"In just one year, CLEAR has completely transformed the way I travel...I consider it my 'golden ticket'" -Tim Ferriss, CLEAR member and New York Times bestselling author

CLEAR, the leading biometric identity service, celebrated its first year of enhancing security and delighting travelers at San Francisco International Airport this week. Certified by the Department of Homeland Security as Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology, CLEAR allows members to use their biometrics (fingerprint or iris) to identify themselves at security at major US airports. CLEAR’s technology has now been used more than one million times.

“We are thrilled to be a partner to San Francisco International Airport. Just like its home city, the airport has an inspiring focus on innovation and a passion for customer service,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. “It has been an honor to serve the airport and get to know our dynamic Bay Area members over the past year. ”

CLEAR member and New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss is based in San Francisco: “In just one year, CLEAR has completely transformed the way I travel. I can now usually get from sidewalk to gate in less than 5 minutes. SFO should be applauded for embracing technology, such as CLEAR, that can make the travel experience frictionless for their customers.” In closing, he added, “I consider CLEAR my ‘golden ticket’ for travel.”

CLEAR uses biometric technology to speed members through airport security in under 5 minutes on average, effectively transforming travel. CLEAR is to airports what the ATM is to banks: a quick, predictable, and secure experience. CLEAR, which will open at San Antonio International Airport this summer, currently operates at San Francisco, Denver, Dallas-Fort Worth, and Orlando international airports, and at Westchester County Airport in New York. CLEAR has a growing base of over 250,000 members nationwide and has already been used over one million times. CLEAR is currently expanding to bring its timesaving, secure solution to airports around the country. Enrollment is fast and easy and can be done at any of CLEAR’s enrollment centers ( For more information on how CLEAR is changing the way people travel, visit
