    If you think going through security lines at airports is already a hassle, be prepared: It could get worse.

    The Transportation Security Administration is testing tighter screening of carry-on bags at 10 U.S. airports, including those in Boston, Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale and Lubbock, Texas. The agency could expand the new procedures to other airports, CNBC reported.

    What's changed?

    "Travelers will be asked to place electronics larger than a cell phone in a bin separately for X-ray screening. TSA officers may also advise travelers to place other carry-on items separately in a bin," said Darby LaJoye, TSA assistant administrator for security operations.
