Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has recently launched a new update to its mAadhaar app for iOS and Android users. This new update enables all the Aadhar cardholders to access their Aadhar ID details on a single-window for all Aadhar related online services on their smartphones.
UIDAI, in a tweet, said, "Uninstall any previously installed versions of the mAadhaar app from your mobile. Download and install the New mAadhaar App."

The updated mobile app makes it easier for cardholders to carry their 12-digit unique identity number in a digital form. The new app provides important personal information like -- Name, Gender, Photograph, Date of Birth and Address on a smartphone and is available for download on both Android's App Store and IOS' Play Store.
Additionally, the government is also encouraging the use of this digital mAadhaar app for availing all Aadhaar-based services. With the newly updated app, Aadhaar cardholders can easily lock or unlock their biometrics identification services at any time. Moreover, the app can also be used for getting the OTP directly from the app. However, the OTP will only be valid for 30 seconds.
The new mAadhar, after the latest update, has features like sharing Aadhar details with the others. Users can also get a new Aadhar card directly from the app and check Aadhar authentication history.
The new mAadhar app shares your Aadhar details through a QR code (virtual ID), which is generated for a limited time. Additionally, to get a new Aadhar card printed from the mAadhar app, under the 'Order Aadhar Print' option, one has to provide required Aadhar details for verification process and make a payment. The new Aadhar card will be delivered to the user's address.
