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!
Opt-in at select airports to participate in the TSA PreCheck® Touchless Identity Solution program during check-in with participating airlines. Store your participation preference, TSA PreCheck® KTN, and Passport Number in the airlines mobile app. By opting in, your identity can be verified without presenting a physical ID at bag drop, the security checkpoint, and at the boarding gate.
Mobile Driver's License
Add your state-issued eligible driver's license or identification card to your phone's digital wallet. Present your ID at select TSA PreCheck® checkpoints by tapping your phone or linked device. Your photo will be taken by the TSA reader at security to proceed to screening. You must still carry your physical ID as needed.
Download a TSA approved digital ID app to your mobile device. Scan in your state-issued driver's license or state ID. At select TSA PreCheck® checkpoints, scan the app issued QR code. Your photo will be taken by the TSA reader at security to proceed to screening. You must still carry your physical ID as needed.
