How will I know that I have TSA Pre✓®?

Participating airlines print a TSA Pre✓® indicator directly on your boarding pass if you are eligible for TSA Pre✓® on that flight. In addition to the indicator, TSA Pre✓® eligibility is embedded in the barcode of the boarding pass. Once the boarding pass is scanned at the checkpoint, the TSA officer may refer you to the TSA Pre✓® lane. If you do not have a valid boarding pass with TSA Pre✓® embedded in the barcode, you cannot access the TSA Pre✓® lane.
