TSA Designes New Technology to Make Travel Safer

November 24, 2020 / Shivani Salunke

With regards to 2020, this previous year has been, well, we should simply say unique. Especially for the airline industry.

If it's been awhile since you've flown, TSA needs you to know about certain changes.

For example, they've turned out something many refer to as Credential Authentication Technology, or CAT for short. It's intended to catch phony forms of identification.

Mancha says when you approach TSA security, rather than giving your ID to a agent, you'll place it into the CAT unit for scanning. Doing it without anyone else's help during COVID-19 precautionary measures will cut down on touch points.
