    I've been taking an interest in saving up for a Tesla myself but I recently came across
    this video concerning some security and privacy risks with Tesla cars, namely its Over-The-Air features.
    https://invidio.us/watch?v=Qjkt3X2WLrw

    After listening to it twice, I tried to look up to see if anyone managed to opt out of the OTA features.
    Nobody said they did it in the video's comment section, so I thought I might ask around on forums like this.

    Thanks.

    That article is pure idiocy. The benefits vastly outweigh the risks.

    I think you might be in the wrong group.

    #1 feature of Tesla is OTA updates. Opting out of OTA updates, if possible, should be criminal as it puts people at risk by preventing security updates.

    Can you elaborate more on how my car not getting updates puts other people at risk?
