Home-sharing platforms on government’s radar in China

China’s home-sharing platforms, including Airbnb, will soon be covered by the public security authority’s mass surveillance network as the first regulations governing online home rentals come into force in early 2019.

China’s coastal Zhejiang province recently launched a registration policy for home-sharing businesses, requiring all platforms to submit information on apartments for rent, hosts and guests to the local public security authority from January 1.

Under the policy, home-sharing platforms are required to check, register and report to the Zhejiang Public Security Department on the location of the apartments for rent as well as provide the name, contact and identity information of both apartment owners and guests. The check in and departure time of guests also needs reporting.
