Default Have I ever been 10-Printed? DS160 question...

I genuinely don't know the answer to the question on the DS160 that says "have I ever been 10 printed"... have I?

I genuinely don't remember much about which fingers have been taken when they have previously taken my fingerprint scans at POE and also at the interview for my previous L1 on those machines next to the booths...

Can anyone help?

Probably not. They want to know if you're in the FBI database.

Reasons for being there:
- Criminal
- Any immigrant who's had full biometrics done
- Many US professionals who require a license
- Some children in US school district where misguided board sacrificed the freedom of their charges for false security

If you work in the financial industry and have taken any of the exams administered by FINRA you would have submitted fingerprints.

I wonder why they need to ask the applicant this question. Why can't they just ask the FBI?

Federal agencies cooperating with each other? Bet you believe in world peace and cuddly puppies, too!

Given the length of time an FBI namecheck can apparently take, thank God they don't.

Ten printing means that all of your fingerprints were taken rather than just your index fingers.

They do this at visa interviews now - i'm not sure since when though.

The OP may have missed this, but when filling out the online DS-160 form there are little info buttons next to each question. I can't remember whether you have to click or just mouseover those, but when you do so it brings up a brief explanation. This is how I found out what "ten printing" means.
