For a long time, Aadhaar has got away with harming the interests of the country and its residents because of lack of information among citizens. There has been magnificent work done by various researchers, tech experts and news professionals exposing the dangers of Aadhaar, but it is difficult for the common man to understand the magnitude of the problem from stray incidents. Technological explanations of the insecurities of Aadhaar can be difficult to understand even for highly educated people without adequate understanding of tech security. Research on widespread deprivation has been distributed among many publications.

To make a long story short, Aadhaar FAIL! was necessary to present as a larger picture in easily understood language and in one place.

This site is curated by Vidyut. However the content on this site owes thanks to countless people who have put in the hard work to conduct research, find facts, do analysis, report diligently, pursue the challenge to Aadhaar on many fronts, including right up to the Supreme Court. It is impossible to name all the people who have made this effort possible, though I will certainly try once the urgent task of providing a broad picture across the various aspects where Aadhaar is a problem is done.

Key volunteers on this site – all effort on this website is completely voluntary:
