A company specializing in biometric identification through fingerprints or eye scans has opened kiosks at Los Angeles International Airport, where officials hope the addition will help speed up security lines.
The installation of CLEAR pods at all LAX terminals make it the 22nd airport to have voluntary biometric identification available. The pods are currently installed at terminals 2 and 3, where travelers will find a CLEAR lane near the ID check area.
CLEAR has a three-step sign-up process that takes about five minutes and digitally authenticates a person's driver's license or passport, confirms their identity, and then creates a biometric account.
By using the system, CLEAR speeds members through the line for ID check and straight to the screening line.

LAX said new members who enroll at the airport will receive a one-month free trial and can use CLEAR immediately. The cost is $15 per month after the free trial.
