About Airbnb, Inc. and the Potential Legal Violation

Airbnb is a platform where hosts who have spaces they are willing to open up to travelers connect with people looking for accommodations. Instead of staying in a hotel, guests can stay in a comfortable, home-like setting while they are on vacation or have business out of town. Founded only 12 years ago, Airbnb currently has 20% of the market share for online reservations. As part of their identity verification, users of their platform are asked to upload facial photos.  In using these photos for verification, Airbnb may have violated the Biometric Information Privacy Act.
