TSA Starts Trusted Traveler Program

Trusted Traveler Program: Solution to Stress-Free Customs?

The TSA announced today that it will be launching a pilot program that aims to reduce the hassle passengers have to experience when going through customs. It's called the Trusted Traveler Program, and it's only being tested on select passengers of American and Delta airlines who are flying out of a couple of airports.

Passengers who are enrolled in the program have to agree to release private details about themselves, in addition to the usual information people provide when going through customs, which includes a full name, date of birth, and gender. This extra information will give security more assurance that you are who you say you are.

If this move lowers the possibility of going through body scanners or invasive searches, would you participate in the program?
