What is a TSA PreCheck® enrollment provider?

A TSA PreCheck enrollment provider is a private sector company that is contracted by TSA to collect TSA PreCheck enrollment information from applicants and submit this data to TSA and the FBI. Applicant enrollments are conducted by these enrollment providers, and providers must meet TSA contract requirements, including strict requirements related to data privacy and security.  Enrollment data is submitted to TSA securely, and TSA uses the enrollment information to perform a background check on the applicant. TSA makes the final decision on TSA PreCheck eligibility. 

The current enrollment providers are CLEAR, IDEMIA and Telos.  Travelers can enroll through the provider that best suits their needs. All available enrollment provider offerings are detailed on tsa.gov/precheck.
