How do text message and push notifications work?
Text message (SMS) notifications
We can let you know when you have new Airbnb messages, reservation requests, and more via text message (SMS) alerts. These notifications may be sent at any time, based on your notification settings.
To turn text message notifications on or off and manage the types of mobile notifications you receive, visit the notifications menu in your account settings.
In the Airbnb app on your phone or tablet:
- In the Airbnb app, tap the profile icon .
- Tap Settings > Notifications.
- Manage your notifications.
On the web:
- Click your name in the top-right corner of airbnb.com.
- Select Account.
- Click Notifications in the menu on the left side of your screen.
- Look for the Mobile Notifications / Text Messages pane. You can manage your settings here.
When you opt in to text message (SMS) notifications, we'll send you a text to confirm your signup.
We only support sending SMS on carriers in North America and Europe. Standard message and data rates may apply for any messages sent or received, so it's best to contact your wireless provider to confirm. Participating carriers: AT&T, CBW, nTelos, Sprint, Nextel, Boost, Virgin Mobile, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, and Alltel.
If you use Airbnb's mobile app, we can also send push notifications straight to your smart phone. You can enable them from the app's Settings menu.
