How to Take Your Laptop through Airport Security

Part of the Laptops All-in-One For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Going through airport security with a laptop can be nerve-wracking. How do you make sure your notebook gets safely through the airport X-ray if you're on the other side?

  • Travel with a wing man or wing woman. Let your confederate go through the metal detector ahead of you and wait for valuables to arrive.

  • If you're traveling alone, try this procedure:

    1. Put your wallet, cell phone, keys, and other valuables in zipper pockets of your jacket.

    2. Send items through the X-ray machine in reverse order of their value:

    • Shoes

    • Books and papers

    • Laptop case (minus the laptop itself)

    • Jacket

    • Your laptop

    3. When you see the laptop go through the scanner, go through the metal detector.
