Yes, Allstate Drivewise tracks location for things like underwriting purposes, helping to speed up claims processes, and to give you accurate details of your trips. Your location information does not directly determine your premium or discounts, though.
Why Allstate Drivewise Tracks Location
- Drivewise tracks your location using a smartphone app to measure speed, hard braking, and time of day you typically drive more accurately.
- Location information can be used to determine how far you travel on each trip, as well as your average speed.
- Stored location data may be used during the claims process to better analyze the details of the incident, such as speed and location layout.
- If you use the accident detection feature, Drivewise may automatically initiate a call for emergency assistance if an incident is detected.
- Drivewise saves maps of your trips using your GPS location data so you can review areas where you may need to improve your driving habits.
