Will Allstate notify my lender if I switch my insurance from full coverage to liability?

Is it possible to switch to liability only without my lender knowing? I bought a car not knowing that I'd need to maintain full coverage on it. Right now I can afford it, but I'm scraping by. I thought I might be able to switch it to liability insurance without the lender knowing.

“Don’t do it. While Allstate may or may not contact your lender, it’s really a moot point.
If Allstate does tell your lender, your lender will immediately add force-placed insurance because you’re in breach of contract. This insurance is often three to five times more expensive than insurance you’d buy on your own.
Furthermore, the lender can also cancel your loan and take possession of the vehicle because you breached your contract.
Instead of being deceitful, start shopping for car insurance on Jerry. With side-by-side comparisons of dozens of insurers, you can get the best full coverage rate for your vehicle.”
