About Us
Hippo was founded on the belief that homeowners deserve better insurance.
Hippo was founded on the belief that homeowners deserve better insurance.
Insurance should protect your home and the things you treasure, so policies provided by Hippo offer modernized coverage for the way homes are used today on things like electronics and home office equipment.
It should also be easy and accessible, so we pushed home insurance into the digital age and made it possible to buy a policy online in less than five minutes.
We’re here when things go wrong. We’re also here to help things go right.
Hippo doesn’t just provide you an insurance policy, we help you care for your home so you can avoid making a claim in the first place.
We’re the only company that:

Offers access to home-care services and ongoing home maintenance through Hippo Home Care
