Your face is now your passport.
American Airlines is joining a growing list of companies that are beginning to offer facial recognition as a means of identification.
The world’s largest airline will now let some passengers simply scan their face to board their flight at the Los Angeles International Airport.
American Airlines is rolling out facial recognition cameras as part of a 90-day test to identify people before they get on board their flights from LAX’s Terminal 4.
The pilot program, which launched on Wednesday, came about as a result of partnership with digital security company Gemalto.
The technology works by matching users’ face scans against a database created by the Department of Homeland Security.
