Airbnb said that it's extremely rare. But there have been multiple cases of hidden cameras found in its rental properties.

In New York City on Wednesday, police arrested a man for a camera hidden in a charger facing the toilet in a property he rented.

The victim recalls being asked what time she typically uses the bathroom.

In October, an Indiana couple found a camera pointed at their bed during their Florida vacation. 


"Airbnb takes privacy extremely seriously and there is absolutely no place in our community for this kind of illegal and outrageous behavior. The individual involved has been permanently banned from our community and we have reached out to law enforcement to offer our assistance with their investigation. We hope justice will be served quickly. Cameras are never allowed in bathrooms or bedrooms and any other camera must be disclosed ahead of time.”
