Track Sanctum tokens in Laravel.



Laravel Sanctum Tracker

Track Sanctum tokens in Laravel.

This package allows you to track Sanctum tokens, attaching informations by parsing the User-Agent and saving the IP address.

Using a supported provider or creating your own custom providers, you can collect even more informations with an IP address lookup to get, for example, the geolocation.

It also provides a trait introducing convenient methods: logout, logoutOthers and logoutAll for your user model.


  • This package has been tested with Laravel 8.x and Laravel Sanctum (v2).


Install the package with composer:

composer require alajusticia/laravel-sanctum-tracker

Publish the configuration file (config/sanctum_tracker.php) with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="ALajusticia\SanctumTracker\SanctumTrackerServiceProvider" --tag="config"

Run the migrations to update the personal_access_tokens table:

php artisan migrate

Override default model

This package comes with a custom model (ALajusticia\SanctumTracker\Models\PersonalAccessToken) that extends the default Sanctum model.

Instruct Sanctum to use this custom model via the usePersonalAccessTokenModel method provided by Sanctum. Typically, you should call this method in the boot method of one of your application's service providers:

use ALajusticia\SanctumTracker\Models\PersonalAccessToken;
use Laravel\Sanctum\Sanctum;

 * Bootstrap any application services.
 * @return void
public function boot()

Choose and install a user-agent parser

This package relies on a User-Agent parser to extract the informations.

Currently, it supports two of the most popular parsers:

Before using the Sanctum Tracker, you need to choose a supported parser, install it and indicate in the configuration file which one you want to use.

Add the trait to your user model (optional)

This package provides a ALajusticia\SanctumTracker\Traits\SanctumTracked trait that can be used on your user model to quickly revoke Sanctum tokens.

It introduces convenient methods:

  • logout: to revoke the current token or a specific token by passing its ID in parameter
  • logoutOthers: to revoke all the tokens, except the current one
  • logoutAll: to revoke all the tokens, including the current one
use ALajusticia\SanctumTracker\Traits\SanctumTracked;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;

class User extends Authenticatable
    use SanctumTracked;

    // ...


Issue Sanctum tokens like you would normally do. The PersonalAccessToken model provided by this package will automatically be populated with the extra informations.

IP address lookup

By default, the Sanctum Tracker collects the IP address and the informations given by the User-Agent header.

But you can go even further and collect other informations about the IP address, like the geolocation.

To do so, you first have to enable the IP lookup feature in the configuration file.

This package comes with two officially supported providers for IP address lookup (see the IP Address Lookup section in the config/sanctum_tracker.php configuration file).

Ip2Location Lite DB3

This package officially support the IP address geolocation with the Ip2Location Lite DB3.

Here are the steps to enable and use it:

  • Download the current version of the database and import it in your database as explained in the documentation:

  • Set the name of the ip_lookup.provider option to ip2location-lite in the config/sanctum_tracker.php configuration file

  • Indicate the name of the tables used in your database for IPv4 and IPv6 in the config/sanctum_tracker.php configuration file (by default it uses the same names as the documentation: ip2location_db3 and ip2location_db3_ipv6)

Custom provider

You can add your own providers by creating a class that implements the ALajusticia\SanctumTracker\Interfaces\IpProvider interface and use the ALajusticia\SanctumTracker\Traits\MakesApiCalls trait.

Your custom class have to be registered in the custom_providers array of the configuration file.

Let's see an example of an IP lookup provider with the built-in IpApi provider:

use ALajusticia\SanctumTracker\Interfaces\IpProvider;
use ALajusticia\SanctumTracker\Traits\MakesApiCalls;
use GuzzleHttp\Psr7\Request;

class IpApi implements IpProvider
    use MakesApiCalls;

     * Get the Guzzle request.
     * @return Request
    public function getRequest()
        return new Request('GET', ''.request()->ip().'?fields=25');

     * Get the country name.
     * @return string
    public function getCountry()
        return $this->result->get('country');

     * Get the region name.
     * @return string
    public function getRegion()
        return $this->result->get('regionName');

     * Get the city name.
     * @return string
    public function getCity()
        return $this->result->get('city');

As you can see, the class has a getRequest method that must return a GuzzleHttp\Psr7\Request instance.

Guzzle utilizes PSR-7 as the HTTP message interface. Check its documentation:

The IpProvider interface comes with required methods related to the geolocation. All keys of the API response are accessible in your provider via $this->result, which is a Laravel collection.

If you want to collect other informations, you can add a getCustomData method in your custom provider. This custom data will be saved in the logins table in the ip_data JSON column. Let's see an example of additional data:

public function getCustomData()
    return [
        'country_code' => $this->result->get('countryCode'),
        'latitude' => $this->result->get('lat'),
        'longitude' => $this->result->get('lon'),
        'timezone' => $this->result->get('timezone'),
        'isp_name' => $this->result->get('isp'),

Handle API errors

In case of an exception throwed during the API call of your IP address lookup provider, the FailedApiCall event is fired by this package.

This event has an exception attribute containing the GuzzleHttp\Exception\TransferException (see Guzzle documentation).

You can listen to this event to add your own logic.



On a new login, you can listen to the ALajusticia\SanctumTracker\Events\PersonalAccessTokenCreated event. It has a personalAccessToken property containing the newly created ALajusticia\SanctumTracker\Models\PersonalAccessToken and a context property that receives a ALajusticia\SanctumTracker\RequestContext object containing all the informations collected on the request.

Available properties:

$this->context->userAgent; // The full, unparsed, User-Agent header
$this->context->ip; // The IP address

Available methods:

$this->context->parser(); // Returns the parser used to parse the User-Agent header
$this->context->ip(); // Returns the IP address lookup provider

Available methods in the parser:

$this->context->parser()->getDevice(); // The name of the device (MacBook...)
$this->context->parser()->getDeviceType(); // The type of the device (desktop, mobile, tablet, phone...)
$this->context->parser()->getPlatform(); // The name of the platform (macOS...)
$this->context->parser()->getBrowser(); // The name of the browser (Chrome...)

Available methods in the IP address lookup provider:

$this->context->ip()->getCountry(); // The name of the country
$this->context->ip()->getRegion(); // The name of the region
$this->context->ip()->getCity(); // The name of the city
$this->context->ip()->getResult(); // The entire result of the API call as a Laravel collection

// And all your custom methods in the case of a custom provider
