    CLEAR, the secure identity company that speeds travelers through airport security, announced today that CLEAR lanes have been used over 1 million times. To celebrate the millionth mark, CLEAR launched a website featuring fun travel stats compiled over the past two years. Click here to view the data.
    “This is an exciting milestone for CLEAR and for our members,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. “CLEAR is to airports what the ATM is to banks: a quick, predictable, and secure experience. Our goal is to help people live, work and travel smarter, while continuing to enhance homeland security. We're constantly working towards new ways to modernize the travel experience, and we are incredibly grateful to our members and partners for helping us reach the millionth mark."

    We have never used such services so far, and yes, we enjoy the airport experience as a whole. :) << I now wonder, let's say all clear members want to fly within hours from the same airport, can they still "cleared" the fast way? >>

    CLEAR is great at SFO. It is well worth joining. Have had one funny experience when they must have had a trainee from TSA at the CLEAR station. The process is you put your id card in the kiosk and your fingers on a pad. The fingerprints are checked by the system and you are then escorted to the security conveyor belt. This one time after I did the kiosk verification the CLEAR person was dutifully check marking all the items on the boarding pass and then said "what is your name?". I responded "you just checked my id, scanned/verified my fingerprints, and now want me to say my name to make sure I'm really me? Don't you trust your own system?". The other CLEAR person nearby grinned widely. They never asked for the name again.

    I agree the name thing is utterly stupid, regardless of the airport.

    However, Clear is a completely separate entity than the TSA. Clear is a for-profit line-cutting business, and you don't reach the tentacles of the TSA until you get the ID podium.
