Direct Auto Insurance released two mobile device capabilities that can help customers monitor their driving habits, potentially save money on their auto insurance and make paying their insurance premiums more convenient.

The free DirectDrive app for iOS and Android grades users based on safe and responsible driving. The DirectDrive app enables users to monitor and track good driving habits using only a smartphone’s various sensors to measure driving behaviors, such as hard stops, accelerations and decelerations.

A text message payment option also is available to pay the Direct Auto Insurance bill through their mobile phones. As long as customers have a mobile phone and a bank account, they can text in their monthly payments either one day before or up to three days after a due date without late payment fees. Users also can receive quotes and locate the nearest Direct Auto Insurance location through the app, while current customers can pay their bill through a secure, one-touch payment system, Direct Auto said.
