Airbnb is a global community fundamentally built on trust. A key part of that trust is maximizing transparency across our community and helping ensure our hosts and guests are who they say they are. Taking the time to confirm some basic information about yourself helps make our community a safer place for everyone.

The process should only take a few minutes and is as simple as verifying that the government-issued ID you provide matches a photo you take of yourself either on our website or in the app.

You’ll be prompted by Airbnb when this step is necessary. Once you successfully complete all the steps, you’ll receive an email confirming that the verification process is complete.

Rest assured: we take our community’s privacy very seriously, so your personal information is always protected and will never be shared.
