I’d like to make managing my several Airbnb properties easier and have looked at property management software like @Guesty, @iGMS, and @smartbnb.io, but these all actually ask for your Airbnb login and password. Even if I decided I was willing to give them that, and their security measures were somehow 100% ironclad, wouldn’t I clearly be violating Airbnb’s terms and conditions by using them? These clauses in the new TaC especially stand out:
4.5: “You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Airbnb Account credentials and may not disclose your credentials to any third party… You are liable for any and all activities conducted through your Airbnb Account.”
4.6: “No third party is authorized by Airbnb to ask for your credentials, and you shall not request the credentials of another Member.”
Maybe I’m being paranoid, but in my town Airbnb has shut down users for a lot less - managing multiple properties, for example - and I’m sure they could detect and punish these sorts of logins at the drop of a hat. So although I love the management capabilities of the software options, it seems I’d be crazy to risk my little business for them.
Any thoughts? Or has anyone found an property management software that doesn’t flout Airbnb’s terms and conditions as these appear to? Thanks.
