Safety Score

Make a habit of safe driving habits.

There’s always room for improvement behind the wheel. That’s why Safety Score uses your phone to create a safe driving score based on your acceleration, speed, braking, cornering, and phone use while driving. It's a fun, educational way for families to foster safe driving habits. And for a little friendly competition, see how all of your safe driving scores measure up on the Leaderboard.

Both my wife and I have the Hum in our cars. We think the units help us to be safer while driving, and we like it when we get alerted when something is wrong with the cars.

How it works

Your Safety Score is determined by analyzing a number of areas including: hard braking, rapid acceleration, speeding (based on posted speed limits), sharp cornering, and phone use while driving. Additional factors, such as miles driven, also influence your score. Your score is derived from data gathered by your smartphone's sensors, not the Hum OBD (On-Board Diagnostics) Reader. Therefore, your smartphone with the Hum App must be in the vehicle for Safety Score to work.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When will I get my first Safety Score?

    You don't have to wait long. Safety Score information is typically updated a few minutes after the end of each trip. The more trips you take the more accurate your score will be.

    Hum+ / Humx

    It's easy! In the Hum App, tap on Safety Score to see your weekly trip details including trip date and time, miles driven, duration and route. You can also invite friends and family to share their Safety Score with you. You can view details about your recent trips, such as start and end point, by accessing Driving History in the Hum App or Hum Web Portal.
