Recent traveler Zach Klein thought he was in trouble when he reached airport security and realized he’d left his government-issued ID at home. But that was until the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) told him he could use his Facebook profile as proof of his identity instead. The Vimeo co-founder and CEO of DIY.org was so shocked, he Tweeted about it:
Got to the airport, realized I left my ID at home. TSA allowed me to use my Facebook profile instead.
