SEP 09 (WTN) - If you are a citizen of India, then as you know that the Aadhaar card is a very important document for you. You also know that the Aadhaar card data is linked to the bank account and the PAN card. In such a situation, you need to keep your Aadhaar card very carefully, because if the data of the Aadhaar card is stolen, then you may have to suffer financial loss from it.

To prevent the breaching of your Aadhaar card data, the UIDAI has started the facility to lock / unlock the Aadhaar card. With the help of this feature of the UIDAI, you will be able to keep your Aadhaar information more secure than before. Let us tell you in detail how you can lock and unlock the complete information of your Aadhaar card online and offline.

First go to the official website of the UIDAI www.uidai.gov.in to lock or unlock the Aadhaar number online. After visiting this website and then opening the window on the screen, you will see three options in the Aadhaar online service. Among the last of these three options, you will see the option of Lock / Unlock Biometrics on the third number in the Aadhaar Service. To lock or unlock your Aadhaar number, you have to click on this option.

Clicking this option will open a new link on the screen. As soon as this link opens, you will have to enter your Aadhaar number and security code in it. After entering the Aadhaar number and the security code, click on ‘SEND OTP’ given below.

On clicking ‘END OTP’, an OTP will be received on the mobile number registered with the Aadhaar number. Your account will be logged as soon as you submit this OTP. After account login, you have to re-enter the security code and click on ‘Enable’ to lock the Aadhaar card data. By clicking ‘Enable’, you will receive a message 'Congratulation!

To unlock the Aadhaar card, you will have to repeat the process mentioned above; in which you have the option of ‘Enable’ and ‘Disable’ on the screen. To unlock the Aadhaar card, as soon as you enter a security code and click on it; your Aadhaar number data will be unlocked.

This was the way to lock-unlock the Aadhaar card online. You can also lock your Aadhaar card through offline mode. To lock the Aadhaar card offline, you will need to send an SMS to the UIDAI on given number 1947.
