CLEAR uses biometric technology to identify members and speed them through airport security in under five minutes on average, effectively eliminating lines and transforming travel. CLEAR's secure technology platform delivers certainty of speed and the highest level of service to members at the airport, while also enhancing airport security.

CLEAR has a growing base of over 250,000 members nationwide and has already been used over 1.2 million times. CLEAR is currently expanding to bring its timesaving, secure biometric technology (fingerprint and iris technology) to airports around the country and is now integrated with TSA PreCheck in co-locations. Enrollment is fast and easy and can be done at any of CLEAR's enrollment centers (
