Is Biometrics ID Security Good Enough?
United Airlines has announced plans to begin rolling out Clear’s biometric prescreening at its hub airports. The system works by verifying a flier’s fingerprints or eye scan. Clear already is available at about 60 locations throughout the United States. It offers a system that utilizes biometrics to speed preapproved travelers to the front of the security lane, and even ahead of TSA Pre-Check fliers. There now are at least 53 biometric systems used just by the aviation industry.
