Real ID Or Fake? Bar Bouncers Can Tell Through New App

Posted: Updated:

Bar and restaurant owners can now check ID's using a smartphone app.

A bartender aims their phone at the barcode on a driver's license, and within seconds, the app verifies the person's name, age and whether the license is real.

The app also has a database of pictures that show what various licenses look like to help detect duds.
