Why is my photograph being taken as part of enrollment in the TSA Pre✓® Application Program?

TSA is capturing a photograph to verify an individual’s identity at TSA checkpoints equipped with facial recognition technology. A photo will be captured only for those renewing in person or for first-time enrollees. Those renewing online will not be required to provide a photo at this time.
