NPS: Investing in NPS Safer! Check What’s Two-Factor Authentication Feature That Comes Into Effect From 1 April


NPS: The Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) is committed to keeping your National Pension System (NPS) investment safe. To achieve this, they regularly update the NPS guidelines. From April 1, 2024, a new security measure called Two-Factor Aadhaar Authentication will be implemented for logging into your NPS account.

What is Two-Factor Aadhaar Authentication?

Two-factor Aadhaar authentication adds an extra layer of security to your NPS login. In addition to your password, you will also need a one-time password (OTP) generated from your Aadhaar number to log in. This significantly reduces the risk of unauthorized access to your NPS account.
