Aadhaar is a widespread topic of discussion, from television news to social media hashtags. The 12-digit identification number is in the spotlight with data leaks, patching security layers etc. On the other hand, the government of India has made it mandatory to link Aadhaar with the mobile number, financial documents, and bank account before 31st March 2018.

Over 15 billion Aadhar authentications have been completed to date as per the recent UIDAI report. The fear of data theft is more defined now that authorities have asked the masses to link Aadhaar with different services. The personal information stored on the UIDAI database such as Demographics and Biometrics details requires the database to have a higher level security feature that can combat any type of theft attempts. For this, the authority has come up with different authentication types for service agencies to protect Aadhaar related data:

Aadhaar Authentication History is a service that retrieves the history of authentication transactions made by the users and agencies. It helps track the history of authentication and spot misused verification transactions if any. Users can also discover when an agency would have accessed the different authentication types.
