The Unique Identification Authority of India always tries to bring in new features to make Aadhaar more secure. Of late they introduced the ‘Masked Aadhaar’ facility, where the cardholder was given a secure way to proof his identity without compromising his personal details. Basically, in masked Aadhaar, the cardholder gets to show the partially covered 12-digit Aadhaar number if he wishes to by download it from the UIDAI website. This facility was provided to make sure that you keep your details safe by not showing it completely in places where you are not comfortable.
