Account hacking

Here is a thread from the ‘official’ abnb host forum…worth reading through.

Airbnb really needs multi-factor authentication. I’ve had a situation where a guest’s account got hacked and they actually checked-in. The original guest didn’t even know until the last day. After looking at the surveillance footage, I noticed the guests were probably not the ones that hacked the account. it looks like there’s a criminal body that hacks these accounts and gives them to druggies or others with nefarious intent. This could potentially put the host in a very dangerous position. MFA will mitigate this.
