    Liability Insurance

    by uteman1011 ·

    My son and a few friends are getting ready to launch a mobile app. We’re wondering if there is a “go-to” insurance company for companies that develop mobile apps?

      What type of liability ?

      I can’t imagine why you might need liability insurance for a mobile application. What type of application is it ? My impression of mobile applications is “use at your own risk”. If you are working with a development or hosting company, they should be able to clarify and/or suggest a solution.

        Think of a dating app with a couple twists. They’re taking it in more of a networking direction. They’ve got some very large VC’s interested and the feedback they’ve gotten from the industry are extremely positive. I’m just trying to help him cover all bases and insurance seems like a good protection in the case a user does something stupid/crazy. It seems there’s been quite a few lawsuits in the dating site/app world over the years.

      Get a lawyer. Really!

      I’ve yet to encounter such a need and I worked on as well as created apps both mobile and desktop for decades.

      The only time we considered insurance was something highly specific and for that the company we developed the app for bore all the responsibility, not us. And yes, lawyers were involved.
