What is Passport?
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.
How does Passport work?
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.
Who is WRSTBND?
WRSTBND is an event technology partner that was born from over a decade of event production experience. Our RFID, ticketing, credential and mobile app services have powered some of the largest events in the country. Now, we're thrilled to add Passport, the culmination of years of development, as a flagship product.
Does the guest need an app for it to work?
Nope! We found many events have low app adoption and requiring an app download often leads to a poor user experience.
How do I transfer tickets to my friends?
If you buy multiple tickets, sending your friends their passes is as simple as emailing or texting them a link. Once they tap the link, their pass will download directly to their phone.
What happens if a phone runs out of battery or gets lost?
Our system is the most flexible on the market, and can accept Passport NFC, RFID and QR codes.
Can Passport support event credentials?
The security features make Passport an exceptional solution for event credentials. While staff laminates and wristbands can be abused by being passed back and re-sold, Passport credentials are stored directly on a phone and can't be transfered. This means that to abuse your Passport Credentials, you'd have to sell your phone to someone else.
Allowing complex zone types and logic assigned to individuals
Your digital pass can contain text or a link with information on exactly what access types your pass include
Reissuing and upgrading credentials can be instantaneous and done from a remote location
Our push notification feature allows department heads and others to efficiently communicate directly with all of their staff at any time

Does Passport drain phone battery?
NFC does not drain battery. Your phone's NFC features are on by default and there is no way to turn it off on it your iPhone (Android's can disable NFC).
What happens if the phone is not supported?
If your phone does not have Apple Pay or Google Pay, no problem! Our system is backwards compatible with RFID, so you'll be able to receive an RFID wristband to provide you entry and access across the site.
Is Passport contactless?
Yes! Passport's technology allows for a guest to enter an event by waving their phone on a free-standing scanner.
Can Passport assist with contact-tracing?
Yup! One of the unique features of Passport is the option to require all tickets to be registered to an individual person.
