Manage Notifications

Missing Notifications?

Of course this should not happen at all! It's one of the most important features of the Tractive GPS app. Our customer service agents get this question a lot - Why didn't I get any notification? Don't worry, we have a few troubleshooting tips that may help you out.


1) Enable Push Notifications on your Smartphone

(iOS only)
Click on settings and scroll down until you see the Tractive GPS app. There you can manage which kind of notifications we are allowed to show you.



2) Enable Notifications in your Tractive GPS Account

Please visit the website and check your account settings to manage virtual fence notifications.



3) Confirm that the Virtual Fence is active

  • Please open the drawer on the left side on your phone and click on the little "i" next to your desired pet. In the next list view you'll find the option to edit the Safe Zone in the appropriate category.


  • On the website, please click on SAFE ZONE icon on the top right corner of the screen. After that the Safe Zone will appear and you can adjust its size and position.

    To confirm your changes please hit the Safe Zone button again.


4) Other reasons why you may not receive notifications:

  • Your virtual fence is active in the wrong location
  • You have no internet on your smartphone/tablet
  • You misspelled the e-mail address on the website?
    (only for e-mail notifications of course)
  • If none of these tips could help you, please contact the customer service team.
