Skype Lite integrated with Aadhaar

R Dinakaran Chennai | Updated on January 11, 2018



Skype Lite has been integrated with Aadhaar.

The integration will help Skype Lite users identify the genuineness of the persons on either ends of the call.

Both the persons can verify their identities at the beginning of the video call by requesting Aadhaar verification. To confirm their identity, the user has to click on “Verify Aadhaar identity”, enter their Aadhaar number. They will be asked to authenticate with a one-time password (OTP). Once validated, they can choose to share the Aadhaar information with the other person to confirm their identity.

Microsoft, which owns Skype and Skype Lite, says it will not store the Aadhaar details.

This can be used while conversing with Government officials or during job interviews.
