Airbnb Bans Hidden Cameras

Following reports that Airbnb hosts were secretly surveilling guests using hidden cameras placed in highly invasive locations such as bedrooms and bathrooms, the company announced a new privacy policy prohibiting indoor cameras in its rentals. This change will help protect Airbnb guests from unwanted surveillance and privacy and civil rights groups have welcomed Airbnb’s indoor-camera ban as a “privacy and safety win.”
