What is UID Lock & Unlock?
Security and privacy of personal data has been the primary focus for resident, further attempt to strengthen security and provide control to the resident we have provisioned to support locking and unlocking 12 digit UID
Resident can lock his UID number Via Resident Portal, by doing this Resident cannot perform any sort of Authentication by using UID, UID Token & ANCS Token for Biometric, Demographic & OTP Based authentication. Once UID is locked resident can authenticate using 16 digit VID Number for all forms of authentication (Demo, Bio & OTP).
If resident wants to unlock UID he/she can do so on resident portal. After unlocking resident can authenticate using UID, UID Token & ANCS Token for Biometric, Demo & OTP Based Transaction and also he can authenticate with VID.
