In addition to having important documents, Aadhaar is also useful as proof of identity. As the use of Aadhar card has increased, so has the incidence of fraud. Anyone can buy a fake SIM card using your Aadhar card. Also, it can be used for many illegal activities. Therefore, care must be taken to avoid any banking fraud. To avoid such financial fraud, UIDAI has also provided facility for citizens to lock and unlock Aadhar card.

UIDAI has informed the Aadhar cardholders about the new facility through its official Twitter account. This allows cardholders to lock and unlock Aadhar card numbers online. Once the Aadhar card number is locked, it cannot be used for authentication. Citizens will have to unlock again to use Aadhaar number. However, for authentication, it is necessary to have VID i.e. Virtual ID. With this Virtual ID you can easily lock and unlock Aadhar card.
