How It Works

Stress-Free Airport Security Nationwide

CLEAR’s airport membership helps you get through security faster. 

Enroll in Minutes

Enroll online here or in-person at any CLEAR airport location. If you begin online, you’ll need to finish at the airport next time you fly. Our Ambassadors will help you get set up at a CLEAR pod by adding your eyes or fingerprint to your secure profile, so we can safely verify it’s you each time you fly.

Look for Our Lanes

Once you’ve enrolled in CLEAR Plus, you can use it right away. Simply head to security and look for our dedicated CLEAR Lanes. Want to see where we’re located?

We Keep You Moving

In the CLEAR Lane, step up to the pod and scan your boarding pass. You’ll be prompted to verify you are you with your eyes or fingerprint — no need to stop to pull out an ID. Once verified, an Ambassador will escort you to the front for the physical screening.

What’s the difference between CLEAR and TSA PreCheck®?

CLEAR allows for a quick identity verification experience. Step right up to a CLEAR pod and verify you are you with your eyes or fingerprint instead of waiting to show government issued photo I.D.

TSA PreCheck® is a U.S. government program that identifies travelers deemed low-risk through a security threat assessment performed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Once approved to participate in the program, it allows travelers to pass through an expedited security screening at U.S. airports nationwide with no need to remove shoes, laptops, 3-1-1 liquids, belts or light jackets. This allows travelers to enjoy a more convenient and efficient experience at airport security. Many of our members find that these two services complement each other — providing the quickest, surest route through the airport.
