Tesla has been gaining popularity in recent years, thanks to its innovative technology and cars that are both stylish and efficient. But recently, there was an incident involving one of the company’s cars that showed a potential flaw in the security of its mobile app.
Vancouver resident Rajesh Randev was able to gain access to and drive someone else’s Tesla thanks to the mobile app. Randev had mistakenly got into the wrong Tesla, as it was parked right next to his and was the same make and color as his own. However, he was still able to gain access to it and start it using the app.
The other Tesla driver noticed the mix-up and sent Randev a text message. He then got in touch with the other person and drove the wrong Tesla to pick his kids up from school. After that, they met up and the incident was resolved.
Randev was unable to figure out how the Tesla app let him into another person’s Car. He has since reached out to Tesla with video evidence of the incident, but he is yet to hear back from the automaker.
This incident is a reminder of the importance of security in the digital age. While it is possible to access other people’s cars with the Tesla app, it is important for the company to ensure that the app is secure and that it cannot be exploited by hackers. It is also important for Tesla owners to take the necessary precautions to ensure the security of their cars.
