Hello everyone,

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.

Thank You!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello Everyone,

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.

Hi everyone!

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.

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.

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.

Hi friend's,

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.

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.

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.

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 time password which comes on our mobile number linked to Aadhaar. So looking to all these securities I think Aadhaar database is secured.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello everyone.

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.

Hello everyone.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

LPG Subsidy.

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.

Hello everyone.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Was used everywhere from getting the SIM approval to linking the bank account, from buying a ration by poor to using it as a proof for getting a room in hotel, etc. It is used everywhere and thus the problem of leakage of data arose as the cyber security in India is not that advanced.

Today the topic on which I want to share my views with you people is "The Security of Aadhar Database".

As we all know that Aadhar is an unique identification Id maintained by UIDAI and comissioned by GOI and because of this particular document we are free from the past hazards of carrying multiple documents for verification, in one word Aadhar itself is sufficient and nowadays necessary to prove your identity.

Now, coming to the database, what does it contain?!

Well again we all know that it contains almost all private documents of a particular individual in association with their digital record of biometric data like finger print and retina print.

From the recent orders it is mandatory to link one's PAN and Bank accounts with their Aadhar number. So, these all are saved there in a digital cloud storage which is secured until a hacker with improved coding skills comes into picture.

Whatever, now lets discuss the possible problems that we may face,

1. The. Pdf version of Aadhar card is usually a password proteced, although the format of the password is same for everyone and its readily available in internet (the format of the password which consists some details that can be easily known like DOB, Pincode of residence etc) , so, its highly possible one can open your. Pdf Aadhar card.

2. Nowadays, there is a new business named data business where they breach the personal databases and share those with their clients, as an example I should point out the recent case of the personal data breach of our very own MS Dhoni (Indian Cricketer) even renowned MNC's like again our very own Facebook is not out of the list.

3. If someday a hacker with insane hacking skills is able to breach the security of the database manager then guess what! All the private details along with the economic details are gone to him/her.

Now, to be practical even after getting this much details they will not be able to do any harm untill you are alert yourself, because for any transactions they will be needing the Otp that has been shared with only your own mobile number. So, if you are dumbass enough to give them that detail then you are wasted, that was your fault too.

Keeping apart the fact that such technology has not been developed till now to read the messages of someone else's cellphone without accesing that.

Till now the technology has been evolved upto the extent that if a particular application is installed in your device then that application can read and send your messages to a third party, so again you need to be intelligent enough to justify which application to keep and which not to.

Remember one thing, we the human built the technology so, this technology shouldn't be more intelligent than us, jokes apart, be alert to have a secured life both in analog and digital world.

We all know Edward Snowden how he exposed the mass surveillance by CIA, he warned UIDAI about the risk of a data breach in a tweet saying that Aadhaar can be a profiting tool for the people who are involved in the data business. Recently a FIR has been filed against The Tribune reporter for exposing a data breach, Snowden wrote that journalists exposing such breaches should be given an award, instead of being probed. He further said that the one who actually deserves to be arrested is the UIDAI. According to an article the Aadhaar data was on sale for Rs 500. There was an incident in which M.S.

Aadhar is a unique identification issued to us by the government of India. It alone is enough to identify a person as it contains your biometrics and retinal scan and all the other details. Thus, it is hard to copy or fake it.

Earlier we had to carry a hige pile of documents to confirm our identity but with the introduction of aadhar cards, it has become quite easier to prove your identity. To open a bank account or purchase a sim card which earlier demanded various documents and thus felt like a complicated procedure but the only thing they need now is the person himself and his aadhar. But since last few months, it has been observed that the government has made it mandatory to link all your accounts and other details with your Aadhar card. Thus making people think that their details might be stolen after breaching the system.

Surely there has been a lot of hoaxes circulating over the internet and other social media platforms regarding the info being stolen but there has been no information about this from the official sources yet. Thus keeping in mind the present records it can be assumed that our databases are secured enough. Also, it can be seen that merely having the aadhar details won't effect you as you also need the biometric details.

I don't think that Aadhaar database is secured because if you see recently that there are number of cases in data of Aadhaar card is leaked. If your Aadhar card is steal then person can easily access the personal information or detail.

Hello friends, Aadhar card is one of the identities of our selves like election card, pan card. Nowadays most of the companies asking for an Aadhar card for a verification. Everyone might have done the paytm KYC process while doing verification also they ask for Aadhar card. Somehow it is useful but somehow it is not. Because the 12 digit number on the Aadhar card may be misused.
