The Unique Identification Authority of India, which issues the 12-digit Aadhaar cards, stated that Aadhaar holders can store their identities in the Central Identity Data Repository using face recognition. Any demographic or biometric data such as a mobile number or an address, among other things, can be stored.

The central identity data repository is a centralised database in one or more locations that contains all Aadhaar numbers issued to Aadhaar number holders, as well as the corresponding demographic and biometric information and other information in this relation.

UIDAI launched the AadhaarFaceRd mobile app

The UIDAI confirms your identity once the face recognition is successful. To facilitate this process, the authority recently launched the AadhaarFaceRd mobile app, which allows Aadhaar Authentication User Agencies (AUA) to capture a person's face in order to continue with the authentication process. Aadhaar card holders no longer need to physically visit local Aadhaar enrollment centres to verify their fingerprints or scan their iris with the AadhaarFaceRd app. An Aadhaar holder can use this app to verify his or her identity, which is then recorded in UIDAI databases.

“Aadhaar FaceRD App captures live person’s face for Aadhaar authentication using Face Authentication Technology," the UIDAI said in a video accompanied with the tweet.

Aadhaar FaceRD app allow face authentication for other apps

Therefore, the Aadhaar FaceRD app allows a citizen to use the face authentication for several other apps including: Jeevan Pramaan, Ration Distribution (PDS), Co-Win Vaccination App, Scholarship schemes, Farmer welfare schemes like PM-Kisan. The Aadhaar Face Authentication technology has been developed inhouse by UIDAI, the authority has said further.

Users can download the Aadhaar FaceRD app from the Google Play Store and log in to capture their live picture and store the data by following some easy steps.

“UIDAI uses face authentication as a process by which an Aadhaar number holder’s identity can be verified. A successful face authentication confirms that your physical face which is being scanned for verification matches the one which was captured at the time of enrolment when your Aadhaar number was generated. A successful face authentication confirms that you are who you claim to be," the government authority has said on its website.
