Here's some food for thought for all of our friends playing Pokemon Go! Have you considered the following?
Playing Pokémon Go? Here are 3 kinds of insurance you need...
1. Homeowners' and renters' insurance rest assured that your possessions are covered if thieves break into your home. And, if someone runs off with your mobile phone, you’re in luck if you have cellphone insurance — though it might not reimburse for your lost Pokémon!
2. Motor vehicle-related incidents- Hit while running down a Rotom? Depending on who’s at fault (and local statutes), you may be able to file a claim against the driver’s auto liability insurance policy.
3. Identity theft and cyber crime- Sure, the game’s called Pokémon Go, but it’s really your data that’s in play.
If thieves make off with your information, many insurers will cover identity theft, either as part of a homeowners' or renters' policy or as a stand-alone policy. Identity theft insurance reimburses victims for the cost of restoring their identity and repairing credit reports and related expenses.
Be safe and wary while playing the popular Cell Phone app and make sure you at least have the above 3 line's of insurance in place for your protection while enjoying the game.
