The firm has implemented technology that looks at a potential renter's history on Airbnb.

Airbnb says it will employ new measures to detect and prevent people from using the short-term rental business to hold parties.

The firm announced Tuesday that it has implemented technology that looks at a potential renter's history on Airbnb, how far they live from the place they want to rent, whether they're renting during the week or on the weekend, and other variables.

Airbnb stated that the screening mechanism it is implementing for listings in the United States and Canada has been tested in areas of Australia since last October, where it resulted in a 35% decrease in illegal parties.

The technology is intended to prevent a customer's reservation request

According to the San Francisco-based firm, the technology is intended to prevent a customer's reservation request from ever reaching the host of the property in question. People who are unable to rent a full property may be able to lease a single room since the host is more likely to be present.

Since 2019, when a Halloween home party in a San Francisco neighborhood culminated in a shooting that killed five people, Airbnb has been under increasing pressure to crack down on gatherings.

Airbnb issued a global party ban on its listings and prohibited persons under the age of 25

The following year, Airbnb issued a global party ban on its listings and prohibited persons under the age of 25 from renting a full property near their home unless they had a track record of favorable ratings on the site. The party restriction was originally intended to be a temporary health precaution during the epidemic, but it was declared permanent in June.
