TSA pre-screening program
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is currently deploying an expedited security screening program for passengers traveling within the U.S. United is working with the TSA to provide this option to our customers.
How do I participate?
MileagePlus members are invited to participate in the initial phase of the program. Additionally, U.S. citizens currently enrolled in the Global Entry, NEXUS or SENTRI Trusted Traveler programs can also participate by providing a Known Traveler number or PASS ID number. (You are not required to have one of these numbers in order to participate.)
To participate, simply update the TSA Pre-screening Sign-Up page in your My Account profile. (requires login)
If you are not at MileagePlus member, enroll now.
Please note that the TSA will determine eligibility for inclusion in the pilot program on a per-flight-segment basis, and signing up, or even being selected for one flight, does not guarantee that you would receive expedited screening during future travel.
