Just received an email that CLEAR, the airport security screening service, has ceased operations. A quick Google news search verified it. CLEAR was only in a handful of airports across the U.S. but it did provide a service to frequent flyers who were looking for a way to get through the airport security screening process faster.
The CLEAR service was known for its special security lanes in airports which allowed its members to bypass long lines and proceed directly to the screening process, which was enabled by background security checks and advanced biometric fingerprint and retina scanning technology used to authenticate the identity of the service subscribers.
