What is the PreCheck program?
The TSA’s PreCheck program allows eligible passengers to register their personal and biometric information before they get to the airport. That allows the passengers to move through security checkpoints more quickly, with the TSA claiming that with the PreCheck program you can be done in only 5 minutes!
