According to a Facebook spokesperson " This is just a small test where we provide additional language when people sign up for an account to say that using a name on their Adhar Card makes it easier for friends to recognize them. This is an optional prompt which we are testing. People are not required to use name on their Adhar Card "

Be Careful users don't do any illegal stuff over the internet and also be aware of your Adhar Card because nowadays even Amazon thought to take Adhar for their better services.


If someone asks for your Adhar Card please don't give it them them without knowing the purpose and all. Because it the key anybody can access your Bank account, etc with the help of Adhar Card. So, take care of yourself.
