Last week, many Android users found UIDAI's helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number mysteriously saved in their contact list by default. Shortly after the reports emerged, Google clarified that it inadvertently coded the numbers into the SetUp wizard of Android in 2014 and has since been present through syncing. The search giant also said that it would fix the error in its next Android update and also said that users can delete the number if they wished.
