The phone insurance that protects your beloved smartphone
Insure your smartphone against theft and breakage from €4.99/month.
But why insure your smartphone?
Although smartphone insurance is not mandatory, it is highly recommended to protect mobile phones, which are becoming increasingly expensive. It allows you to have your mobile phone repaired or replaced, free of charge.
Mobile phones are becoming increasingly fragile, and they really can't take a fall. With mobile phone insurance, you won't have to worry about repairs.
Don't worry about phone theft
In France, a smartphone is stolen every 4 minutes! At a café, in the metro, or simply on the street, pickpockets are active and on the lookout. Smartphone insurance allows you to receive a new phone in the blink of an eye.
Avoiding unexpected expenses
When you know that repairing a smartphone screen costs between €100 and €400, depending on the model, it is wise to cover your bases. With Lovys phone insurance the repairs are covered. Your banker will thank you.
The guarantees of our mobile phone insurance
About 138,264 smartphone screens are broken every day! And 65% of people will never get it fixed! But a broken screen lets moisture in and therefore increases the risk that your precious will burn out.
No less than 20% of the claims reported to Lovys are for theft. Our phone theft insurance allows you to receive another smartphone quickly. And this is true regardless of the type of theft (snatch and grab, break-in, etc.).
Total or partial breakage
A selfie stick to which your smartphone is not properly attached, a fall from your balcony, or a phone that crashes to the ground at a party... So many things can happen in the life of a smartphone, which is why you are insured in all cases.
Oxidation & moisture
You don't need to be told that, like cats, phones don't like water. Exposure to too much moisture, for example from steam in your bathroom, can cause your phone to malfunction.
A faulty charger or plug can be your phone's undoing. This guarantee protects you in the event of a short-circuit that makes your mobile phone unusable.
Very few mobile phones are waterproof. And so, a lot of them suffer from water-related accidents.

- iPhone insurance
Insuring your iPhone is a wise decision because, as well as being ultra fragile, they are also the number one target for smartphone theft, especially the new models. At Lovys, insuring your iPhone 13 costs €13.99/month, and protects it from breakage, theft, and water damage.
- Insuring your Samsung
Samsung smartphones are the best selling in the world, accounting for 23% of global sales! Just as fragile as their number one competitor's models, insuring your Samsung costs the same as insuring your iPhone. In fact, the price to insure the Samsung Galaxy S21+ is also €13.99/month.
- Insurance for Nokia phones
Known for being indestructible, the 3310 has unfortunately not passed on this trait to its descendants. That's why insuring your Nokia can help you avoid disappointment. Nokia Smartphone Insurance reimburses you in case of breakage or theft. For a Nokia 9 Pureview the price is €5.99/month. Always without obligation.
- Insuring your Huawei phone
With sales falling by more than 80% by 2021, Huawei is going through a difficult period. All the same, it is still very present in France and the manufacturer sold 1.3 million smartphones in France in 2020. Insuring your Huawei P40 Pro+ with Lovys will cost you €10.99/month.
How can I get a quote for mobile phone insurance?
Please note that our telephone insurance needs to be activated! To do this, download the Lovys app and follow the steps indicated. If you have any questions, our team is available on the chat!
How to activate your Lovys smartphone insurance?
This is a crucial step and without this, we cannot protect your phone. Why? This is because it lets us see the condition of your smartphone at the time of your subscription. In fact, telephone insurance fraud is widespread! You'd be surprised how many people try to get reimbursed for the breakage of a phone that is totally different from the one they insured.
There are three parts to activating your insurance:
- A request for your IMEI number (the identifier for your phone)
- Checking your screen - you'll need to swipe your finger to see a photo
- An analysis of the general condition of your smartphone - we will ask you to film both sides of it (tip: use a mirror)
Once this step has been completed, we will activate your insurance in just a few minutes!
When does the cover start and end?
What should I do if my phone breaks?
- Partial breakage
If dropped, the screen usually cracks. This is normal, as it is the most fragile part of your device. But sometimes the buttons are also damaged. In any case, thanks to our breakage insurance for your phone, the repair costs will be covered if the damage prevents you from using your device.
- Total breakage
A total breakage occurs when your phone becomes unusable as a result of an accident. And above all, irreparable, even by the best of technicians. In this case, once your claim has been declared from your customer area and approved by our teams, we will send you a new smartphone (the same or an equivalent).
How to make a claim (theft, breakage, water damage, etc.)?
- If the phone is stolen
We will then need proof that you have filed a complaint with the gendarmerie or police station and proof that your SIM card has been blocked. You can send us these documents directly from your customer area. Please note that you only have three days to report the theft of your phone.
- If it is a total or partial breakage
A video of your phone will then be required to validate your claim. Again, you can send it to us via your customer area. If you are unable to do this, we will ask you to send your smartphone to our repair partner so that they can examine and repair it if possible. The shipping is of course at our expense and not yours.
- If it is a question of oxidation, short-circuit or water damage
You have five days to report your claim from your customer area so that we can repair or replace your device. When you make your declaration, we will ask you to send us a video of your smartphone, which helps us to assess the damage.
How does a refund or replacement phone work?
If you don't want to go to a technician, no problem! You can send your phone to our repair centre and we will take care of everything. Lovys, of course, pays for the shipping.
In cases when your mobile phone unfortunately cannot be repaired, for example in case of smartphone theft, we will send you a replacement phone. This new smartphone will be refurbished to the same high standard as the old one. Why refurbished? Because it's better for the planet, quite simply!
You will only be charged the deductible for the repair or replacement of your phone and you will not have to pay anything in advance!
Is there a waiting period?
Is my smartphone insured abroad?
Can I take out smartphone insurance for my child? For someone else?
- Subscribing for your child
As the legal guardian of your child, you have every right to take out telephone insurance for him or her. You can do this until they come of age. To subscribe in your child's place, you just need to fill in your own details when you sign the contract. Be sure to indicate the make and model of your child's phone, not yours. Then, download the Lovys app on his/her phone and complete the activation.
- Subscribing for someone else
Your parents, your spouse, or a friend... whoever it is, you can't subscribe for them. To take out our online phone insurance, you must be the owner and user of the phone.
What is the maximum guarantee?
I have several IMEI numbers, which one should I choose?
To activate your phone insurance, you will need this as it is essential in order to block your device in case of loss or theft. Where can I find the IMEI number? Simply dial *#06# and the IMEI number will appear on your screen. It can also be found on the purchase invoice of your smartphone.
If you have more than one phone, you have more than one IMEI number. The one you need to tell us is the one that corresponds to the mobile you want to insure, quite simply.
