Security is always at the forefront of my mind when I’m on the road. Whether that be where I’m staying, how I’m getting there, or how I’m paying for all of the above, but not anymore – thanks to Sudo

I stayed at my first Airbnb on my latest trip to NYC, and one of the biggest reasons (besides not wanting to stay in a strangers apartment solo) was that I was worried about any personal information being shared with a total and complete stranger.  

Since my roommate made the trip with me this go around the only thing keeping me from a gorgeous apartment in the East Village vs. a stuffy hotel was myself: enter Airbnb

The app allows users to a create “Sudo” which in turns creates a separate phone number and email address as well as a virtual credit card. This is how they keep your legit contact information and payment details safe and secure. 

You store all of your actual information inside the app, but when it comes time to book a room via Airbnb or do some online shopping you’re able to use your virtual credit card to handle the transaction with the press of a button. 

Sudo took away the stress that goes along with traveling so that I could enjoy my time in New York exploring the city, taking in Fashion Week sights and sounds, and eating more than my fair share of food.

    I love the step that they’re taking with the virtual credit card. I think that’ll be the only way we pay for anything in the next few years.
