I'm surprised I haven't heard about this until now. Clear, a subsidiary of Verified Identity Pass, is a service that pre-screens members and gives them line bypass at various designated airport security checkpoints in the United States for about $100 a year. Apparently you fill out an application form and then show up for an in-person interview of sorts where I assume they check you out, and you provide them with two pieces of government ID. Then, they take your picture, your fingerprints and images of your irises. No biggie.
