The Essentials

Are You Willing to Trade Personal Data for Faster Airport Security?

How much of your personal data are you willing to share in return for faster airport security?


According to a survey by the International Air Transport Association, 65% of you are willing to give our more personal details if it means a smoother and faster security experience.


So what does this mean? Biometric data, banking and credit information and in some cases–your marital status, speeding tickets as well are included in this personal data.


But of course, there’s no guarantee that when the technology supporting the security will get better, the lines will get shorter.


That’s still dependent on how many security personnel will be manning the checkpoints.
