Airbnb background check



Background report mistakes on the Airbnb site are getting more and more frequent. Such mistakes have the potential to profoundly impact the lives of users—hosts and visitors alike. Research indicates that mistakes in up to 25% of background reports can result in inaccurate account deactivations or other dire repercussions.

The most often occurring error categories in Airbnb background reports are listed in the table below:

Error TypeOverall Case %
Thirty percent of the criminal history records are inaccurate30%
Inaccuracies in conviction records20%
Errors in personal data20%
Errors other than those listed10%

Human mistake as well as technology malfunctions in data collecting and processing are among the many causes of these mistakes. It is critical to realize that even a little mistake in a background report can have dire repercussions, such as being refused lodging or having a reservation canceled.

To guarantee customer safety and service dependability, Airbnb routinely verifies its users. Errors still happen, though, and users frequently find themselves in circumstances when their accounts are terminated or they are refused access to the network because of inaccurate information. To make things right and get paid, under such circumstances, one needs expert legal counsel.

Customer Complaint Examples

Typical Airbnb consumer complaints are as follows:

  • John, 32: “Apart from never having any legal problems, I got a notification from Airbnb claiming I have a criminal history. My account criminal record was therefore deleted by Airbnb, and I am unable to use the site anymore.”
  • Sarah, 28: “After a check, my account was disabled. Airbnb removed my criminal record from my account because they got inaccurate information from Inflection Risk Solutions.”
