About Root Inc.

We started by tackling the archaic car insurance industry with Root Insurance, the nation’s first licensed insurance carrier powered entirely by mobile. Using data and technology, we bring fairness into our pricing by basing rates primarily on how people actually drive, not their demographics—including a commitment to remove credit score from car insurance pricing. The result is personalized car insurance for good drivers, better rates, and an easy-to-use mobile app experience available in 34 states and counting. 

Root also offers renters insurance in 9 states and homeowners insurance in 13 states, providing seamless and affordable bundle options and mobile-based coverage. 

We’re also empowering carriers and fleet owners through Root Enterprise, providing our mobile technology platforms and risk management to help measure driving behavior and minimize liability.
