Setting up your account
You’ve logged in, but you need to edit your account. Where do you go? Here’s how to update your profile, manage notification settings (like receiving emails or texts), and change your password to help you set up your account just the way you like it.
Editing your personal info
Whether a Host, guest, or Airbnb is trying to reach you, it’s important to keep your account updated. Once you’re logged in, go to your Account to edit things like your email address or phone number. Note that some of this account info will be public (like your picture or first name), but we won’t share things like your government ID, payment info, or email address.

Verifying your info
Before you can book a reservation a few things need to happen, like your government ID and phone number need to be verified. You can submit a copy of your government ID—which we don’t share with Hosts or anyone else—through the identity verification system. If you need to add and verify your phone number, go to your Account and we’ll text you a code to complete the process.
