State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. has filed a patent for a computer program that provides access to auto insurance information. The program includes two software widgets that can be displayed on a mobile electronic device. The first widget displays contact information for an insurance agent when selected by the user. The second widget displays an image of the user's auto insurance card and compares the expiration date with the current date. If the expiration date has passed, the widget generates an indicia to indicate that the virtual auto insurance card needs to be updated.

The computer program, stored on a non-transitory computer-readable medium, is configured to store auto insurance information on a mobile electronic device. It periodically compares the expiration date of the auto insurance card with the current date and generates an indicia if the expiration date has passed. The indicia is displayed on the first screen of the mobile device, overlaid on a software widget that represents an insurance card. The program also allows the user to receive a notification if the expiration date has passed and the user is not logged into the insurance company's server. The user can then select an object on the second screen to log into their account and provide login information to refresh the expiration date stored on the device.

The mobile electronic device itself includes a processing element, a display with an input device, and a non-transitory computer-readable memory. The memory stores the computer program that allows the device to store auto insurance information, compare expiration dates, generate indicia, display the indicia on the first screen, receive notifications, and log into the insurance company's server.
