Remember when you weren’t 21 and you tried to sneak into a bar with your friends? Those days are over now, and the new generation of underage kids won’t be able to experience that.

Now there is an app that helps bars spot fake IDs.

The BarZapp app lets smartphones read the bar-coded information on the back of driver’s licenses to instantly reveals the person’s name, date of birth and ID validity.

Its makers say it can also be used by store clerks selling other age-restricted goods such as alcohol, cigarettes, movies and firearms.
