. And for further 300 rupees, Aadhar card printing can be done.
5. As this database is very massive that's why if any mistakes happen in storing data of all the citizens can be very risky.
|Dadi Lavanya said: (Apr 25, 2019)|
|In my point of view, the Aadhar card is very useful. By using this, to show our identity. But when the aadhar is linked to our bank accounts, mobile no that is not securable. Some hackers may be trying to hack our information.
In some times, Our data is given to bank accounts, that is a real problem for all of us, especially for girls. Because girls mobile no, photo all are there. So, Aadhar data is not given to any accounts.
|Subrat said: (Apr 12, 2019)|
|First of all let me tell you one thing that "no one is 100% perfect in the world" and in the technical world replace the word "perfect" with "SECURE". OK I think Aadhaar database seems to be secured enough still but you can not say that it is the best option in terms of security because "RULES ARE CREATED TO BREAK" as a technical student I know that everything in the technical world can be hacked by applying mad algorithm and hackers try to crack that regularly. That's why Govt thinks to add biometrics system on Aadhaar card to make more securable and that p[roves that still Aadhar is not secured enough, Just think about it. Thanks.|
|Ankit Gupta said: (Apr 1, 2019)|
|As India, is a developing nation and is developing its cybersecurity system but from earlier times till we are dependent on other countries for technology so its a great risk for our countries database that's why Aadhar data is not secured enough and make hacked easily by hackers as we don't have control over it but after creating our own security system it might be secured enough.|
|Rajdeep Roy said: (Jan 28, 2019)|
|Aadhar database is just like any other database like our email database, Facebook database and even bank account database. There are instances of hacking of every type of databases like email, Facebook accounts and even bank accounts.
The fact is that hackers are always finding new ways to hack into the most secure databases of the world. So, just as hackers are growing smarter so too cybersecurity expert must continuously work on improving the security of our databases.
Therefore Aadhar databases must continuously adapt newer security measures to ward off the growing army of hackers who are getting smarter day by day.
Also, in addition to that, I would like to add the scenario where one links his mobile number to Aadhar card. We buy a new sim etc and give our consent to Telecom companies via our fingerprints and otp to share our Aadhar details with the company. Now it is also up to the Telecom companies to provide for security measures so that hackers don't have access to our Aadhar card from the Telecom companies database.
Most of the hacking news about Aadhar card, on further investigation revealed that there was lack of security measures on the Telecom companies database.
|Rishi Pandey said: (Jan 27, 2019)|
|The step was taken by the government to provide every citizen a unique identification number which we call it as an Adhaar card. But the biggest question arises that is it really secured enough? So according to me, the Aadhaar details are not fully secured because day by day cyber crimes are increasing with the increase in the technology and there are many hacking agencies which can access these codes. But it is very common because if you are sharing your numbers also, the leakage of information also involve in it same as here as well there will be some cons and our government is also working in it so that it will be secured in coming time.|
|Khushi Sahu said: (Jan 22, 2019)|
|Aadhaar is a 12-digit unique identification number issued to Indian citizens by the Central government. It is issued and managed by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI).
Aadhaar card is essentially an identification document issued by the UIDAI after it records and verifies every resident Indian citizen's details including biometric and demographic data.
Aadhaar is not meant to replace existing identification documents like PAN, passport, driving license etc. However, it can be used as a single identification document.
Banks, financial institutions and telecom companies can also use it as a Know-Your-Customer (KYC) verification mode and maintain profiles.
Opening Bank Accounts.
Aadhar Cards can come in handy when opening a bank account. The document can be used for KYC, identification and verification purposes. Financial institutions and banks consider Aadhaar Cards as a valid address and photo ID proofs during the time of opening a bank account.
Disbursing Provident Fund.
Individuals who link their Aadhar Card to their Pension Accounts can have their provident fund disbursed directly to their accounts through their PF organisation.
By linking the Aadhaar number to the 17 digit LPG ID, users will be able to avail the LPG subsidy directly in their respective bank accounts.
|Charles said: (Jan 22, 2019)|
|I think the Aadhar database is secure until one gives his own detail to the public. For example if I give my phone number here then am exposing my detail to all of them until that no one knows our phone number same like government database is safe but its depend on the other vendor like networks and other sectors who do not protect them recently TRAI lead has posted his Aadhar card number online in a challenging manner to hacker to hack his details and that lead to his data leak. That's what I have pointed out in beginning information is been passed out only from actual owner knowingly or unknowingly. After that court has reclaimed the order to mandatory for Aadhar to banks that's a good move by them.|
|Yogesh said: (Jan 19, 2019)|
Here we are discussing that is Aadhaar card secured enough?
Actually, Aadhaar database has information on our residence, our mobile no. Our D.O.B. (mainly Aadhaar card is used for this) and our biometric sign. Sometimes we give Aadhaar card no. To do our work and with it we give our biometric sign also. But some fraud people disuse that our information.
For example, I remember one incident of my life, my friend went to renew his sim and he was requested to give his Aadhaar no. With his biometric sign but that time that man kept his biometric sign separately and that man used that biometric sign of his paytm kyc. When my friend thinks to his paytm kyc it shows " you have already use this Aadhaar no. With other paytm account. And now there is no way to find who is using his Aadhaar card.
|Tushar Kumar said: (Jan 10, 2019)|
|I don't think that the Aadhaar database is secured because all the data are maintained in electronic form and so any person can steal data if there will be any problem in security. And there was also a case of paytm where all the data of the customer is stolen by women and she said that she'll leak the data so there is always a chance of leaking of data.|
|Dr Paras Kothari said: (Jan 10, 2019)|
|Like every database, Aadhar is also enough secured, but unlike others, many persons try to breach the security of ADB. Unique Identification Authority of India (UIAOI) is also ensuring about the security and third party access of data inculcate in ADB. Some persons who wants to oppose just to put their view in public and with improper information are opposing for this. I think all the services of public domain should be attached with this so life would be more globally accessible as well as more comfortable.|
|Sanjeet Kumar said: (Dec 28, 2018)|
|According to my points of view, Adhar database not 100% but mostly secured because UIDAI is continuously updating its security parameters looking new threats in cyberspace.
As we know that in Aadhar database Name, address, fingerprint and the facial photograph is kept recorded only besides other information about the family, bank account details, financial, property details will never have recorded in the database,
As we give Aadhar number to the bank, a mobile company, they only send Aadhar number and biometrics to UIDAI for verification for identity only thought they do not send bank account details, so we can say that Aadhar is more secure and trust than another identity in India.
|Anand said: (Dec 17, 2018)|
|The aadhar database is not secured enough since a security researcher brought to the notice that the demographic data of over five lakhs people were leaked on a website. The website were immediately closed but this shows that the data is not secured.
UIDAI itself lodgeg complain against axis bank to use biometric which is violation of aadhar act. Also the peoples whose biometric was used were not informed. All these shows that UIDAI has to work hard to secure aadhar database.
|Pushpa said: (Dec 4, 2018)|
|In my opinion, Aadhar uses every field. Aadhar hacking is not easy but day by day cybercrime are increased Aadhar is not secured.|
|Ali said: (Dec 3, 2018)|
|It's a good initiative taken by the government to make Aadhar card for everyone. But then there is a question mark about is it really secure? The system should be such that only user n authorities (not everyone. Only selected like 2 or 2 in town) can get access to data. It has been noticed that some other agents can also access data to make policies, pan card etc. This factory makes the Aadhar database unsafe. And secondly increasing cybercrime can tend to steal and manipulation of the database.|
|Debasish said: (Nov 17, 2018)|
|Aadhaar is a unique identity in India which requires everywhere for every purpose. It's good decision taken by govt to link Aadhaar to a bank account, pan card, even Aadhaar is like identity card of India. This decision is very Resultable for the age is below 18. Because this category doesn't have any identity of India. As per my view, Aadhaar card is one of the most important factors in this era of digitalization as most of the people do their banking activities online and things are much simple now. We don't have to carry a bunch of paper if our Aadhaar is linked and it can be done Easily.
So, moral is that Aadhaar is the best thing to grow our country only we have to implement more security for that.
|Mani Sorout said: (Nov 12, 2018)|
We can not judge that Aadhar database is secure or not.
However it is in our hand. Aadhar is a secure Id if we use it only in some useful places like as in government offices but this may be insecure if we use Aadhar everywhere such as if we are going to buy a new sim we use Aadhar to activate it but the government denies you to use Aadhar because it may be insecure for you.
|Shradhanjali Khatei said: (Nov 6, 2018)|
As we have seen in the past few months that there has been a sudden surge in cybercrime rates throughout the world so it is natural that one may doubt one's security while transacting online or providing one's Aadhaar number for any purpose because our Aadhaar card has got all our personal information about our residency and our contact numbers. But we are overlooking this fact that our Aadhaar is a 'biometric card' which has our unique fingerprint on it and nothing is more secure than our own fingerprint. If our Aadhaar card gets stollen somehow still that person will not be able to get access to our bank account without our own biometric access or an OTP. This data has been released by the authority itself. So no one can get access to our information unless he/she gets our permission by accepting the OTP or fingerprint scan. And if by any chance that person opens our bank account just by the Aadhar number then in that case that bank will be held responsible. So, I would say Aadhaar database is highly secured. Thank you.
|Suzi said: (Oct 31, 2018)|
|Aadhar database is a important database for under 18 generation because they have no identity card. But I think this is not a secure database. At the present days, the Aadhar is linked with our bank account, mobile number etc. If it is lost then we face many problem.
So, I think it is not safe for us.

One issue happened last month that one small boy rescue by just because of Aadhaar card.
But on another side, we have to secure firmly this. Because our every information are linked with Aadhaar if someone stole our Aadhaar then it is very easy to hack our personal Information because they can easily know about our DOB.
So moral is that Aadhaar is the best thing to grow our country only we have to implement more security for that.
|Deepak said: (Oct 27, 2018)|
|I am not totally in favour of Aadhar card database not totally against because if government is linking Aadhar number in all things then it is good government has all the detail about that particular person but government has to take responsibility of their personal data because it can be easily misused by anyone.
|Praveen said: (Oct 25, 2018)|
|Of course Not!
Each and everyone's details are linked with the Aadhaar. Though it may be easy to carry instead of carrying a bunch of documents, think that. If the Aadhaar number was leaked Anyone could get and access your personal details. They know the mobile number, your address your dob. They should be very safe. But Aadhaar just let it to common people and pits everyone in danger. Anyone could access your bank account if it was linked with Aadhaar.

|Hi guys, myself sam.
As per my view, acard is one of the most important factor in this era of digitalization as most of the people do their banking activities online and things are much simple now. We don't have to carry bunch of paper if ourt addhar is linked and it can be done. Easily.
Recently It was in news that a small baby was lost and someone identified him because of addhar card.
So, It's very good for the digital India.
Is the Aadhaar database secured enough?
