Industry leaders talk public education with Future Travel Experience

In a Future Travel Experience podcast on Thursday, industry leaders explored how to communicate the potential of biometrics at airports to bring a more secure, streamlined travel experience while ensuring privacy. The U.S. Transportation Security Administration is currently exploring the use of biometrics for identity verification at traveler checkpoints.

U.S. states like Iowa, California, and Arizona have recently expanded their digital ID programs to be more integrated into more areas where ID checks happen, like airports. TSA PreCheck allows individuals to authenticate using digital IDs at all checkpoints and allows users to opt out of the system entirely if they would rather go through the traditional verification process.
