Updated: Feb 12
Going through airport security can be a stressful experience, and it can be difficult to remember all the items you need to remove from your pockets and bags. One of the most important items to remember is your phone. Here, we will explore where you should put your phone when going through airport security.
1) Keep it in your carry-on bag
If your phone is in your carry-on bag, you can simply place it in one of the bins provided by the TSA. It is important to make sure that your phone is easily accessible and that you can retrieve it quickly after security.
2) Use a clear plastic bag
If you are concerned about your phone getting damaged during the security process, you can place it in a clear plastic bag. This will protect your phone from scratches and dings while it is being screened.
3) Remove it from its case
If your phone is in a bulky case, you should remove it from the case and place it in one of the bins provided by the TSA. This will allow the TSA to screen your phone more thoroughly and will ensure that there are no hidden items in the case.
4) Turn off your phone
To avoid any issues with airport security, it is a good idea to turn off your phone before going through security. This will prevent your phone from interfering with any electronic devices during the screening process.
5) Keep it accessible
To avoid any issues with airport security, it is important to keep your phone easily
accessible and to retrieve it quickly after security. This will ensure that you can quickly get back to using your phone after you have passed through security.
