First Connect to offer cyber protection from BLINK by Chubb

Hippo’s subsidiary First Connect Insurance Services and Blink by Chubb announced a collaboration to make personal cyber insurance protection available to independent agents that participate in First Connect’s insurtech marketplace platform.

First Connect, a digital platform designed to provide independent agents with access to “some of the nation’s top insurtech carriers,” will offer a cyber protection insurance product underwritten by Blink by Chubb. The product provides standalone coverage that insures customers against cyber risks such as cyberbullying, online extortion and identity theft, and covers electronic data restoration and replacement costs.

“With multiple devices and online accounts, cyber protection is a necessity in today’s always-connected world. By offering Blink’s Cyber Protection, small and medium-sized agencies gain access to yet another national carrier and a growing list of fully digital products available on First Connect that can be easily combined with other types of coverage.” – First Connect president Aviad Pinkovezky.

“Blink is delighted to offer First Connect agents simple, jargon-free personal cyber insurance to help protect their customers’ digital lives. First Connect’s approach to providing fast quotes and near-instant binds made it a natural platform to offer Cyber Protection to independent agencies.” – Laura Bennett, SVP of eConsumer for Chubb in North America.
