Airport Security New Body Scan

Worried about showing your skivvies and move to the TSA at the airport? Well, you’re in luck if you happen to be flying the friendly skies this month from Las Vegas, Atlanta or DC’s National Airport. The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is testing new software at these airports to increase your privacy when passing through the dreaded Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) machines. Instead of showing a detailed image of each passenger, the new AIT software shows only a generic outline of a person with any potential threats flagged on the picture. This generic outline is the same for every traveler, and if you’re deemed clear by the auto-detection security software, the monitor simply shows an “OK.” It seems like a win-win situation—the same high level of security without publicizing your private parts!

Get the news directly from the TSA, and check out our tips for preventing an airport pat-down, unless, of course, you’re kind of into it.
