What is State Auto Safety 360?

State Auto Safety 360 is a telematics program available as part of our Personal Lines Auto product.

  • Typically, car insurance rates are based on demographics like age, driving record or where you live. State Auto Safety 360 uses a small leave-in device plugged into your car to gather data about how you drive, and then personalizes your insurance premium based on your actual driving behavior: speed, acceleration, time of day and braking.
  • You can check your driving score on a mobile app, and if needed, improve your habits to become a safer driver.
  • If you're driving score shows safer driving, you have the opportunity to get discounts on your auto insurance!
  • More than 70 percent of State Auto customers using telematics are receiving at least a 10 percent discount on their auto insurance. We give up to 50 percent!
