   * **Public trackable code:**\\ The non-secret trackable code (e.g. TBxxxx, GKxxxx, GLxxxx).

-  * **Secret tracking code:**\\ A non-public tracking code typically only printed on the trackable item. This code is needed to post a log for a trackable item, to ensure that you have physically seen/moved this trackable.\\ \\ The secret tracking code will be required while composing your trackable log. For geocaching.com trackables you can also use the secret code in the [[.mainmenu:​search|search function]]. This will not work for other trackable brands ​then Travel Bugs as c:geo can not distinguish the trackable brand by its secret code and therefore assumes geocaching.com as default.\\ \\ The [[.mainmenu:​quicksearch|quick search bar]] can also be used to search a trackable by its secret code unless it coincidentally starts with an identifier reserved for geocaches (e.g. GCxxxx, OCxxxx, OUxxxx), in which case c:geo cannot distinguish if you search for a secret code of a trackable or a geocache. In such cases you have to use the [[.mainmenu:​search|search function]] instead. \\ \\ The search will show you the [[[[trackabledetails|trackable details]] of the trackable, from where you can start logging the trackable.+  * **Secret tracking code:**\\ A non-public tracking code typically only printed on the trackable item.
