How To Change or Update Mobile Number in Aadhar Card- Complete Process Explained

These last couple days I've been writing a lot about Aadhar Card. So another post on the same series is, How to Change or Update Aadhar Card Phone number Online.

This article will show you how you can change your phone number registered with Aadhar Card online. But before that, as my tradition goes, let's get into a bit of basics.

What is Registered Aadhar Card Phone Number:-

In case you're getting confused, this number is not some kind of number that has been registered on the name of "aadhar card". It's the number which was used by you while registering for your Aadhar Card. The Cell phone number is registered on your own name. The Aadhar Card team does not hold any rights over the number or you, it's just a simple connection between you and your aadhar Card.

It's primarily used as a security check. A security check that verifies:-
That you're the owner of that Sim Card.
You're a human being. Yeah it sounds absurd, but "human" check is a major issue on the Internet.

So those are the two primary reasons of you having to register your number with Aadhar Card registrations.

What's the Importance of Registering Your Number with Aadhar Card:-

Yeah you might argue that you're already providing them with your identity proof and other details, so why the number.The number is not just an identity verification. It's also a Fail-safe. It's used as a "OTP" receiver, whenever there's a major change on your Aadhar Card. For eg. if you checkout our other posts on How to check Aadhar Card Status, or how to change Aadhar Card Address, you'd notice that an OTP (One-time password) is always sent to your registered number.

This number verifies that you're the same person who registered for that Aadhar card, and hence are the authorized guy to change the details.Without this number, they wouldn't be able to send you an OTP, and hence you wouldn't be able to change your details.

Why /When Should you Change Aadhar Card Registered Phone Number:-

If the Aadhar Card registered mobile number is so damn important, why would anybody want to change it, right?

Well there are reasons for it, and it might happen to anyone.You might have lost your number, if that happens, you wouldn't be able to change any of your Aadhar Card details, and that's bad, so that's a scenario when you might want to change your Aadhar Card Registered mobile number. Or, you might have shared your Sim Card with someone else, even then you might have to change your Aadhar card registered mobile number.

Another scenario that might happen is, you're going to just change your number for certain reasons.
