TSA Protocol Changes At T.F. Green Airport
If you travel from T.F. Green Airport in Rhode Island, there will be new security protocols next time you go.
NBC 10 reports that TSA changes started this week and all passengers must now take out all electronics larger than a smartphone and put them in bins for scanning.
Apparently scanning laptops, tablets, etc while inside your carry on bag is no longer good enough, after new information about ISIS and other terrorist groups hiding explosives inside electronics.
NBC 10 says knives and guns will also be checked for, but explosives remain the biggest concern.
TSA agents are being trained in this new protocol to look for explosives, so expect security checks to take a little longer at T.F. Green from here on out.
