Feels like a scam. It keeps telling me my score goes up, but every time I check it nothing has changed. The price is good if they actually kept your score accurate. Apparently if you get a 7 they cancel your service. I'm right at an 8 even though it tells me "Your score went up 1! Good job!" Neither of the 2 go up. (The breaking and the one for paying attention.)

This app is flawed in monitoring your driving. It doesn't give you the option of being able to choose if you are driving or a passenger. I can sit in my rocking chair and it uses that information like I'm driving! Then they jack the premium up on you , penalizing you for the results of the flawed driving test that you have no way to see or manage. I have a spotless driving record in real time but this company's monitoring doesn't show it. I do NOT recommend this insurance.

Hi, Miranda. When your phone senses a change in location or movement, you may get a notification. If you see this when you’re not driving, it’s just a false start. Your phone realizes pretty quickly that you are not actually driving, but it still may send this notification. We appreciate your feedback and we'll be here if you need anything.

App is extremely buggy. On set up, when trying to add the lein holder for the car loan, I get all the way thru it & then it just freezes when trying to save the info. Decided I was going to cancel and magically the cancel button that was supposed to be on the app (and was there when we first signed up), suddenly can't be found. Tried emailing and received no response. Will update this review if anything changes for the better.
