A recent incident in Vancouver, Canada has raised concerns about the security of Tesla vehicles and the potential for unauthorized access through the company's mobile app. According to reports, a man was able to enter and drive away with a Tesla Model 3 that was not his own, simply by using the Tesla app on his smartphone.
The individual, identified as Rajesh Randev, claims that he mistook the other vehicle for his own, as they were both the same color and parked side by side. He unlocked the car with his app and drove off, only realizing the mistake later.
This incident has sparked questions about the ease with which individuals could potentially use the Tesla app to gain access to and control other people's vehicles. While the app is designed to provide a convenient way for Tesla owners to remotely unlock, start, and monitor their cars, it may also present a potential security risk.
