Aadhaar eSign now works with face authentication


The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) has announced a major advancement in its Aadhaar eSign service: the integration of face authentication for document signing. This innovative feature marks a significant step forward in user convenience, security, and accessibility.

Inclusive Accessibility: Beyond Mobile Numbers:

Gone are the days of waiting for one-time passwords (OTPs) and the barrier of needing a linked mobile number to sign documents. With face authentication, users can now instantly verify their identity and sign documents simply by positioning their faces within the camera frame. This removes the need for remembering passwords, waiting for messages, or having a linked mobile phone, resulting in a significantly faster, more convenient, and inclusive eSigning experience for everyone.

Cost-Effective Efficiency: Eliminating Hardware Dependencies:

Face authentication also eliminates the need for specialized biometric hardware devices, further streamlining the eSigning process and reducing costs. Previously, individuals and organizations needed to invest in these devices to utilize eSign services. Now, with the readily available camera on most smartphones and laptops, anyone can access and utilize the service seamlessly. This cost-effectiveness makes eSigning accessible to a broader range of users and organizations, driving further adoption and empowering a truly paperless environment.

A Seamless and Secure Experience:

The integration of face authentication simplifies the eSigning process by eliminating the need for additional authentication steps. Users simply upload their document, enter their Aadhaar number, and position their face within the camera frame. Upon successful verification, their eSignature is applied, and the signed document is readily available for download and sharing. This user-friendly design ensures a smooth and efficient eSigning experience for all.

Embracing the Future of eSigning:

The introduction of face authentication marks a significant advancement for Aadhaar eSign, establishing its position as a cutting-edge platform for secure and convenient digital signing. With its enhanced features and user-centric design, Aadhaar eSign empowers individuals and organizations to embrace the future of paperless transactions and unlock the full potential of the digital economy.

This is just the beginning. The integration of face authentication marks an exciting new chapter for Aadhaar eSign. We can expect further innovations and advancements in the future, ensuring a seamless, secure, and accessible eSigning experience for everyone.
