Airbnb controversy: user reported hidden cameras in her rental

A woman took to social media to express her dissatisfaction with the discovery of hidden cameras in a house she rented through Airbnb.

In a Twitter thread yesterday, June 12, user @foxytaughtyou mentioned that she and a friend discovered hidden cameras in the form of fire sprinklers in a house they rented in Philadelphia through that platform.

She even published pictures of the cameras in the rooms, the living room, and even the shower.

“BE CAUTIOUS BOOKING AIR BNBs! My friend & I recently stayed at a air bnb in Philadelphia with over 10 hidden cameras all over the house,” she tweets.

“Including the showers and bedrooms. Some were disguised as sprinkler systems but it has a camera lens,” the tweet continues.

This house was listed in the name of a company, so they did not know the owner with whom they only talked through messages, since he did not answer their calls.

She is not satisfied with Airbnb actions

The user pointed out that Airbnb did not reimburse them what they paid for the stay, despite the fact that they reported the fact that they experienced. “They just moved us to a different Airbnb somewhere else.”

Although she also filed a complaint with the Police last Friday at noon, she assured that they have not had a response and that she fears what can be done with the material that was recorded by those cameras.

In response to the thread of the complaint made by the woman, Airbnb replied that they’re willing to help with the case.

“We’d like to reiterate our willingness to help. Send us the email address linked to your Airbnb account via DM so our team can follow up. Thank you” said a tweet response from the company.
