First of all, this is a fantastic forum. As a new host, it has been so informative and I’ve been picking up a lot of useful info.
I just received a booking request, so, as I typically do, I ventured over to their profile to check them out, and saw that there were 2 profile pictures. First one was very normal, and then the second was a QR code. I scanned it, thinking it may be a clever way of adding additional information to the profile (or…a way to perhaps circumvent Air’s algorithms to provide info off the system), and it was a cell # and a message. I don’t know if it’s the guest’s phone number, it could have been, but I accidentally called it (and promptly hung up).
So I messaged the person and asked about it, just saying hey, did you know that you have a QR code with a phone number that may be yours on your profile that anyone can scan and access? haha. To which he replied that he didn’t know why it was there…but it’s not like he asked to book off of the system (which I would never do anyway).
Has anyone else seen this? I’m thinking it was just a mistake. Thanks in advance!
