Will the eventual implementation of digital identification allow TSA to build a national database of identification information?

No. TSA will only be able to receive a traveler’s digital identification information at TSA checkpoints upon consent from the traveler. Travelers will control access to and use of the digital ID kept in their mobile device. Generally, TSA does not copy or store the digital ID, unless it is done in a limited testing environment for evaluation of the effectiveness of the pilot. In that instance, TSA will inform the traveler through PIAs, signage, and other means.
