Does Airbnb Verify ID on Guest prior to allowing them to book?

I have a person who is attempting to book for 26 days and doesn't appear to have been Identified.


He has not prior stays with Airbnb as a guest.  


My profile states not kid friendly and this person is booking for 2 adults and 2 children. 


Not sure how to handle this.

@Patrick2689  We require our potential guests all to have the most up to date profile possible and we don’t hesitate to politely point out to potential guests our requirements and those requirements specifically for Canada. 

Note: “Identity verification by Airbnb isn’t an endorsement, a guarantee of someone’s identity, or an assurance that interacting with them will be safe. Always use your own best judgment, and follow our safety tips for  guestsand Hosts.”

Here is a very useful AirBnb link you can provide potential guests with an incomplete profile.


I hope this helps/Glenn
