Aadhaar Card PDF Password

We have discussed earlier how to download your e-Aadhaar Card Letter Online from the website, to know the complete process just click here. To download Aadhaar Card from UIDAI Website or mAadhaar app aadhar card download password is not required. But once you finish downloading your Aadhaar Card PDF File, to view your downloaded eAadhaar PDF it will ask you to enter the password. This means your e-Aadhaar PDF file is encrypted with password protection for your security and privacy reasons. Without entering the valid password your e-Aadhaar card cannot be viewed by anyone.

Aadhaar Card PDF Password

So In this post, we will focus on how people after downloading their e-Aadhaar Card Letter can open their Aadhaar if they are facing any difficulty in it.

To Open the PDF file of Aadhaar Letter you need the password, many people may be unaware of their Aadhar password and some people even though knowing the correct Aadhar password may be unsuccessful to unlock or view their Aadhaar PDF. Below are steps explained clearly which will help you to know what is Aadhaar Card PDF Password.

Aadhaar Card PDF Password

🔒 Open Aadhaar Card PDF by entering Aadhaar Card PDF Password

Once you have your Aadhaar PDF file on your device, just open the file with any PDF Software or Google Chrome Browser itself.

When you open the PDF File it will prompt you to enter the password, once supplying the Aadhaar Card PDF password then only you will be able to view your e-Aadhaar Card Letter.

Now here is the solution, in the password prompt you will have to put the Aadhaar password and the password will be your first four letters of the name in block letters + Year of birth, previously Aadhaar PDF used to get open by entering the postal address pin code. So to tighten the security, even more, UIDAI has changed the Aadhaar PDF Password Format.

Postal Pin Code will only work as a password to open eAadhaar Card PDF which was downloaded earlier. If you have downloaded your Aadhar PDF recently then this new password format will be applied to it.

Below are some examples for your reference stating how the Aadhaar password combination will be according to your details:

e aadhaar password example

Name: Sharman Joshi
Year of Birth: 1985

The password will be SHAR1985
_______________________________
Name: Ram Pothineni
Year of Birth: 1988

The password will be RAMP1988
_______________________________
Name: N. T. Rama Rao
Year of Birth: 1983

The password will be N.T.1983
_______________________________
Name: JAY
Year of Birth: 1990

The password will be JAY1990
_______________________________

Aadhar Card Password for 2 letter name

Name: Di
Year of Birth: 2004

The password will be DI2004

It's very simple when the software prompts you to enter the password for Aadhar pdf, the password which you should pass is the first four letters of the name in block letters + Year of birth.

So after entering the password for Aadhar pdf, you will be able to view your Aadhaar Card and then you are ready to print it.

After Printing the e-Aadhaar Letter you can also laminate it and make it like a card and use it to avail various services in the long run. However, now you can even request the original Aadhaar Card Letter by paying a nominal fee of ₹50.

The password pattern to open Aadhaar PDF will be same for all Aadhaar Cards which is downloaded from the UIDAI Website like Baal Aadhaar (child Aadhaar), Adult Aadhaar, Disabled Aadhaar, Bedridden Aadhaar, etc.

What in case if you forget your 🔒 e-Aadhaar Card PDF Password

There is no need to be concerned or worried in case if you forget your Aadhaar PDF Password. Aadhaar PDF Password is not something unique which the user has set, instead, it's just a combination of Aadhaar Holder's first four-letter followed by the Year of Birth.

So anytime if you forget your Aadhaar PDF Password then you can come to this post and get to know Aadhaar password pattern to open your eAadhaar PDF Password.

Aadhaar Password not working | e aadhaar password incorrect

If the latest Aadhaar password pattern which is the first four letters (in capital letters) + year of birth is not working or its showing e aadhaar password incorrect then that means you may be having the Aadhaar Card Copy which was downloaded earlier when the password pattern used to be different. So if the new format of Aadhaar password not working, then you can try out your postal code to open Aadhaar document password protected.

Password for Old Aadhar

If you have old Aadhaar stored on your thumb drive, laptop, hard drive or computer then the adhar pdf password combination for the old Aadhaar will be different from the latest one. As told earlier the adhar pdf password to unlock the password-protected old Aadhaar PDF file will be the postal code. So when Aadhaar Card PDF is asking the password, enter the postal code and your Aadhaar PDF file will get open.

Aadhaar Card Enrollment Rejected?

Is you Aadhaar Card enrollment Rejected? did you receive any message on your registered mobile number that your Aadhaar Card generation is rejected? then here we are going to list a few reasons which could lead to such rejections. Main Reason Behind Rejection of Aadhaar Mostly many people in India have messed up and don’t remember if they have been earlier enrolled for Aadhaar Card or not. And because they have not received their Aadhaar Card they go to Aadhaar Center and they get their self re-enroll, but this is not the solution to this problem. A person can enroll for Aadhaar Card only once and once you have been issued with 12 digit Aadhaar, even if you try to enroll yourself any number of times your application will always get rejected. If the first application is valid and all documents have been furnished then it will be accepted and you will be issued with 12 digit Aadhaar Number, however, you will also get your Aadhaar Card Letter delivered to your address via India P
