Our new technology solution blocks cell phone activity while your teen is driving, putting you in control of how much they text, email, surf the web, and talk on the phone — if at all.
You can protect your teen from texting and driving (among other distractions)
When you call us to request the tool, we'll send you a small telematics device. All you have to do is plug the device into the car's onboard diagnostics port (standard on all vehicles produced after 1996), install the app on your teen's Android™, BlackBerry®, or Windows® Phone, and customize your settings.* The device and app then work together via Bluetooth technology.
Once set up, you'll be able to fully customize your teen's block lists, ensuring, for example, that they can't text and drive, but they can access driving directions and receive calls from you. (Note that the tool does not prevent your teen from making emergency calls.)
Plus, there's no need to worry that your teen will find a way around the app — attempts to disable the app or remove the device will trigger a notification to you.
Commercial fleets rely on this app to prevent distracted driving
And now it's free for Esurance customers with young drivers on their policies.** Just call 1-800-ESURANCE today to learn more and get your teen started!
