“No One Can Harm Your Bank Account Just By Knowing Your Aadhaar,” confirms UIDAI

UIDAI or Unique Identification Authority of India took to microblogging site Twitter in order to make the general public aware of Aadhaar card security. The UIDAI said: “Just by knowing your Aadhaar number, no one can cause any harm to your bank account…”

Ajay Bhushan Pandey, the chief executive officer of the Unique Identification Authority of India, had earlier said that the UIDAI is vigilant about data breaches and citizens should not be too concerned even if their Aadhaar numbers are leaked. His comments come in the backdrop of numerous reports of the personal details of Aadhaar holders being leaked.

“Aadhaar number alone cannot be used for banking or any other service.” That is a message from the UIDAI on its website – uidai.gov.in – where the Aadhaar-issuing body has debunked many misconceptions. Just like by merely knowing someone’s ATM card number, no one can withdraw money from the ATM machine, according to the UIDAI.
