DigiLocker is a digital document storage service that grants access to authentic virtual documents. The Digital Locker Scheme was initiated by Government of India in 2015. It allows Indian residents to securely store essential documents in their personal electronic space.
DigiLocker ensures secure access to all documents by utilising authenticity services provided by Aadhaar.
DigiLocker minimises or eliminates the requirement for paperwork, thus streamlining the manual labour involved in handling documents within government agencies.
There are many benefits of DigiLocker. It saves the need for carrying physi`cal documents, thus saving on costs as well as physical storage space for documents.
DigiLocker’s secure platform minimises the risk of fraud and document misuse, since documents cannot be shared without the user’s explicit permission.
DigiLocker allows users to access and share documents digitally, thus promoting convenience and reducing the risk of loss or damage.
Download the DigiLocker app from Google PlayStore and register using your mobile number. After entering the phone number, authenticate it by entering a One-time Password (OTP). Next, choose a username and password for the DigiLocker account. Lastly, sync it with your Aadhaar number.
