Description

It have been revealed by The App Analyst that Airbnb it logging a huge amount of data about you.

Conclusion

If any user feels uncomfortable with the amount of data they send to Airbnb's third-party partners there are methods to prevent this. This can be done by stopping the DNS server they use from resolving the following names: api3.siftscience.com, notify.bugsnag.com, graph.facebook.com, and *.mparticle.com.

Once again this is the trade-off between security and usability. Hopefully this blog allows users to make an informed decision on how they share that data.

We have of curse added the domains listed in the quote to our DNS

  • api3.siftscience.com
  • notify.bugsnag.com
  • graph.facebook.com
  • *.mparticle.com
