TSA begins testing fingerprint check ins at two US airports

lt's never a nice experience to stand in line at the airport for hoursjust to get a pat down when you get to the end. Hopefully, TS_As new biometric fingerprint tech could make air travel a more pleasant experience for most people. Starting this week, the Transportation Security Administration's fingerprint sensors will go through nroof-ofconce-t testinat Hartsfreld-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and at Denver International Airport. The test will last for four weeks, and you can try it out for yourself if you registered your fingerprint as part of TSA's PreCheck program. Your biometric info will serve as both proof of identification andboarding pass, so it can, in theory, lead to shorter lines and much speedier check-in. For the proof-of-concept test, though, participants still have to show their identification documents, boarding passes and tickets, since its purpose is to assess how accurate the biometric system is.
