Instead of a wristband or PDF ticket, you are provided an “Add to Wallet” link, installing the ticket, credential, or cashless payment method directly to your device's native digital wallet. Passport uses a secure system that encrypts tickets, credentials, and cashless payment methods directly onto your phone. Transfer multiple passes to your friends easily by sending them a simple link.
Our smart system detects that you are near the entrance and a notification to your ticket shows up on your device's lock screen. Tap the notification, and your ticket is shown on your screen, ready to use.
Simply wave your phone near the scanner. A green light indicates you are good to enter the event. Our scanners are designed to allow for completely contactless entry. They can be mounted anywhere and over 100 LEDs and a loud audio response allow the security team to monitor from a safe distance.
Securely pay for event food, drinks, and activations with a swipe of your phone. No cards, apps, or long lines needed. Our smart system detects that when you are near a vendor or special activation. A notification with custom experiences and vendor deals shows up on your device's lock screen. Instantly upgrade passes or credentials without needing to go to the box office.
Passport is a new access control ecosystem that uses cutting-edge technology with a best-in-class platform to deliver the most frictionless, secure and robust solution on the market. A quick, seamless and secure entry to your event is critical, yet many current solutions fall short. Barcodes or QR code tickets are simple and can be delivered digitally, however are rife with fraud and require the guest to find the ticket on their phone, turn up the brightness and slow down the line.
RFID wristbands solve many issues for large-scale events, offering great security and relative ease on site. However, they require the producer order them months ahead of time which causes inventory issues or overspend. Plus, the guest has to receive them in the mail and risk losing them, or wait in additional 'wristband exchange' line on-site.
Passport combines benefits of both, using a digitally-distributed ticket that is stored on your digital wallet. It's virtually impossible to defraud and entry is as simple as tapping your phone on our scanners...even with the screen locked or off!Passport hardware is designed for ruggedness, working in all-weather conditions and even if the network or power goes down.
That just scratches the surface of the benefits of Passport to your event. Simply put, it's event access, redefined.
Passport uses your iPhone or Android's built-in "digital wallet" to store the event ticket. We encode it directly onto your phone in the same way your credit card is securely stored on Apple Pay or Google Pay. The system is backed by government-grade security and there's no barcode or QR code that can be duplicated.
Our entry scanners are designed to access the ticket using your phone's native NFC functionality. In much the same way you 'tap to pay' using Apple Pay or Google Pay, you 'tap to enter' your event. In fact, our scanners are designed to find your ticket even with your screen off!
Nope! We found many events have low app adoption and requiring an app download often leads to a poor user experience.
Unlike existing solutions, all the features of Passport work without an app and use the native functionality of your phone to pull up your passes and send push notifications.
Any iPhone/iOS or Android phones with NFC functionality. Additionally, this works on Apple Watches and other wearables.

For guests who's phones aren't supported, our system is backwards compatible with RFID, so they'll be able to receive an RFID wristband to provide entry and access across the site.
Our validation hardware is the result of 6 years of development and real-world deployment.
