FAQs on mAadhaar

Everything you wanted to know about mAadhaar but were afraid to ask:

  1. Can I have an Aadhaar profile on more than one mobile phone?

No, you cannot your profile on more than one device. If you purchase a new phone and insert the SIM card in it, the profile on your older phone will be deleted and become inactive. So you will not be able to access your profile on the other device.

  1. How many profiles can I add in my mAadhaar app?

You can add up to three profiles in your Aadhaar app, which will need to have the same mobile number. For example, if you and your family have the same mobile phone number registered in their Aadhaar numbers, you can add their profiles to the mAadhaar app.

  1. I don’t have a registered phone number. Can I use mAadhar without the registered phone number?

Unfortunately, no, since the OTP needed to operate the mAadhaar is sent only to the registered mobile phone number. If your number isn’t registered, you can always visit your nearest Aadhaar enrolment or update centre and get it done.

  1. What is TOTP?

One of the features of mAadhaar is TOTP or time-based one-time password. TOTP can be used to make changes in your profile. This is generated by an algorithm and is valid only for 30 seconds. One advantage of this is that you are not dependent on the mobile network, unlike the SMS-based OTP.

  1. How do I set the language on the mAadhaar app?

You can use any one of the 13 languages for your Aadhaar app. To do that, go to `More’ at the bottom right corner and select `Language’.
