1) They see us naked
Yes, you read it right! There are some airports, there are special scanners that are also called Naked Scanners. It means an airport employee sees the person naked while they walk through the scanner.
2) They can figure out off behavior
In some of the airports, there are people, called as profilers. Their work is to analyze the passengers – their body language, behavior, gestures etc. They do so to detect suspicious people. They carefully notice the non-verbal signs of anxiety like licking their lips, itching, or, for example, looking around a lot. Profilers work in both the main halls and in passport control. Their most asked question is…What is your purpose to visit?

5) They know what is in your hands
There are sometimes when the airport staff asks you to rub your hands on a piece of fabric before putting it in into a special machine. This machine is called an atomizer. This machine detects chemicals or drugs and alerts them about the danger.
