If cleared, a PreCheck symbol will be visible on your boarding pass, and your PreCheck eligibility is embedded into the boarding pass barcode.

Once you have checked in for a flight and see the PreCheck symbol on your boarding pass, head for the designated PreCheck lane at the airport security area.

A TSA agent will scan the barcode on your boarding pass, and may then direct you to a lane to receive expedited screening. *

*TSA determines criteria for expedited screening on a per-flight-segment basis and eligibility for the TSA PreCheck program does not guarantee that you will receive expedited screening for every flight.
