Biometric and Digital Identity Solutions For TSA PreCheck® Members

By: TSA - October 25th, 2023 -

Discover New Technologies for a
Faster, Easier Travel Experience.

Biometric and digital forms of identity enable the passenger to seamlessly and
securely transmit identity information using biometrics at select TSA checkpoints.

* Travelers must present alternative physical ID if requested by TSA.

Participation in these pilots is optional. Your photo will be taken if you participate. During the evaluation periods, your photo and limited biographic information will be shared with DHS Science and Technology Directorate to evaluate the technology's effectiveness. Please notify a TSA officer if you do not wish to participate and would like to receive standard ID verification screening.

As TSA continues to integrate new technologies for a faster, easier travel experience, we've collaborated on several innovative digital identity initiatives, which work in place of a physical ID* or boarding pass. Be sure to follow the steps to set up and activate your selected digital identity solution before your trip so it’s ready to present at the TSA checkpoint. Look for your preferred airline or device maker below to find out more!
