Why do Aadhaar Authentication?
In today’s world, when the proof of identity of an individual is essential for access to goods and services, there has been an alarming rise in cases of identity theft and data breaches. This results in a grave scenario, where criminals can gain access to identity information of somebody and use it as their own. In addition to it, as a person’s identity is no longer just an offline document and identifying a candidate digitally is critical too. Increased government and industry regulations (such as AML, KYC, and SOX) hence seek to place the responsibility on businesses to carry out identity authentication and make sure that their customers or employees aren’t fraudsters or identity thieves.
Aadhaar authentication hence provides a quick, cheap and reliable source of identity verification.
