Verify Your Aadhaar-Linked Mobile and Email on Web & App
This latest development from UIDAI comes in the light that Indians are often unaware or confused about the number or email id linked to their Aadhar. This facility will also let citizens update their mobile number and email address if they wish to. But, to link your email id and mobile number with your Aadhar card, you will be required to visit your nearest Aadhar center.
To further explain this facility, UIDAI stated in a statement, “Residents were worried that Aadhaar OTP might be going to some other mobile number. Now, with this facility, the residents can check these quite easily.” You can access this feature via the “Verify email/ mobile Number“ section on the official website or the mAadhaar App. This feature gives confirmation to residents that their email/ mobile number under their knowledge is only seeded to their respective Aadhaar.
