sorry to hear that. hope it gets fixed soon.I dont know, i will go to the airtel store and get it checked.
Honestly, I didn't know that.
Both the website and the app have been crapping out for the past 4 days as far as I am concerned. The website keeps giving out the cannot connect to backend error. As for the app every time I try to lock my biometric and input the OTP I get a pop-up notification that says my biometric has been locked, but when I check again in the 'My Aadhaar' tab my biometric is clearly not locked.Has the Aadhar website been having issues for other people? Been trying to lock biometrics for a few days now, it just keeps saying couldn't connect to the backend.
Did it via the app finally, and even that took 2-3 tries.
Happens for me as well, but if you click biometric lock it shows the status as locked. On the my aadhar screen it initially shows the lock icon for biometric as open, but that seems to be incorrect as it shows the correct status on clicking into it.but when I check again in the 'My Aadhaar' tab my biometric is clearly not locked.
Oh no. In my case my biometric is still unlocked, but the app keeps giving out false notifications.Happens for me as well, but if you click biometric lock it shows the status as locked. On the my aadhar screen it initially shows the lock icon for biometric as open, but that seems to be incorrect as it shows the correct status on clicking into it.
Apparently from state govt websites and land registries. Recently read some news articles:
- How did the crooks obtain the images of the fingerprint in the first place?
Furthermore, at least to my knowledge, no govt body, RBI or UIDAI have even acknowledged this blatantly obvious flaw in the system (please correct me if I am wrong about this).Completely agree with @iosoft, @TEUser2K1 and @LinkdJay: govt. should be more responsible with data. But it is also important not to stop at the first problem we notice and ignore the remaining problems. I am still wondering about the remaining parts of the puzzle: how did they convince the aadhaar system that this stolen picture was a live fingerprint: did they mod some hardware, or did they use silicone transfers? Who was the recipient of the money? Why can't they just trace it simply by going to the point of sale?
Thanks for the links.[...]
Thank you so much for the article, there're so many interesting things in it:[picture]
Actually, they (Police) will never revel the actual process for obvious reasonThank you so much for the article, there're so many interesting things in it:
- They've arrested the people based on the Customer Service Point machine, which I thought was an obvious way to track people down. Good.
- They claim that they converted photos of fingerprints into a near-perfect silicone fingerprint with a success rate of 6 - 12%
- To make this, they used a hard dice and silicone solution. I don't know if this is a mistranslation or a transcription error, but I really don't understand it.
