Are your privacy concerns lessened with new full body scanner software?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

We’ve been following the news that TSA is removing some of their full body scanners due to privacy issues. The FAA now requires updated scanners to use Automated Target Recognition (ATR), which shows a stick-figure like outline of the person being scanned instead of near nude images. The new software machines are supposed to make security faster because agents can monitor the images at the lane and not in a separate room. Travelers will still be able to choose the pat down option over the scanner. You can read more here: http://blog.tsa.gov/2013/01/rapiscan-backscatter-contract.html.

How does this change the way you fly? Does it make you more or less inclined to use full body scanners?
