Do I need to inform Progressive that I'm now a Lyft driver?

What happens if I don't tell my insurance company I am a rideshare driver? Lyft asked for me to provide my insurance, but I haven't contacted Progressive directly.

“Not telling Progressive about your new status as a rideshare driver could have serious consequences, including your provider refusing to pay for claims in the event of an accident while using the rideshare app.
While rideshare companies offer their own insurance, it generally lapses in coverage if you’re using the app but not actively providing a ride.
To ensure full coverage, tell your insurance provider and consider purchasing rideshare insurance or some type of commercial insurance.”
