Toys-R-Us To Verify You-R-U

The 1,400-store chain Toys "R" Us is adding identity verification software to 832 of its U.S. stores, according to documents filed with the SEC on Tuesday, the Associated Press has reported.

The software, revealed in an SEC filing from the software vendor (Intelli-Check), will start being used at chain's customer service counters, but will then move to POS lanes, the AP story said. Intelli-Check typically uses government identification--usually military IDs and state-issued driver's licenses--to authenticate consumers.
