  • TSA adds privacy-friendly body scanners at Boston airport
    The Transportation Security Administration launched a new body scanner at Boston Logan International Airport that the organization is hoping will alleviate privacy concerns. The scanner would not include passenger-specific images, but instead identify anomalies such as guns and bombs. The 27 new scanners will replace 17 older scanners.

The mobile boarding pass is updated if needed to reflect any gate or time changes. Another app, GateGuru, offers information on gate amenities and real-time updates on security-line wait times.
