What should I consider when offering internet access to guests?

Most guests expect wireless internet as an amenity. Your listing will appear when people search or filter for spaces with internet.

It may be useful to tell guests that if they use your network, they agree to use it only for legal purposes and they promise not to use it for illegal uploading, downloading, or other illegal activities.

We encourage hosts to use wi-fi safety best practices:

  • Create an encrypted (ex: WPA2) guest network, and only share that password with guests after they’ve confirmed their booking
  • Store your router and modem in a secure, locked location in your space that guests can’t access
  • Create strong passwords for your router and modem, and change them often
  • Routinely check your router and modem for software updates
