Facial recognition is about to become an increasingly common security measure at US airports.
The Transportation Security Administration has published a roadmap for how it plans to integrate new biometric data systems into airports across the country.
This includes plans to use fingerprints and facial scans at airport checkpoints, potentially leading to shorter lines.
It could also mean travelers may be able to leave their passports at home in the future.
TSA plans to partner with US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on a biometric security system for international travelers.
It would later expand this facial recognition system to TSA Precheck members and, ultimately, domestic flights.
But first, the agency is working to hone its infrastructure for facial recognition technology.
