What is Signal?
Signal is a smartphone app that monitors your driving behavior — for example, things like your braking habits, phone use, and speed. It can help you stay better focused on driving by encouraging you to put down the phone and practice safer habits. Upon policy renewal, you could save money based on your safe driving. However, risker driving behavior could raise your premium at renewal.
Signal also comes with CrashAssist, another great benefit of being a Farmers customer. This app feature can help detect if you’ve been in a crash and send help, if you want it.
Using Signal could reward you in other ways, too: Every month, if you drive safely with a focused driving time at 80% or better and use the app, you’re automatically entered into a drawing for rewards worth up to $100.***

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I earn the youthful driver component of Signal?**
Any driver aged 15 to 24 in your household can enroll in Signal. Once the youthful driver has met the qualification requirements, you can qualify for the additional discount amount. Households with more than one youthful driver enrolled can earn a single youthful driver discount amount based on the age of the youngest driver.
How can monitoring my driving help me become a safer driver?
Much of our driving is instinctive and automatic. Getting a close view of your driving behavior can help you learn what you’re really doing behind the wheel and allow you to make changes. Signal monitors behaviors including:
- When you’re distracted by phone use
- How excessively you hard brake
- How often you speed
- When you drive — whether in rush-hour or light traffic
- How many miles you drive
How does my driving behavior impact my premium?*
Safe driving behaviors reflected in the data collected from the Signal app could result in a policy premium discount at renewal. Riskier driving behaviors, however, could result in a higher renewal premium rather than a discount.
The Signal app looks at the percentage of enrolled drivers on the policy using the app, whether one or more youthful driver(s) are enrolled and the driving behavior results of all applicable drivers.
Note: Signal looks at the big picture of your driving habits. As more trips are captured, your driving behavior results will become more in line with your overall driving patterns.
