Chubb To Offer UK ‘Troll Insurance’ Policy

Insurance group Chubb will start offering the UK’s first cyber-bullying policy – ‘troll insurance’ – through which it will accept claims of up to £50,000 to cover counselling and relocation costs, as well as time spent out of work. Chubb will provide its personal insurance policy customers the option to claim expenses ensued from online abuse. Cyberbullying is defined by the insurer as ‘three or more acts by the same person or group to harass, threaten or intimidate a customer.’ While the new insurance option is targeted towards parents concerned about their children’s online activities, adults who are targeted by cyber abuse will also be able to make a claim.
