MyTSA FAQ

How can I download the MyTSA app?

The MyTSA app is available in the iTunes and Google Play app stores and can be downloaded to your personal electronic devices.

How do I add airports to the My Airports screen?

Tap the search icon at the top right of the screen and type in the name of the airport. Tap the star next to the airport name to add it to your list of favorites.

How do I change the order of my favorite airports?

To arrange your favorite airports, tap the Edit button at the top left of the My Airports screen. You can then drag and drop the airports into the order you prefer. Please note, if you have location services on, the closest airport to you will always be listed first.

How do I report wait times?

You may report wait times under ‘Checkpoint Wait Time’ on the ‘My Airports’ screen. You must be within a half-mile radius of the airport to report wait times.

I can’t see the crowdsourced wait times on the app.

Wait times are kept for two hours from the time they are reported. If no one has reported within that time frame, wait times will not appear.

The app is showing incorrect wait times. The line is longer than the app indicates.

Wait times are based on crowdsourced data provided by passengers and we cannot ensure their accuracy. Prepare for your trip by checking the histogram, which is based on historical data and can estimate how busy your airport is likely to be on your selected day and time of travel.

What is the TSA histogram and why doesn’t the Y-axis appear on the histogram?

The TSA histogram allows travelers to better prepare before leaving for the airport. The Y-axis represents the peak amount of passengers based on past data. It is categorized by: typically not busy, typically not too busy, typically busy, typically very busy. You may select your desired day and time to display the Y-axis data value. This option is under the “Plan for Your Trip” section.
