TSA Testing Fingerprint Check-In System

TSA Testing Fingerprint Check-In System
Jesse Tabit

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is now testing a program at two U.S. airports called biometric authentication technology (BAT) that uses fingerprint scanning instead of boarding passes to expedite the check-in procedure. Passengers Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and Denver International Airport (DEN) who are enrolled in TSA Precheck can opt for the scans, as the process is voluntary.

    Do they scribble on your fingers the way they scribble on your boarding pass???

    I don’t think you mean “check-in procedure”. The airlines do check in, not TSA. I think you mean the process of identification at the security line. This is NOT Check-in.
