Webapp Overview

The new Tractive Webapp

Not long ago we updated our website and adjusted it to fit our smartphone apps. The new user interface is now very similar on every platform and is providing an easier and more convenient navigation than the old website.

Despite the fact that the new Tractive webapp is pretty self-explanatory, here’s a small guide in case you don’t find all the features that are available.

Tractive Webapp - Login

Follow the link right here, to access the Tractive webapp.

In order to login please use your email address and the password of your Tractive account (the same password you are using to login on your smartphone)
The webapp will be loaded right after you hit “Sign In” and all features will be accessible.

In the sidebar on the left you can find the all the same elements, information and options as you have in the smartphone app. But anyway, here’s a quick explanation:Tractive Webapp - Overview

  • Your Profile picture and name
  • Activate a new Tractive GPS tracker
  • A list of all your activated trackers
  • Profile settings
  • Notification settings
  • Logout
  • Link to our Help-Center
  • Link for product information
  • Change the language of the webapp

How to Activate Your Tracker

Tractive Webapp - Tracker activation

If you’ve just received or bought a new Tractive GPS tracker you just need to click the button to activate the new device. The webapp will guide you through all the necessary steps.
In order to activate the tracker you’ll need the 8-digit Tracker ID which is located on the back of the device.

Your Trackers and the New Sharing Feature

Tractive Webapp - Tracker Sharing

The sidebar contains a list of all your trackers with their pictures and names, followed by a little pictogram which shows the current battery state.

Our newest feature: You can share your tracker with friends or family. And the best thing is, it only takes a few clicks. Once they’ve accepted your sharing invitation the tracker will be visible in their own account. With the new sharing feature in our webapp, you don’t need to give away your login credentials to another person.

Account Settings

Tractive Webapp - Account settings

Here you can find all settings for your account.
On the upper end of your screen you can find all information about your active subscriptions.
Additionally, you can edit your name, email address and your password. For the changes to take effect, please don’t forget to press the “Save” button.

For the lazy ones we’ve added the possibility to log into your smartphone app via QR code. Just open your app and select the QR code-option, scan the QR code on the settings page and you’re good to go.

Your Active Subscriptions

Tractive Webapp - Active subscriptions

For detailed information about your subscriptions you can click on “My service plans” and all your subscriptions will be shown. Here you can also change your payment credentials or your payment interval.

Notification Settings

Tractive Webapp - Notification pane

If you want to add an extra email address for the notifications, please add it here.
Furthermore, you can change the language of the notifications. The notifications are sent out when:

  • entering the Safe Zone
  • leaving the Safe Zone
  • the batteries get low

The Map

The map and its information labels are designed exactly like on your smartphone app. That means, you can find the following information on the upper left corner on your screen:

Tractive Webapp - Details of the tracker

  • Name of your pet
  • Speed of your pet if it’s moving
  • Current sea level of the trackers location

Tractive Webapp - Tracker commands

On the upper right corner you can find all the commands you can send to your tracker (Live, Light). Furthermore, you can select the option to view the location history and to change the Safe Zone of your tracker.

Location History

Tractive Webapp - Location history

If you click the button to view the location history, the data of the last 24 hours will be visible. If you need detailed information about a specific timeframe (even if it’s been a few weeks ago) you can select your desired timeframe at the bottom of the screen.

Please select the start and the end date first. After that, you can fine-tune the displayed data with the blue slider.


We hope you’ll like the new Tractive webapp as much as we do. If you have any questions or if you want to give us feedback please contact us via our Support Form.

  1. I can’t see notification on my Iphone and Ipad for tractive GPS tracker; on android smartphone it works well. I can’t find the app in the notification center of iphone and Ipad!
    How can I turn the notification on over IOS?

    1. Hi Gianluca,

      I’m sorry that you don’t receive notifications on your iPhone/iPad.
      The app should definitely show up in the notification center. Our tech support team will get in touch, please check your inbox.


        1. Hi Grace,

          Can you please try to enable the Safe Zone for a short moment to register your App for Push Notifications.
          One of my colleagues is already in contact with you.
          Please let her know if you’re experiencing any further troubles.

          All the best,

  2. Unable to Login on App

    Hi, I’ve registered my Tractive and can login on my computer but not on my the App. It gives me a message regarding storage. Please advise.

    1. Hi Jane,

      that seems like a message from your phone itself and not our app.
      Can you check if you’ve enough free space on your smartphone?

      If you need further assistance please drop us an email at support@tractive.com.

      Kind regards

  3. Hi, Once I click on the LIVE button it has a timer of around 800 seconds until it automatically disconnects. Is there a way I can keep this on permanently whilst we are sleeping overnight? Many thanks

    1. Hi Andy,

      The Live Mode is automatically turned off after 15 minutes of activity. This fall-back feature was built in to save battery life in case you should forget to disable the Live Mode yourself.
      Unfortunately, there’s currently no option to prolong this duration.

      Nevertheless, I saved your request and we’ll take it into consideration for future updates.

      All the best,

  4. Hi, i just bought the tractive app. and i saw that the casing is waterproof. so does this mean that if my dog jumps into the water the device should be fine? also, when i open the app on my iphone it gives variable updates about the where abouts. sometimes its 1 minute, the other time its 50 minutes. is it also possible to get an update about whereabouts every 10 minutes or so?

    with kind regards, Joost

    1. Hi Joost,

      Of course, the Tractive GPS Tracker is completely waterproof. Jumping into a lake or the sea does not harm the tracker as long as its enclosure has not been damaged in advance 😉
      The variable updates you’re experiencing are completely normal. An internal accelerometer unit is measuring the activity level. Once movement is detected the Tractive GPS Tracker will update its position more often than in a state of non-movement. For example if your dog/cat is sleeping at night the location updates will occur less frequent. This behavior has some benefits on the overall battery life.

      If you need further assistance you can always contact us via http://tractive.com/contact
      One of our Support Agents will be happy to assist you in any case.


  5. When I registered my first tracker I missed putting a picture of my dog on his tracker. I don’t see how to go back and add a picture.

    Also, my map is just a simple map with no buildings or anything. How do I change the map used?

    1. Hi Doug,

      Adding a picture of your dog is currently only possible in our Tractive App that you can use on your smartphone.
      In case you are using the Webapp only, you can send me the picture and the name of your dog and I’ll add it to your account 😉

      To change the map mode you can click onto the gear wheel on the lower right corner of the screen. There’ll be an option to change the map to Hybrid then.

      If you need further assistance or to send us the photo, please contact us via our Support Form at:

      All the Best,
