What is the difference between TSA PreCheck® and CLEAR Plus?

TSA PreCheck® is a U.S. government program that gives approved travelers an easier physical screening process without removing shoes, laptops, 3-1-1 liquids, belts, or light jackets at 200+ airports nationwide. Approvals typically take 3-5 days, but may take up to 60 days.

CLEAR Plus¹ is a paid annual membership that verifies your identity using your eyes or fingerprints at airport security. Enroll in minutes and start using your CLEAR Plus Membership right away at 50+ locations nationwide.
¹This service is not associated with the TSA PreCheck® Application Program. CLEAR Plus is currently only available to U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents 18 and older with a valid government-issued photo I.D.
