UIDAI launches updated QR code for offline Aadhaar verification

UIDAI has launched an updated ‘QR code’ that holds non-sensitive details like name, address, photo, and date of birth, and can be used for offline user verification without the 12-digit ID number.

The new digitally signed QR code can be read ONLY using UIDAI’s windows based Custom client for desktops/laptops and validate it against UIDAI digital signatures on real time. Therefore, any fraud attempted on e-Aadhaar can be easily detected by using QR Code scanner.

This would be especially handy for establishing the identity with non-statutory entities, say, the likes of online shopping portals when delivering goods (via).
