Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Should we be searching for hidden spy cameras in Airbnbs and hotels?

Call a taxi or touch the display for an Uber? People can choose their ride from many options in many places around the world. Also, travelers can choose a room from accommodation options, such as hotels, motels, inns, and also vacation rental booking services. They provide search engines for vacation rentals by matching those who want to offer their rooms for rent and those who are seeking accommodation. Travelers can not only stay in a less expensive room but also expect more local, homey experience than a conventional hotel stay.

Airbnb is a leading search service provider operating a global online marketplace and hospitality service with over five million listings worldwide. Sounds accommodating the needs for both room providers and renters, doesn’t it? But just like a few cases occurred in rideshare services, there are also criminal cases in room share services. And even though it is not as violent as sexual assaults, there are cases where travelers’ privacy is seriously breached, as the recent case in motel rooms in South Korea (Vol.2542, March 28). When a family from New Zealand stayed in a room in Ireland booked via Airbnb, they found a hidden video camera live streaming their room. Though it is an isolated incident, you may want to make sure that there are no bed or electronic bugs in your room. Indeed, no matter how many stars are shown on the website or app, safety, privacy, and cleanliness are the top priorities for accommodation.

Enjoy reading and learn how to find hidden cameras in a room.
