BSNL users are safe as the slow internet doesn’t allow UIDAI to interfere with the contact list: BSNL CEO

New Delhi: Google has admitted that it is to blame for the mysterious appearance of an outdated Aadhaar helpline number in the contact lists of phones, and clarified that it wasn’t an unauthorized breach of the Android devices. But till Google took all responsibility for the error, there was panic seen among the users.


BSNL CEO Mr, Anupam Shrivastava has assured that at least the BSNL users won’t have any problems related to data breach as BSNL internet is so slow that no hacker can hack into the network.

Anupam’s assurances comes at a time when data safety is a key issue even discussed a lot in the parliament. But Anupam has reiterated that BSNL will make its internet slower just to keep user data safe. Safety of user data is of utmost priority and nothing will be done to compromise it.

TRAI was at first worried that may be the UIDAI helpline number washed pushed into the smartphones by telecom operators, but now it can breathe a sigh of relief. The internet connection of BSNL is so slow that even if it wants to, it cannot push such numbers into the contact list.

Hackers all across India believe that no one can hack into a BSNL network because the slow internet is so irritating that anyone would give up in a matter of minutes.

Google was responding to a social media storm on Friday over the appearance of defunct UIDAI helpline number 1800-300-1947 on Android and some iOS devices, with many citizens fearing a breach of privacy amid the ongoing debate around the security of the Aadhaar system.

The CEOs of other telecom companies have started sending their operation team to learn from BSNL the solution for the issue.
