Speed & Boundary Alerts

Help new drivers learn the rules of the road.

Having newly licensed drivers behind the wheel can be stressful. With Speed & Boundary Alerts, you can hand over the keys with confidence. Hum lets you set a maximum speed and boundary area for your car, and sends you notifications when either is exceeded. It's a smart way to encourage responsible, safe driving for both new and elderly drivers.

Now you can

  • Encourage safe driving

    Speed Alerts can help you worry less when they take the wheel. Get an alert when your car goes over a certain speed to help your teen driver build trust and avoid driving at unsafe speeds.

  • Stay in the know

    Boundary Alerts can help give you peace of mind while your car is out on the road, no matter who's driving. Set location boundaries and get notified when your car enters or exits those areas.

Very pleased with the information received from Hum regarding any required maintenance on my vehicle. It's also helpful when the driving speed exceeds the limits I set! Keeps my younger drivers in check!

How it works

You can set multiple Speed & Boundary Alerts per car, alerts can be sent via text and/or email, and you can determine which family members get sent alerts.

Speed Alerts

Create speed limits and get alerts when your car exceeds those speeds. Speed Alerts do not limit how fast your car can go, they notify you when set speeds are broken.

Boundary Alerts

Create boundaries on a map and get notified when your car enters or exits those areas. You set the boundary area(s) and times that the alerts are active.


Frequently Asked Questions

Driving History can be emailed as a downloadable CSV file. Other parent-friendly features include Vehicle Location, Boundary Alerts and Speed Alerts.

  • When does Hum use my GPS location?

    Hum+ / Humx
    Hum uses GPS for features including Safety Score, Navigation, Vehicle Location, Driving History, Boundary Alerts and Parking Reminders.

    The Safety Score and Navigation features identify your GPS location based on your smartphone. Features including Vehicle Location, Driving History, Pinpoint Roadside Assistance, and Emergency Assistance identify the GPS location of the vehicle where the Hum OBD Reader is installed.

    To change how Hum uses your GPS location, you can remove the Hum equipment from your vehicle or edit your smartphone's privacy settings.

    The Hum App uses your GPS location for Safety Score and the Navigation features.

  • What app features are available to account owners and primary and secondary users?

    The account holder has access to all features and account settings. Primary drivers and secondary drivers (if different from the account holder) have access to most Hum dashboard features, but cannot access functions such as Vehicle Location, Boundary Alerts and Speed Alerts, nor can they manage or change account settings.
