ATLANTA — Android users in Georgia now have the option of using a digital driver’s license at TSA PreCheck.
Georgians can present their digital driver’s license or ID using Android smartphones at some Transportation Security Administration PreCheck security checkpoints, including those within Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Back in May, the DDS added this option for iPhone users.
“Across the state, Georgians expressed overwhelming excitement over the initial rollout of this new option and today’s announcement is another exciting step forward in Georgia’s mission to provide cutting-edge technology to its citizens,” said Governor Brian Kemp. “We look forward to the continued rollout of this program and its growth in the days and years ahead.”
Although Georgians now have a digital option at TSA PreCheck security checkpoints, residents must continue to always carry a physical ID, according to the DDS.
