  • Delta’s app will automatically check you in to flights

Delta wants to take the hassle out of checking into your flight.

The airline on Thursday released an app update that automatically checks in travelers 24 hours before their scheduled departure time.

“We’ll automatically check you in when you open the Fly Delta app,” the update notes.

It’s unclear how users will be able to confirm they don’t have prohibited and restricted baggage items with the new automatic feature. Other details about the update weren’t available.

“The update to the Fly Delta app is in phased roll out in the app store and includes an automated check-in experience designed to help take friction out of the travel process, in response to customer feedback,” a Delta spokeswoman told CNN Tech.

Earlier this year, the company launched a pilot test at Reagan Washington National Airport, which lets some customers use fingerprint boarding passes to board the aircraft.

  • Video review: “Movies Anywhere”

“Movies Anywhere is the Voltron of streaming,” says tech news site CNET,

“Hollywood studios team up to create an app that bridges your purchases from iTunes, Amazon, Google and Vudu. If only it worked for every movie,” the site reports.

  • Equifax is dealing with yet another security issue

Equifax has taken down a webpage after a visitor reported being targeted with malicious advertising.

Security analyst Randy Abrams first discovered the malicious pop-up message when he visited the Equifax website to confirm personal data, he told CNN Tech. What he found instead was yet another security issue for the credit agency.

A malicious pop-up asked Abrams to download something claiming to be Adobe Flash. But as Ars Technica initially reported, security companies consider the file adware.

“We are aware of the situation identified on the website in the credit report assistance link,” an Equifax spokesperson said in an email. “Our IT and Security teams are looking into this matter, and out of an abundance of caution have temporarily taken this page offline.”

It’s the latest security issue for the credit agency after hackers stole data on more than 145 million people through an unpatched hole in the company’s software. Equifax announced the massive security breach last month. Federal and state agencies are now probing the hack.

The adware appeared on a part of the Equifax website where people can learn how to get a free or discounted credit report. As of Thursday afternoon, that website is no longer available.

  • Shares of TV providers drop as AT&T warns of video losses

Signs that more people are dropping their traditional TV subscriptions weighed on TV providers’ stocks Thursday.

AT&T said it lost 90,000 video subscribers in the U.S. in the third quarter. It’s a steeper drop than the same period last year, even though gains from its newer, cheaper online cable-like service, DirecTV Now, are included. DirecTV Now wasn’t available in the July-September quarter in 2016.

DirecTV Now added 300,000 subscribers in the quarter, so AT&T lost about 390,000 satellite TV and cable customers.

AT&T, which is also the No. 2 wireless carrier in the U.S., blames tough competition from both traditional TV providers like Comcast and newer digital-video services like YouTube TV. It also blames the impact from hurricanes and stricter credit standards for customers.

AT&T’s prediction, issued after the market closed Wednesday, echoed Comcast’s forecast in early September of third-quarter losses of 100,000 to 150,000 video customers due. That would be Comcast’s largest quarterly loss since 2014. Comcast also blamed competition and weather.

Rising prices for traditional TV bundles and those growing digital options are increasingly driving customers online and away from traditional TV.

“It should be clear that DirecTV, like all of its cable peers, is suffering from the ravages of cord-cutting,” MoffettNathanson analyst Craig Moffett wrote in a Wednesday night note to investors.

  • Airbnb-branded apartment building to open near Walt Disney World

Airbnb wants to prove it can be a landlord-friendly service.

The short-term rental startup announced on Thursday plans to build a 324-unit apartment building in Kissimmee, Florida — located near Walt Disney World Resorts.

The building, which will be branded as “Niido Powered by Airbnb,” is slated to open in early 2018.

The modern complex will be built by Miami-based developer Newgard Development Group. It will feature keyless entry and shared common spaces.

Here’s what makes it distinctly Airbnb: Tenants will be able to rent out their units for up to 180 nights every year.

Tenants will have access to a new app that’s integrated with Airbnb that will help them manage guest stays remotely, from overseeing check-ins to arranging cleaning and linen services.

Those who opt to rent out their apartments on Airbnb will share revenues with their landlord, Newgard said. Newgard CEO Harvey Hernandez told CNN Tech that tenants will keep 75% of the revenue. The rest will go to the development group.
