- Developer's notes: mAadhaar-UIDAI’s official App for Aadhaar holders with an array of services
The key features in mAadhaar:
Multilingual : In order to ensure the Aadhaar Services are accessible to linguistically diverse residents of India, the menu, button labels and form fields are provided in English as well as in 12 Indian languages (Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu). After installation, the user will be prompted to select any of the preferred languages. However, the input fields in the forms will accept data entered in the English language only. This is done to help the user avoid facing the challenges of typing in regional languages (due to limitations in the mobile keyboards).
Universality: Resident with or without Aadhaar can install this App in their smart phones. However to avail personalized Aadhaar services the resident will have to register their Aadhaar Profile in the App.
Aadhaar Online Services on Mobile: The mAadhaar user can avail the featured services for themselves as well as for any other resident seeking Aadhaar or related help. The functionalities are broadly grouped as :
o Main Service Dashboard: Direct access to download Aadhaar, Order a Reprint, Address Update, Download offline eKYC, Show or Scan QR Code, Verify Aadhaar, Verify mail/email, retrieve UID/EID, Request for Address Validation Letter
o Request Status Services: To help resident check the status of various online requests
o My Aadhaar: This is a personalized section for Aadhaar holder where the resident will not have to enter their Aadhaar number to avail Aadhaar services. In addition, this section also provides facilities for the resident to lock/unlock their Aadhaar or Biometric Authentication.
Aadhaar Locking – Aadhaar holder can lock their UID/Aadhaar number anytime they wish.
Biometric locking/unlocking secures biometric authentication by locking biometrics data. Once the resident enables the Biometric Locking system their biometric remains locked till the Aadhaar Holder chose to either Unlock it (which is temporary) or Disable the Locking system.
TOTP generation – Time-based One-Time Password is an automatically generated temporary password that can be used instead of SMS based OTP.
Update of profile – To updated view of Aadhaar profile data after successful completion of update request.
Sharing of QR code and eKYC data by Aadhaar Number holder helps Aadhaar users share their password-protected eKYC or QR code for safe and paperless verification.
Multi-profile: Aadhaar holder can include multiple (up to 3) profiles (with the same registered mobile number) in their profile section.

Ratings and Reviews
1 ★ Keeps stating that somebody else has registered the same profile in another device, and then it removes the profile from the app completely. If we keep trying at that moment, the same thing happens a few minutes later. I observed that this issue is occurring whenever Aadhaar is used for authentication like say at the bank for bank linking and for filing income tax, etc. Whenever such authentication is done, VID is changing automatically after sometime leading to above said confusion in the app. App never shows the new VID that got generated automatically. Thank god we have SMS services that we can use to verify the same, and do the basic lock and unlock whenever required. App is hopeless, many times says bad request, server problem and other such problems. Poor app! It is always having some or the other issues.
1 ★ Application not working properly , worst application and website also not working when I'm tried demographic update after uploading document then show preview option after click not showing payment option , I have contacted call center but not use , I have tried many browsers and cleared cookies cache but not use same problem last day yesterday to this day.
1 ★ This is extremely disappointing since I am facing the same issues as everyone else and these issues are going on for a long time. While all the responses are basically copy pasted. It's almost as if the government made the app just to tell it's there but don't care about it anymore despite it causing the same issues for multiple people. In hindsight it's extremely disappointing almost like all the other services provided by the government
1 ★ This app is just useless. Whenever I try to change my Aadhaar card address online in it just buffers and at last it shows that the server is not working and things like that and the website is also useless whenever I try to change address there I fill up the address and upload the proof and when I click on preview, it just shows the address and no option to continue. I would be grateful if these issues are solved.
5 ★ Great application, one of its kind, no one is near to it, but one issue which I have faced, while ordering/applying for PVC card which is latest in offering from UIDAI authority, I have applied for it and my present address is different from my perminant address, now I have not received my PVC card through Indian Post, so please add one option where do you want to receive your Aadhar card or PVC card, so that those who don't live in their perminant address, they can also apply for PVC card.
1 ★ An app which is given by government to use by entire country is should work properly. Every time it asks to register again and again even though I have registered and I am trying to register from the same device not from many devices. I heard one more thing from support team saying one can maintain five profiles. When app not able to maintain single profile then what is the use providing such facility in the app. I hope that the support and development team look into this issue and they fix it.
1 ★ Really It is not working properly. To open the app getting 'bad request'. Not opening the app many tries. And asking for register repeatedly even after already registered many times in the same device and day. Previous App was most probably good. Nationwide the Great concept App should not be like this. Great care to be taken by UIDAI.
1 ★ Completely USELESS just like the system and their portal. NOTHING WORKS!! ABSOLUTELY RUBBISH. Don't waste your precious data over this junk. | 2nd Reply > I've been trying since the last 2 months to update my address online using portal and today by this app, but it's a complete failure. Always shows due to a technical problem your request cannot be processed at the moment. Does this why the app has been created for? To harass people. | 4TH REPLY > 1947 SERVICE is clueless! Help mail no Response
1 ★ Please give options to give negative ratings. Because Thats what it deserves. One * is nothing. Profiles disappearing,something went wrong message and the list goes on.... When this is posted there will be a message we are working on it... Sure They have been working a lot to make it from bad to worst .....
1 ★ Extremely frustrated..... Kinldy look into the following points for improvements: 1. Takes more time to login, 2. Tried to add more than one profile it automatically deleting the existing one. 3. Most of the time it is popping out "technical issues".
2 ★ [From 4.5 star experience then to two star now] Great concept but poor implementation. When you open the app, 3 out of 4 times, it returns, "we are experiencing technical difficulties reaching the servers, please try later" error. It makes you register and re-register again and again. Quite a retrogression from the developer or the server. Be it Locking/unlocking biometrics, downloading or getting TOTP all most all services were seamless in earlier version. And the most generic reply you would get here is that please try again from the developer here. The new app has quite enhanced functions and services but all in vain as long this issue persists.
1 ★ Pathetic. Some bug exist in mainframe of this application. Unable to retrieve, synchronise data from UIDAI server properly. Successfull authorisation, action is very poor. About 1 successful transaction occur in about 25 tries. Hence successful transaction rate is 4-5% only. It removes UID profile(s) automatically in it's mood, glitch. Never generate OTP in one try. UID SMS service in "1947" is more reliable, is accurate every time. Serious repair is required urgently in this application.
2 ★ Why is the "Update address" not functioning and most of the times the App doesn't open. This complaint has been raised by multiple users. Is there any serious working to address these issues. Why should d public run to banks n e-services agencies when he/she has mAadhaar app to serve the same purpose. Pls work these things. Dont let the Country down.
1 ★ Very difficult to use this application as crashes every time Very poorly developed application or it seems your Servr is very low configured, can't take load, Otp verification sucks, application takes time for verification more than allowed time for one otp expiry then it is giving bad request error 16-nov-2020 - Your application sucksssssssssss
2 ★ Just giving 2 stars bcoz I could check my adhar here. But the app is too slow. And we have to repeat the steps again and again. Plz update the app so it can work smoothly. I wanted to download but it didn't work out. Now I want to update my address but it just buffering.I tried restarting my phone, checked my network and on Wi-Fi also nothing changes. App needs a good updation. Plz.
