    Hi everyone, I just came across this video, wanted to know if anyone can confirm any truth to the claim or just another BS video?

    The hack is possible however, you need to accept a WiFI connection that has been setup specifically to attain your my tesla app username and password. If you never join a fake WiFi connection their is no way to gain your username and password. Best advice is to always join a reliable and valid WiFi hotspot.

    The attack they demonstrated was to trick the user into installing a malicious app onto their phone. The wifi connection was just the means of doing that. If you install random apps from unknown sources, you could easily be installing a key logger or similar, which could compromise your car, bank account, stock market account and a whole bunch more.
