Security Scanning Your ID

594 Views 18 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Atom guy
So one of the local colleges erected a guard shack at the entrance during covid, but generally still just waived Uber drivers through. After covid waned they really never stopped anyone (great job if you can get it!). But today I go there to do a drop off, and now they have a big sign and are asking for ID from everyone in the car. The security guard wanted my ID and my passenger's ID. My passenger didn't have a government ID on her, but I handed mine over like a sheep, and the guy actually scanned it with his computer! WTF. After I left I got mad about it, and decided that I wasn't going back there to get my ID scanned every time. Sure enough my next trip is a pick up at that university. I messaged the passenger and told him I wasn't coming because I didn't want my ID scanned, and asked him to cancel the trip. After some arguing, I ended up cancelling the trip.

What do you think? Do you hand your ID over to get scanned?

When they scan your ID it gives exactly the information that is supposed to be on the front of the card and that is all.

It's easier to scan it than have the guys sit there and type it in by hand especially when people are a "hunt and peck" typers.

I do believe it's also illegal to do a background check on somebody without prior permission.
Completely untrue. They also get your middle name, address, your telephone number, your date of birth and your social security number. That is all the information needed to steal your identity. Do you really want some minimum wage security guard to have that information?

The information on the front IS in the scan exactly as it should be. This prevents identification forging. I didn't say that was the only thing that was in the scan.

Your social security number is not listed on a driver's license, registration or insurance.

Federal law prevents ssn from ANY state driver license.

All that information that you listed pertains to the DMV which also if applicable printed on the license itself.
Except that your SSN is contained in the barcode. It is just not available on the license in human readable form.
Every insurance company I have ever dealt with has required I disclose my SSN. This is because your credit rating affects your insurance premium.
