Did you know that you could find all the phone numbers associated with your Aadhaar card? Yes, the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) new website allows you to do so. Telecom Analytics for Fraud Management and Consumer Protection (TAFCOP), a platform run by the Department of Telecommunications. It enables users to verify all phone numbers associated with their Aadhaar numbers. This post will guide you on how you can find all the phone numbers linked to your Aadhaar.
It’s an excellent tool and can help find a fraud who may have misused your Aadhaar to get a SIM under your name. You can also use it to release connect between an old number that you are not using anymore with Aadhaar. As phone numbers get recycled, it is best to remove the linkage.
How to Check All Phone Numbers Linked with Your Aadhaar
Here are two ways using which you can find all the phone numbers registered under your name.
- Check via TAFCOP
- Check with UIDAI
It is possible that you may not be able to find your mobile number. It seems to be a work in progress. While it says limited to two states, that is not the case, butt it is still not complete.
1] Check via TAFCOP
Telecom users can use the Telecom Analytics for Fraud Management and Consumer Protection (TAFCOP) portal to look up all the phone numbers associated with their Aadhaar number. Here’s how you can use TAFCOP to find all the numbers related to your Aadhaar.
Note: While the website says it is limited to Telangana and Andhra, it is not limited. I have verified a couple of mobile numbers, some with two numbers, and it worked fine.
- To begin the process, navigate to TAFCOP’s official website in a web browser.
- Now, enter your mobile number associated with the Aadhaar card in the text entry field box present.
- Next, click on the Request OTP button present right below to generate a One Time Password that can be used to log in.
- Once you’ve received the OTP on your phone, enter it on the next page and click on Validate to proceed to the next step.
- With this, you’ll find a list of all the phone numbers linked to your account.
2] Check with UIDAI
If you are unable to find your number in the TAFCOP database, here’s a different process that can be utilized by anyone holding an Aadhaar card in India.
- Start by visiting the Unique Identification Authority of India (UDIAI)’s the official website in a web browser (such as Chrome or Microsoft Edge).
- Now, choose the Aadhaar Authentication History present under My Aadhaar > Aadhaar Services.
- This will redirect you to a new tab page asking you to enter your Aadhaar number or Virtual ID and a captcha.
- Next, you’ll be asked to enter the OTP sent to your registered mobile number.
- Once that’s done, select the Authentication type, choose a date range, and enter the number of records you’d like to retrieve.
- With this, you’ll be displayed a list of all the times your Aadhaar has been used in the specified date range.
What Can I Do if I Find a Mobile Number That I Haven’t Registered?
Subscribers can also report numbers that are not in use or are not being utilized by themselves. The option to do so is available on the same screen once logged in with the mobile number on TAFCOP’s website.
How Many Phone Numbers Can I Register on a Single Aadhaar?
The Department of Transportation has standards that allow each subscriber to register up to nine mobile connections. Once that number is reached, every subsequent connection purchased under the same Aadhaar will be deemed a bulk link for business use.
Can I Check Phone Numbers Registered to Someone Else?
Well, practically yes, but no. While it is possible for you to check phone numbers registered to someone else, you will require a unique OTP sent to their mobile number.
