TSA is introducing further security measures in response to intelligence of terror groups creating bombs that may be able to get through the current security measures. This new measure of security now allows security to ask passengers to power-up their devices and if they are not able to, their devices will have to be left behind.
This is creating a frenzy in the demand for charging stations at airports and puts travelers at a risk of losing their beloved electronic devices. However, the new security measure is implemented to increase safety for passengers to make sure terror groups don’t have another opportunity for an attack. Direct flights to the US will not be allowed if the airport doesn’t implement this security measure.
