Google Takes The Blame For UIDAI Number Showing Up In People’s Phones
Google has finally put the controversy of UIDAI contact showing up seemingly randomly in people’s phones at rest and confirmed that the issue didn’t result from any directive by any authority in India but due to a software issue in Android. The controversy under which UIDAI’s now-decommissioned toll-free number was spotted by many mobile phone users in the country can be traced back to 2014, Google said, when the then UIDAI number and the 112 distress helpline number were “inadvertently coded” within the Android setup wizard and has remained on devices, the company confirmed to Gadgets 360 via an emailed statement late on Friday.
