What Security Procedures Do We Use to Guard Against the Loss, Misuse, Alteration, or Theft of Information While That Information Is Being Submitted to Allstate Over the Internet?
To help ensure the security of your personal and financial information that you submit to this site, (other than via an e-mail message), we use security software to encrypt the information before and during its transmission through the Internet.

If your browser is not compatible, you will receive a message indicating your transaction can be completed but at a lower level of security.
