Data Usage and Smartphone Information

Will the app use my smartphone's data plan?

The NJM SafeDrive app uses minimal amounts of data. The app will automatically use WiFi if available, before using your data plan. If data plan use is a concern, enable the Only upload over WiFi setting. Trips will be recorded and will automatically upload once the smartphone is connected to a WiFi network.

The mobile app uses the phone's GPS while driving. Battery usage is similar to other GPS applications.

Please Note: The battery must be charged at least 15% for the trip detection to start.

What security is in place to protect my trip data?

The protection of policyholder information is extremely important to us. Trip data is collected and used in accordance with an end-user license agreement and NJM's Privacy Policy.
