How To Download A Masked Aadhaar Card Online?

|

Aadhaar is a 12-digit identification number provided by the UIDAI to all Indian citizens. You can mask your Aadhaar number in your downloaded e-Aadhaar using the Mask Aadhaar option. Masked Aadhaar numbers are generated by removing the first eight digits of the Aadhaar number with characters such as "xxxx-xxxx," leaving only the last four digits identifiable. Since the masked Aadhaar will be authorized digitally by UIDAI, you won't have to worry about whether it will be approved or legible. For additional protection and convenience, you can always use a Masked Aadhaar Card instead of your regular Aadhaar Card. Masked Aadhaar can be used in areas where Aadhaar is needed only for identity authentication. According to the Aadhaar Act, an e-Aadhaar, as well as your masked Aadhaar, is as legitimate as a physical copy of your Aadhaar for a variety of purposes. The best thing about a masked Aadhaar card is that after downloading you need a password to open it. The password is made up of the first four letters of your name and the year you were born, as recorded on your Aadhaar Card. In general, the password is the first four letters of your name in CAPITAL, followed by your year of birth in YYYYY. If you have an e-Aadhaar or a Masked Aadhaar you can use it as authentication of your identity as it has all your demographic and biometric details maintained in the UIDAI portal. Hence, if you want to download your masked Aadhaar Card you need to follow the below covered ways.
