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.|
|Praveen said: (Jul 11, 2019)|

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.
|Sainath Waghchaure said: (Oct 31, 2018)|

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.
|Sam said: (Oct 11, 2018)|
|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.
|Divyansh Patni said: (Oct 6, 2018)|
|Today I am Discuss about Aadharcard database is secured enough. I think there need to doing more work to secured aadhar database. I know that the database of aadhar card is secured by uidai (unique indentityfication authority of india). But it is not fully secured because there are many hackers that hack any Id, and any information that they want to know. And this is very bad situation for that people whose database was stole. Because aadhar is identity for apl persons that have aadhar. And in today's life aadhar is used at all places like opening account, pan card and for voter id, resident prove and for buying sim for mobile and for all this places aadhar card is used so this is very harmful for peoples whose aadhar information is stolen. So, I think authorities want's to make more way to secured aadhar card database. And peoples are also aware for their aadhar card.
|Anonymous said: (Oct 3, 2018)|
|Aadhaar means something which is necessary and it has been popularised in India that it will represents our existence and thus can be used in any of the areas as a proof. The Aadhaar no. 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. And so the leakage of data leads to breach of privacy of every individual so the Supreme Court has decided that it cannot replace the other government proofs such as voter card and that it cannot be considered as a necessary tool.|
|Naga Sravani Tangirala said: (Oct 2, 2018)|
|Aadhaar card is the proof of identity that we are Indian. It is a world wide identification that can be accessed to each and every individual in India but now a days the data base of it not secured. This is because of the government reclassness towards every work. This means what ever they initialize, in the initial stages the actions bwill be taken severe but at the last the government is not at all bothered about its scams. Hence in my view the Aadhaar database is not secured.|
|Charan said: (Oct 1, 2018)|
|But nowadays Aadhaar is necessary to apply anything and each and every activity and recently our high court was announced that Aaadhar is not compulsory for all activities because fraud will increases.|
|Amol Yamgar said: (Sep 29, 2018)|
|It is absolutely correct that the Adharcard data is not secured but there is no another identification proof for children who are in below 18 years.
According to me, Adhardata base is not secured enough. It needed that data will be secure & make one identification proof for all i.e. Adharcard.
|Ankit Warade said: (Sep 28, 2018)|
|But nowadays the high court said that the Aadhar card is not necessary for the sim card, college, school. That is the most imp thing is that the aadhar is not madatory for all the identities.
That from the above discussion it is proved that by the honourable supreme court the data is not secured as high as required.
|Charu said: (Sep 23, 2018)|
|I share my view about Aadhaar data security. The Aadhaar based data is secured by the UIDAI (unique identification authority of India). This is a authority who store the Aadhaar data. As We all know nowdays no possiblities the data is 100%secure because the haker are doing their job very well it not good for anyone. The millions of data are haked so in this case also no surety the Aadhar data is secured but the advantages of Aadhaar card is not carry lots of documents only one card are use anywhere and only one identify is enough.|
|Chauhan said: (Sep 21, 2018)|
|Hello everyone, As per my view, Aadhaar database is not secure enough. Because before some days a news is came on different era about Aadhaar database is not secure. I think government is not recruit more knowledgeable person to take care about it. If it going on like this then one day Aadhaar database will be hacked by hacker.|
|Pallab Sarkar said: (Sep 21, 2018)|
|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.

|Is the Aadhar database is not safe?
some people it is not safe but the database is trying to every minute they are trying built a firewall to be secured the information of people. Manoj Sinha is the telecommunication minister of India. He is trying to secure the Aadhar information for every second to be secure. They are really trying to secure the Aadhar information for people. We can't blame anyone for Aadhar information.No one can create any fake id it is very difficult to create.
|Mama said: (Sep 12, 2018)|
|Personally being a banker I think that Aadhar should not be made mandatory to avail each and every benefits provided by government There are lots of misuses done by it. I see a lot of customers come to bank and complain that their account is debited by some amount. When I enquire I got to know that theie money is debited using pos terminals and CSP. If Aadhar database is safe enough then how can another person can withdraw money using their own credentials. Fraud is also happening using their mobile numbers. So, this is not safe. Its security should be improved.|
|Santhosh G said: (Sep 6, 2018)|
|In my opinion, Aadhar is essential to everyone to avail public services and schemes and to keep an eye on black money circulating to overseas. But when we talk about its security it's below par and the recent incident of TRAI chief creates panic in people.
I say that the Aadhar firewall should upgrade on time with new technology.
The government should encourage ethical hacking and to create awareness among people and need to upgrade fastly with new technology.
And finally need to change security systems once or twice a week.
|Ashu said: (Sep 5, 2018)|
|I think there is noting secure over the net.
Recently, Facebook is also in news for data sharing. Now come to the Aadhaar card.
Recently, one of my friend, made a duplicate fingerprint. And I think it is quite possible to make a fake Aadhaar card.
|Vivek said: (Sep 4, 2018)|
|Realy, is that even a question, everyone knows it's safe right. Main dilemma for many of us is, Is it really that safe to link everything with it, I guess most of us would agree with negation to the question. Creating fake ids in India is actually what everyone hears in news on a regular basis. Dependency on a single id is too risky to take the risk.|
|Piyush said: (Sep 2, 2018)|
In my opinion, Aadhaar card is not safe at all, recently there has been a lot of reports regarding a breach in security of Aadhaar data. 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. Dhoni's personal data was leaked which led to the blacklisting of CSC e-governance services is a perfect example of leakage of personal information due to human errors.
So, in my opinion, Aadhaar is not safe.
|Ajay said: (Sep 1, 2018)|
|Aadhaar is safe as an identity and it is also true that creating multiple Aadhaar cards for a single person is difficult.
But in my opinion, it is not that much safe that it should be.
For example, a person in Telangana state access the database and sell lot's of sim card with fack id.
|Anonymous said: (Aug 31, 2018)|
|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.
|Shubham said: (Aug 30, 2018)|
|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.|
|Ash said: (Aug 28, 2018)|
|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.|
|Ismail said: (Aug 28, 2018)|
The main aim of the Aadhar is to collect our personal details including fingerprint, etc.
We are linking Aadhar with various schemes. Which government forces the people to involve in the Aadhar scheme.
|Ajaya said: (Aug 28, 2018)|
|According to my point of view, Aadhar card database is secure because when someone wants to make multiple Aadhar cards then automatically it will reject the Aadhar card that means government giving full security to the Aadhar database.
And most important thing is that it has biometric security so can easily hack our personal information through Aadhar card easily. It may be possible but not that much easy.
|Akansha Nigam said: (Aug 27, 2018)|
|To talk about this I have checked and found the below information:.
Government states that-.
1. The UIDAI has established two large-scale data centres to ensure complete security of data and applications, and it regularly conducts audits by reputed third-party agencies to keep its systems and processes up to date.
2. Aadhaar platform is built mostly on open source technologies, with propriety technologies being used only where necessary. In general terms, we can say that no private contractors may sell/steal the data.
3. Encryption uses the highest available public key cryptography encryption (PKI-2048 and AES-256).
4. While adopting any propriety software for biometrics, the design approach followed by the UIDAI is to have multiple vendors in an architectural layer, with a payment model put in place such that the vendors are had been given incentives to improve quality, accuracy and speed. These vendors or their services can be replaced if they do not meet stringent service level agreements. More than 100 different companies are involved in groundwork, so that monopoly doesn\'t become an issue.
Having said that, there were a lot of scams happened earlier and many advanced software has many made to steal data. The recent news is "Traders buy bio-metric data for Rs. 15000", but they have been caught as our police was investigating that how they get such software.
With the above information, I feel that the everything is spoof-able. I've read in one of the articles which state that even an iPhone has also promised complete security but it takes just 24 hours by the hackers Mark Rogers and Jan Krissler to unlock it. I'm personally not convinced with the thought that Aadhar database is 100% secured enough.
However, I want to advise some of the prevention:
1. Please don't share your Adhar number with other people.
2. Never share you Adhar copy and if you are using so just self-attest it and mention the reason for which.
That Aadhar copy has been used.
I also want to provide a very useful information here that UIDAI has provided a feature to lock/unlock. You can lock your Aadhaar card after that no one can be able to read that data through anyway, and it's vice versa even you can you can also unlock it whenever it's required.
|Payal said: (Aug 26, 2018)|
|There has been a number of cases where people's data privacy has been breached through Aadhar database. This clearly shows that it is not secured enough. The database is created and stored with the help of biometrics like iris, fingerprints but still it can be accessed by hackers.|
|Maghav Goyal said: (Aug 26, 2018)|
|Aadhar card is a 12 digit unique number that has all the details of a resident of India.
Recently, a news article shared on the internet showed how a French cybersecurity specialist hacked the Aadhar database in a minute. Do you still have doubts over how secure the database is?
Aadhar cards are made even without the presence of a person whom it belongs to, so just imagine how securely it will all work.
A hacker will churn out all the details from the Aadhar database and that person (just a random 12 digit number in the database) will get destroyed.
|Rhea said: (Aug 25, 2018)|
|According to my view, linking adhar with your mobile no. Bank account or any private stuff through which your personal identity and details can be misused and it is not safe because if any one gets your adhar card, thy can easily hack and can get through the personal details.|
|Kriti said: (Aug 24, 2018)|
|Yes, in my opinion.
Aadhar database is secured enough that one can use it free mindly by just keeping few points in mind.
Aadhar has many step verification procedure that reduces the chances of data theft.
Also, the government is working on facial recognition character which solidifies the security further.
So for a secured platform their always need of being it's updation so that it lessens the risk of data theft.
Also, it has interlinked with many other details and mobile no. So that any case can be tracked.
|Samarjit Ghosh said: (Aug 24, 2018)|
|In my opinion, Aadhar is necessary as it uidai have all the detail of the person and for crime purpose or any offense or anything, it is very easy to identify this person. But the aadhar detail is not that much secure as there is a day to day fraud cases of varies aadhar linked thing. Mainly by any chance if someone gets your mobile and your aadhar card, he/she can access the details very easy using OTP in the registered mobile number. Thus aadhar detail is not that much safe government need to keep this data away from the fraud people.|
|Manoj Nogia said: (Aug 22, 2018)|
|Hello everyone, Myself Manoj Nogia.
Well, each person has their own opinion about Adhaar Card Security & in my opinion Adhaar Card is not secured enough. Few days ago one of our Cabinet Minister tweeted his Adhaar card details and challanged someone to hack his account. Few days later, some hackers managed to know his account details and deposited 1 Rupee. And time to time we have seen such type of Adhaar card hacking incidents.
One thing is for sure that we don't need other identification cards as we can attach only Adhaar card as id and it saves a lot of time for people. But security poinnt of view it's not secure enough. I think so.
|Sukanta said: (Aug 21, 2018)|
|Hello friend. I am sukanta.
In my point of view, the database of Aadhar is secure every time because it is not linked to any other database. But sometimes some hacker hacks this database for criminal activities. It is also th responsibility for India government to secure from hackers.
|Antara Saha said: (Aug 20, 2018)|
|Hello everyone I am Antara Saha.
Everyone point of view is different from their sides. From my side, Aadhar Card is useful for us. It can carry unique identification. Person's every identity is included there.
Before some years ago when we want to create our bank account or something like that we need many things but now a days for creating bank account or similar types of things we just only need Aadhar Card. That is much easier. And that will reduces people's golden times. We don't need our others extra ordinary details for all time through only Aadhar Card we can do everything.
|Himanshu Gupta said: (Aug 19, 2018)|
|Hello everyone, myself Himanshu Gupta.
What I feel is for security purpose, linking every single information with aadhaar card is not secured enough, as it will give rise to many cyber crime.
Earlier when government Selected few entrepreneurs for aadhaar card database management few of them misuse their power and sold admin rights for just RS 500. So this means you can access whole data for a very small amount.
|Gurpreet Singh said: (Aug 16, 2018)|
|Hello friends, I Am Gurpreet Singh.
In My Opinion, Aadhaar card is very much beneficial for us and it is mostly used for unique identification authority of India.
While using Aadhaar card, we can also link with passport, LPG connection, bank account etc. Which is issued by government schemes.
So that every citizen gets the benefit of the schemes.
Aadhaar card is just like another identification card which is very much beneficial.
|Sunil said: (Aug 15, 2018)|
|The Aadhar database of our government, is not secure enough. Cyber security experts say, that if any database is connected to a network, it can be hacked. Also, we've seen various cases of data being stolen with only the Aadhar numbers. Also, experts say that the firewall used by the government can easily be penetrated.|
|Ankush said: (Aug 14, 2018)|
|Aadhar database is not secured enough.
The thinking of cybercrime is going too far from the reach of government.
But there is one advantage of aadhar database, in today world all the things are linked with aadhar card in India.
Which gives all information to government.
Let's take an example-before 4-5 years people gave highschool exams many times to decrease age to get government jobs but after aadhar database it's not possible.
|Aditya said: (Aug 12, 2018)|
|The AADHAR was launched for the unique identification of the citizens of India. The current government is trying to link this identification to every public services. All the ban accounts, SIMs, PAN are linked so no one can hide any thing from government There has been many incidents of hacking into personal data through the UIDAI sever, which is a critical falw in the system. Recently the UIDAI has issued guidelines for not sharing the AADHAR number into public domains or social media this shows our secrets are not safe. Hackers are getting all the personal data through this which can lead to any serious criminal happenings with anyone.|
|Ram said: (Aug 8, 2018)|
|Hello Friends, I am Ram.
In my opinions, Adhar card is secure and a good initiative of the Indian government, earlier other identity cards miss used by other persons but now Aadhar card is secure and its accepted after biomatrix verification but it is also riskful for uneducated peoples because Adhar is recommended for every government schemes, bank and many more places.
|Sanya Garg said: (Aug 8, 2018)|
|Saying that Aadhaar card is 100 per cent safe and secure would be a personified statement. No doubt individual's data is stored in the UIDAI software which is then encrypted and thereby preventing data leaks. But recent cases about data leaks can't be ignored as in the case of are S. Sharma and leakages have also occured due to government websites, apps, third party leakages etc. Data leak incident of M. S. Dhoni which led to the blacklisting of CSC e-governance services is a perfect example of leakage of personal information due to human errors. So, Aadhaar is not completely safe.|
|Devarshi Mishra said: (Aug 7, 2018)|
|Hello everyone, I'm Devarshi.
In my opinion, the Aadhar databse is secured as the idea of safeguarding the individuals information is inherent in the UID Project. The data is collected by a UIDAI software and is encrypted to prevent any leaks during the transit.
|Monisha said: (Aug 6, 2018)|
|I agreed with all of you. As Aadhar is basically an identity proof but due to corruption and need for money has made the people corrupted in such a way that these cards are also being hacked. If all this continues, then there would not be a bright future for our country.|
|Alok Panday said: (Aug 5, 2018)|
|It would be exaggerated if I say it is more secure!.
Recently I have listened.
Someone has two Aadhaar number of the same identity. How is it possible? it only possible when data leaks. It does not mean that govt take no step against the security of data. Nowadays UAIDAI has announced about virtual id which will be valid till 24 hours. Everywhere you were asked Aadhaar number then you must be used 16 digits virtual id which is generated by UAIDAI.
|Bhim said: (Aug 3, 2018)|
|As per my views, on this topic is positive for the secure database. If you use your Aadhaar no. Anywhere like when a person buy a sim card, KYC, Banking purpose then it will also send a mail as well as message to the registered email and registered mobile number. It is also secure because of the bio-metric.
|Vishal said: (Aug 3, 2018)|
|Yeah, definitely Aadhar database is secured as it is a unique ID for the identification of people for taking example like in any murder case if the victims face is brutally beaten up and police didn't get information by simply see the body then police can use the Aadhar card to reveal the identity of the person and from our Aadhar card we can identify fake calls too and if there is a bank problem then we can get information through Aadhar too like mobile number and many other things.
Besides these above mentioned facilities Aadhar card also includes various steps to access anything or get information which makes some people even difficult to understand the procedure and if there is an emergency and urgent need of Aadhar card to resolve the problem then I didn't think that not every person would carry his/her Aadhar card in the pocket every time.
|Rushitha said: (Aug 2, 2018)|
|In my perspective, linking Aadhar card nuber is fine to some of the aspects but the acute thing is linking to mobile services having the deadline march 31st is really creating pressure on public.|
|Rakshanda said: (Aug 1, 2018)|
|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.|
|Abhijit said: (Aug 1, 2018)|
|The Aadhaar database is not linked to any other databases, or to information held in other databases. The database is guarded both physically and electronically by a few select individuals with high clearance. There are some criminal penalities for unauthorised access to the database and tampering with the database.
Despite these criminal penalities, ultimate every security system is prone to risk of human error or mischief.
|Magesh said: (Aug 1, 2018)|
It is really useful one that link our Aadhaar with other identities such as PAN card, Driving license, Bank account. Etc. It reduces the fraudsters happened over our accounts. By linking Aadhaar, beneficiary of scheme is particularly given to the people, rather goes to all. Maintain single identity is better compare to all identities to be carried.
|Pushpak Chaudhary said: (Jul 31, 2018)|
|Yes, definitely, it is secured as we can take the example of simcards because earlier there is no restrictions for buying simcards And many of the people misuses this and now we connected our simcards to our Aadhaar card and we can easily detect fake calls also.
As it the unique id given to us by the government of India that can also be beneficial at the time of elections.
But don't you all think that 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.
|Rahul Singh said: (Jul 31, 2018)|
|In my opinion, Aadhaar card is not safe as there is much evidence of breach this year about the security of Aadhaar. Even today Adhaar card of UIAOI chief executive is hacked as he gave his 12 digit Aadhaar card on Twitter challenging hackers that Aadhaar card security is top notch but his bank account is hacked and Rs 1 is added in a bank account so it is safe to say it Adhaar card is not secure.|
|Virtual said: (Jul 31, 2018)|
|In recent days Aadhar is making its place in every news columns by either good or bad ways.
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 the recent news of Aadhar being unsafe for the transaction or it reveals our retails in public had led a question in my mind is relying on Aadhar to this much is good?
Answer will surely be available when our higher authority clearly talk about it and ensure every citizen.
|Gopal said: (Jul 31, 2018)|
Aadhar is the world's most sophisticated bio-metric identification - Word Bank.
As per my point of view, Aadhar is very safe and helpful for people and government. Recently issued about the TRAI head data leak than this issue become national issue but it's totally fack. Are. S. Sharma is Class-I officer so you determine information about him by simple Google search. Also haker's find him details via IIT site and TRAI site.
Main issue is not data storage but a collection of data (Because Aadhar collect data from unorganised form).
Then we do not think Aadhar is 100% safe but definitely, Aadhar is 97% safe as my point of view.
|Mayank said: (Jul 31, 2018)|
|Hello friends. I'm Mayank.
In my opinion, Aadhaar card is safe as Unique Identification Authority of India (UIAOI) has claimed to have not even a single breach from its biometric data since its existence.
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.
And I think that we should not be get confused or carried away by fake news on Facebook or other means of media.
Definitely linking your Aadhaar card with LPG, Bank account, Voter ID, etc that have been made compulsory by the government, so that every citizen can get the benefits through government schemes and more.
Is the Aadhaar database secured enough?
