Airbnb adds multi-factor authentication after account takeover fraud

Tuesday 18 April 2017 | 10:14 AM CET

Airbnb has introduced multi-factor authentication to protect its customers against cyber attacks, such as phishing, malware and password dumps.

Airbnb recently updated its security measures after some hosts’ homes were robbed by hackers posing as Airbnb users. Besides multi-factor authentication, Airbnb also added new forms of account alerts that the company claims will help users be more aware of what is happening with their account.

Airbnb offers hosts a USD 1 million insurance policy, and a spokesperson said hosts whose homes are burgled via account takeovers are reimbursed by the company.
