In this, the identity of the person is attached to the unique number of 12 digits, but if it is found in the wrong hands, then it can be a misuse. If you also have the fear of leaking your personal data, then you can lock your Aadhaar card sitting at home through just an SMS. For this, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is giving special facility.

To lock the Aadhaar card, you have to send a GETOTP SMS from your registered mobile number. After doing this, an OTP will come to your mobile number. This OTP will have to be re-written to the 1947 number by writing ‘LOCKUID Aadhaar Number’. As soon as you do this, your Aadhaar card will be locked. With this, no one will be able to use it without your permission. After this process, hackers will not be able to do Aadhaar verification. So that your base will be protected.
