Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get my device code?
To recover your device code, you will need to log in at the Login area. To do this, go to the top of the Active911 website and click on the 'Web Portla Login' link at the top of the page. Your username will be your email address; if you need your password reset, just leave the password field blank, and a new one will be emailed to you. This password link is a one-time-use link, so if you need a new one sent, just leave the password field blank again.
How can I be added to more than one account?
In order to set up your device on multiple accounts, you will need to get the device code from your primary account/department and supply it to an admin on your secondary account/department to register as a multiple use device on their account. If the admin does not know how to do this, please have them contact us. You can also find your own device code on our website by following the instructions above.
What is the cost for Active911?
The only cost for the Active911 system is based off the number of devices. The standard rate is $14.00 per device per year. There are bulk discounts for agency subscriptions. A full breakdown of the rates is available on the Products and Pricing page.
How do I pay for an Individual/Personal Subscription?
In order to purchase a personal subscription, please Login. Enter your email and password. If you do not have or know your password, leave the password field blank and select Go. This will send you a new password link to your email. Once logged in, you should see your device listed with a blue Fix Now for $14.00 button. If you see your device, but not the button, refresh the page.
What is a Primary Account Contact?
A Primary Account Contact is the primary administrator on an account. Since we allow an unlimited number of admins to be added to an account, we ask for one person to be identified to be notified of Agency Renewals and to send receipts to for check payments.
What is the Difference between Foreground GPS and Background GPS?
Foreground GPS is the default setting that enables your GPS location to be shared with other members when you are in the Active911 app. Background GPS enables others to see your location even when the app is not open on your phone. For more information on this, please visit our blog post: https://blog.active911.com/2018/03/training-thursday-what-is-the-difference-between-background-gps-and-foreground-gps/
How do I get a password reset?
To generate a new password, please Login on the Active911 Website. Enter your email as the user name and leave the password field blank. Select Login and a password reset email will be sent to the email address you provided.

How can I remove/delete Map Data from my account?
How can I share map data?
In order to share map data, you will need to be a user on both accounts with at least the "Edit Locations" permission. Once you are both accounts, you will go to the Map Data tab within the account you want to share the data from and there should be a "Share Map Data" button. You will select this and choose which departments you want to share with. If this is not showing, please make sure you have been added under both accounts with the same email address.
Why am I getting General Alerts?
If you see alerts coming through as General Alerts, this is a result of our system not being able to recognize the format of the information being sent to the alert email address for your account. However, we can fix this! Please contact us at your earliest convenience and let us know you are getting alerts like this so we can make adjustments accordingly.
