How to Generate your Aadhaar Virtual ID in 3 Easy Steps: Don’t you want to share your Aadhaar number? Are you afraid that if you shared a 12-digit Aadhaar number somewhere, your information could be stolen? For users who do not want to share their unique biometric numbers anywhere, UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India) has come up with a new feature called Aadhaar Virtual ID (VID). With vid, you will be able to use it in the service from bank transactions to e-KYC. After the virtual ID, you will not need to provide the Aadhaar card number.
What is Virtual ID?
VID is a 16 digit number that is linked to your Aadhaar number. These numbers are temporary and change. With vid, you need to provide a virtual ID of 16 instead of a 12 digit Aadhaar number.
Why it is special?
Since it is a digital ID, Aadhaar holders can generate it many times. The use of virtual IDs is safer than sharing Aadhaar numbers. At present, the virtual ID is valid for a day only. After a day you will have to generate it again.
