You may have heard about the QR Code on your daily life, like for download, verification, etc. But you may not expect that QR Code appears on your Aadhar card. Please check out below for more details.

As the technology keeps evolving day-by-day, the UIDAI also try to keep their citizens’ profile safe so they turn all any non-sensitive data into QR Code. Instead of using the conventional 12-digits Aadhar number, user can use this QR Code for offline verification as a safety measure.

A QR Code is a bar code that contains machine-readable information. As the QR Code can be used for offline verification, user can just blacken their Aadhar number so others cannot see it. For example, when you purchase something online and someone delivering the good is standing at your front door, Aadhar holder can show the QR Code instead of Aadhar number for scanning to prove their identity. 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.

FAQs: Verifying eAadhar Card Offline with QR Code

Q: So I can use the QR Code in ANY kind of verification?
A: Yes, you can use the code to prove your identity to any kind of non-statutory entities.

Q: I wish to use the QR Code, how do I download it?
A: As it is said in the article, the code will automatically be printed on your eAadhar Card when you download it.

Q: Which place I cannot use the QR Code for verification?
A: Some places that required your Aadhar number under the law like the bank, telecom companies, etc… user have to go through the normal way of authentication.
