CLEAR is currently approved as an alternative to the TSA Travel Document Checker based on the integrity and security of our identity authentication and validation process. CLEAR is not an alternative to physical screening. The TSA physical screening process at most airports is a single process for all passengers, including CLEARmembers. As such, CLEARmembers are currently subject to the same physical screening processes as other travelers, including AIT scanners also known as whole body scanners. TSA is currently piloting a risk-based physical screening process at select airport. The pilot program is called PreCheck. Please see more details on CLEAR and PreCheck below under "TSA Risk-Based Screening Pilot."

CLEAR strongly supports the TSA'S Risk Based Screening Pilot
There's a Press Release available on CLEAR's site that explains our position: http://clearme.com/announcements/clear-voices-strong-support-tsas-risk-based-screening-pilot
As TSA acknowledged, for any Risk Based Screening approach to be secure, they must have a way to positively identify travelers. CLEAR has proven that the combination of secure enrollment, commercial data, and biometrics is a very powerful way to achieve that identification.
CLEAR is the largest provider of secure, biometric identity verification for airport security and in on-going conversations with the TSA.
This is an early and extremely limited pilot to test certain processes. According to TSA, the pilot is only open to a few thousand people, and it is not clear if, how or when they will expand beyond this population or the small number of participating airports.
On the other hand, TSA is now publically signaling its interest in verified identity programs to potentially offer differentiated physical screening. In this sense, being a CLEARmember is actually a way to be part of using biometrics and verified identification now, and to bypass Travel Document Checkers as a result.
CLEAR is continuing to work with TSA and is more confident than ever that TSA will ultimately offer some sort of public-private partnership that takes advantage of CLEAR's technology and access to commercial data.
