how does digital proof of insurance work?

If you accidentally forgot to stash your updated ID card in your glove box — don't worry. Many states have laws that allow motorists to display electronic proof of insurance on their smartphones and tablets as sufficient evidence of auto coverage in case they get pulled over.

And with Esurance Mobile, accessing digital insurance ID cards (and your Esurance policy in general) couldn't be easier. All you have to do is download our handy app and you can pull up your proof of insurance in a snap — you can even email your ID cards directly from the app to keep things simple at the scene of an accident, or if you need to show proof to your employer or anyone else.

What's more, you can also pay your bill, check your coverages and limits, and manage your entire car insurance policy with a few swipes of your finger. How's that for convenience?
