Samsung Wallet



Your ID in your phone

You can now add your driver license or state ID to Samsung Wallet1 and use it at participating TSA checkpoints3. Instead of taking out your physical ID and passing it to a TSA Officer, you can open your Samsung Wallet. Authenticate, and tap or scan on a TSA digital identity reader. It’s quick, convenient, easy, and secure.


Where you can use it

Samsung Wallet is currently available for use at TSA checkpoints in participating airports2,3. More states and airport locations will be added on an ongoing basis.


It’s secure and private

With fingerprint or PIN required for access, and with Samsung Knox on your Galaxy phone, your Samsung Wallet is secure. The personal information from your driver license or state ID is encrypted.

How to use your Mobile Driver’s License at TSA checkpoints2,3

Look for a TSA digital identity reader at the TSA checkpoint.

If the TSA checkpoint has a TSA digital identity reader, you have two options to present your Mobile Driver’s License:

NFC: Tap your phone near the NFC reader and authenticate once your phone displays your Mobile Driver’s License information.

QR: Open the Samsung Wallet app to the ‘Quick access’ tab, select your Mobile Driver’s License and authenticate to open the card details page. Select ‘view QR code’ and scan it on the QR code reader once it appears.

Some airport checkpoints require additional verification before you can clear the TSA checkpoint.
