Aadhaar card holders can confirm their biometric identity via the Aadhaar FaceRD app instead of physically visiting local Aadhaar enrollment centers.
Aadhaar holders can store their identities in the Central Identity Data Repository by using face recognition, according to the Unique Identification Authority of India, which issues the 12-digit cards.
In addition to demographic data and biometric data, this can also include information such as telephone numbers and addresses, among other information.
Essentially, the central identity data repository (CIDDR) is a database that consists of all the Aadhaar numbers that have been issued to Aadhaar number holders, along with the corresponding demographic information and biometric information that has been provided to each of them, and other related information.
When the UIDAI is able to recognize your face successfully, your identity is confirmed by the system.
There has been a recent development made by the authority that makes this process easier.
Aadhaar FaceRD App: You can now authenticate your Aadhaar card with your face via the UIDAI App
The Aadhaar Authentication User Agencies (AUA) have recently launched the AadhaarFaceRd mobile application which can be used to capture the faces of people in order to process their authentication.
The AadhaarFaceRd app allows Aadhaar card holders to verify their fingerprints and scan their iris through the app and they are not required to go to the local Aadhaar enrollment centers physically in order to do so.
With the use of this app, Aadhaar holders can get their identities verified by UIDAI, and these records are then added to UIDAI’s database so that they can be verified in the future.
Using the #UIDAI #RDApp, residents can now use various #Aadhaar Authentication Apps like #JeevanPraman, #PDS, #Scholarship schemes, #COWIN, #FarmerWelfare schemes, depending on their needs.”.
Face Authentication Technology is used to authenticate Aadhaar transactions through the Aadhaar FaceRD App, according to a video accompanying the tweet from UIDAI.
The Aadhaar FaceRD app, as a result, enables a citizen to use their face authentication for a variety of other applications, such as Jeevan Pramaan, Ration Distribution (PDS), and Co-Win Vaccination App, Scholarship schemes, and Farmer welfare schemes, such as PM-Kisan.
In addition to that, UIDAI has also indicated that it has developed the Face Authentication technology for Aadhaar in-house.
By following a few simple steps, users can access the Aadhaar FaceRD app from the Google Play Store and download it so that they can capture their live pictures and store their data by simply following a few simple steps.
Aadhaar number holders can verify their identity by submitting their face to UIDAI in order to authenticate their Aadhaar number.
Upon successful verification of your facial features, the person scanning your face for verification confirms that the face that was captured when your Aadhaar number was generated at the time of enrolment matches the one that was scanned for verification at the time of enrolment.
The government authority has stated on its website that a successful face authentication confirms that the person is who they claim to be.
