The UIDAI uses face authentication as a method of confirming an Aadhaar holder’s identity. When the face authentication is successful, it is verified that the physical face being scanned for verification matches the one that was taken at the time of enrollment when your Aadhaar number was created. If your facial authentication is successful, it verifies your identity.
UIDAI has launched the Aadhaar face authentication RD Service app that allows Aadhaar Authentication User Agencies (AUA) to capture a live person’s face for authentication.
This app can be used for Aadhaar face authentication for various other apps like JeevanPraman, PDS, Scholarship schemes, COWIN, Farmer Welfare schemes.
According to an official UIDAI tweet, “Residents are now using the Aadhaar Face Authentication feature by downloading the UIDAI RDApp, which can be used for various Aadhaar Authentication Apps like JeevanPraman, PDS, Scholarship schemes, COWIN, FarmerWelfare schemes.”
