Airbnb forbids the use of interior security cameras

Airbnb has implemented a worldwide ban on indoor security cameras in rental properties.They announced this on Monday.

Before, Airbnb allowed hosts to have security cameras inside their homes in shared areas as long as they told guests about them on the listing page and put the cameras where guests could see them. Security cameras used inside buildings were not allowed in places where people sleep and bathrooms.

The new rules say that indoor security cameras are not allowed in any listing anymore, no matter where they are or why they were put there.

“We wanted to make new, easy-to-understand rules to give our community a better idea of what to expect on Airbnb,” said Juniper Downs, who is in charge of community policy and partnerships at Airbnb. She said this in a blog post on Monday.

Downs said that they made a new rule after talking to guests, hosts, and privacy experts.

The company said most Airbnb listings don’t have security cameras. This means only a few hosts will be affected by the new policy.

People who have security cameras inside their homes need to take them out by April 30. After this date, if a host breaks the new rules, they could be in trouble like getting their listing removed or their account taken down from the platform.

You can still have doorbell cameras and other outdoor security cameras at Airbnb. Hosts have to tell their guests if they have outdoor cameras and where they are before the guests book their stay.

Many people who rent Airbnb homes get annoyed by the security cameras inside the houses. The update on Monday comes about a week after “Saturday Night Live” made jokes about cameras in an Airbnb’s toilet.
