As you can see, the Aadhar number is not shown during the entire process of the verification, this will ensure the safety of the citizen.

Non-sensitive information like user’s full name, gender, address, and date of birth together with photo is transformed into a QR Code. While other sensitive data like bank account ID, biometric, etc… is not included in the code. This also means the detail about the Aadhar holder is genuine and not through any mean of tampered documents.

How to obtain the QR Code? It actually very easy since it already integrated with the traditional eAadhar Download. You can see more information about downloading eAadhar here.

As for scanning? User can use the Aadhar scanner application in order to scan the QR Code. Just use any smartphone with the app installed to scan the code, you will receive the information that is in the code on your phone.
