Facial scanning now arriving at U.S. airports

Written by on March 17, 2018

CBP is testing biometric scanning at a dozen or so U.S. international airports to ensure that people leaving the country are who they say they are, and to prevent visa overstays. The Transportation Security Administration, another agency within the Department of Homeland Security, is testing similar devices at security check-in lines. Steve Karoly, acting assistant administrator at TSA, calls the use of biometrics “a game changer” for the aviation security. “It will make things a little bit easier, more efficient at an airport environment,” he says. Karoly predicts it will be a few more years before biometrics are in widespread use by TSA. NPR
