The Unique Identification Authority of India, which issues Aadhaar cards, tweeted about the most frequent misconceptions about the security and privacy of financial transaction data.

One of the frequently asked questions is whether UIDAI receives your financial information when you link your bank account, share, or mobile with your Aadhaar card. UIDAI has attempted to dispel misconceptions about data security and privacy as part of its #AadhaarMythBusters campaign.

UIDAI tweeted, "UIDAI only authenticates/verifies your identity through your Aadhaar and does not hold any financial transaction-related information."

Aadhar Card is one of the most important documents and has many practical uses in Aadhar Card. Given that it contains both your demographic and biometric information, your 12-digit Unique Identification Number from the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has now replaced other important identification documents.

UIDAI in association with ISRO and the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has recently developed this portal, using which you can easily get information about the nearest Aadhaar center. You can do this from the comfort of your home, without having to physically check the nearby Aadhaar centers.
