Latest smartphone app provides more convenience and peace of mind
New State Farm® Canada App includes Telematics, the Alert water detection program and easy account access to create a must have, mobile insurance tool
Aurora, ON (June 5, 2017) – Many of us can't live without our smartphones. They're in our pockets, purses and bags and we check them often for communication, information or just force of habit. Now your phone can become the ultimate home and auto insurance tool by downloading the new State Farm Canada App for free!
Telematics, Alert and easy access to Online Services all at your fingertips
The all-new State Farm Canada App includes Telematics* – a fully mobile telematics insurance program. Telematics can help you to become a safer driver by using your smartphone to track and improve your driving in real time and then rewards you with savings of up to 25% on your auto insurance premium at renewal. - https://www.desjardinsagents.com/insurance/auto/discounts/ajusto
The app also allows you to manage your home and auto insurance easily. By logging on to your Online Services account directly from your phone you can receive instant access to your insurance policies, obtain valuable information and tips, file a claim or get an online quote, anywhere, anytime, 24/7.
And for even more peace of mind, the State Farm Canada App includes Alert, our latest home insurance prevention program that detects water leaks and risk of freezing to prevent water damage.
Customers with a home insurance policy that sign up for the Alert program will receive a free water and freeze detector. The detector is a connected device and can be placed close to a potential source of leaks like a bathroom, dishwasher or washing machine. If it senses a problem it sends an alert to your smartphone by notification, text message or email, so you can act quickly to limit any damage. Participation in the program will not lead to premium increases or changes in existing coverage, regardless of how many alerts a customer receives.
In Canada, water damage accounts for more than 50% of property insurance claims, so acting fast can prevent significant damage and avoid the disruption that comes with it.
How and where do I get it?
Call your State Farm agent to enroll in Telematics and/or Alert, and download the State Farm Canada App from the App Store® or Google Play™.
