Is it safe to purchase auto insurance online?

Online safety and security

If you are dealing with a reputable auto insurance company, you shouldn’t have to worry about the security of purchasing insurance online. Most, if not all, online auto insurance companies use data encryption systems to protect your personal and payment information to ensure that it remains private.

Before entering your information, you should read the privacy policy of the Web site to find out what they do with your info once you input it.

To determine if the company you are dealing with is reputable, you can contact your state’s insurance commissioner to be sure they are licensed properly and do not have a history of complaints.

If you are still hesitant to enter your payment information online, you can always get your free auto insurance quote online and then call the customer service number to buy the actual policy by telephone or mail.
