UIDAI alert, to avoid fraud, keep Aadhar card safe like this, do this small work

Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has given advice to avoid Aadhaar Fraud. UIDAI is the organization that makes Aadhaar one of the most important ID cards in India. The 12 digit unique ID card known as Aadhaar is one of the much needed documents in today’s times. Aadhaar card provides vital information about an individual such as his/her date of birth, address and phone number, due to which Aadhaar frauds and scammers often use Aadhaar data to commit crimes.

To avoid this, UIDAI advises Aadhaar card holders to keep their cell phones updated with the 12 digit identification number at all times. Always keep your Aadhaar Mobile Number (Aadhaar Mobile Number Link) updated to protect yourself from scams.

In a tweet last week, UIDAI wrote that ‘If you have any doubts about whether your proper cell phone number or email is linked with Aadhaar or not, you can check it using this link’.

To protect themselves from scammers, UIDAI has advised Aadhaar holders to keep their cell numbers updated at all times. If anyone is not fully aware of linking with their mobile number then they can use this website myaadhaar.uidai.gov.in/verify-email-mobile to verify it.
