AARP SafeTrip FAQs

How does the AARP SafeTrip app work?

AARP SafeTrip is a smartphone app for iOS and Android that gives you feedback about your driving, helping you become a safer and better driver. AARP SafeTrip gathers data from your smartphone’s position and inertial sensors and measures driving quality based on:

- Hard acceleration

- Hard braking

- Hard cornering

- Speeding

- Phone usage while driving

Does it cost money to download and use AARP SafeTrip?

There is no charge to download or use the app. However, your wireless service provider's connectivity or usage rates may apply. Also, AARP SafeTrip does not include any in-app purchases.

Is my AARP SafeTrip data shared with anyone else?

Respecting your privacy is an important part of our commitment to providing an excellent service and product. Your personal information and individually collected data will be treated as described in the AARP privacy policy. AARP will share a user’s name, email address and other limited information needed with its service providers to connect a user’s AARP SafeTrip account to the user’s AARP Rewards account and provide services—see AARP’s privacy policy for more information on AARP’s data sharing practices (Privacy Policy). The information AARP SafeTrip collects about your driving belongs to you and will not be sent to your insurance company.

Will the email and password I use for work for the AARP SafeTrip app?

Yes, you can sign into the app with the same email and password that you use for your AARP online account. If you don’t have an AARP online account and would like to set one up, click here to create an account. Or, if you’re having trouble signing in, or still have a question, please contact us.

Is AARP SafeTrip compatible with my smartphone?

AARP SafeTrip should be compatible with most new or late-model iPhone and Android devices. However, certain models do not have the necessary hardware that AARP SafeTrip needs to record your trips. The best way to check your phone’s compatibility is to go to the Apple Store or Google Play (depending on your device) and search for “AARP SafeTrip.” If your phone has the necessary features to make it compatible with AARP SafeTrip, the app appears as downloadable in the Apple Store or Google Play.

Isn’t it dangerous to use the AARP SafeTrip app while driving?

AARP strongly recommends against looking at or interacting with your smartphone while driving. Because AARP SafeTrip works in the background as you drive, all data is recorded without the need to open the app or adjust any settings. Once your drive is over and you’re safely parked, you can review your trip results.

Does AARP SafeTrip require an internet connection?

Internet access is required to process and score any new trips. This internet connection can come from a Wi-Fi network or a cellular network. If the smartphone is not connected to the internet when new trip data is ready to be uploaded or newly scored trips are ready to be downloaded, the upload/download will happen automatically when the internet connection is available.

An active internet connection is not required to record trip data or view the results of prior trips.
