How does the app know when I'm driving versus being a passenger?

Review your trips to make sure they’re classified correctly as “driving” or “not driving.” This helps the app learn your habits, especially in the beginning as you start the “train your app” exercise.


Our data science team also incorporates known public transit routes, times of day, repeated trips, and information from thousands of test rides to be able to classify trips accurately.

Once you’ve trained your app and start driving with it, make sure to classify your trips accurately—your “not driving” trips help us reward you for your personal driving habits versus others.

We recommend you check your app at least once a week—a quick swipe lets you edit, if needed.

Remember, when you're driving it's important that your phone is off limits and out of use so it doesn't affect your Distraction Free score.
