Aadhaar Card has made our life easy by facilitating various online services that earlier required us to go through a complex offline process. Aadhaar is just not any other identity document but it’s our one-stop solution for various services. However, with the ease of doing things, there also comes a worry about the misuse of your details. While the UIDAI has a multilevel-authentication process for using your Aadhaar for any service, you can clear any doubts about Aadhaar misuse by checking its authentication history online.
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the body that manages Aadhaar, gives you an option to check where and when your Aadhaar was used for authentication. To find your Aadhaar history, you just need to visit the UIDAI’s website and follow these simple steps.
