Mobile Remote Access Pin (Implemented)

Now Implemented!


Today if your car get stolen it’s easy to see where it is by using the Tesla app (and give the police a little help). But if the car thief just turn the Mobile Remote Access off it’s no longer possible.

As a extra extra security layer it would be great to have an option that to able to turn the Mobile Remote Access off a PIN code on the display was required.


Moderator: Relative to the number of cars produced, Tesla’s cars are the least stolen production car in the USA. See AOL (May-2014) article for details.


Implemented in V9, 2018.44.  Even more secure as it requires your login credentials.

This is perhaps more interesting to have if the car is on service; I'd say it's more likely that a serviceman diong a test run plays with the car rather than a thief. I would still like this feature, though!
Add a password
I see no point in adding another step. I have a car currently that has a start button which I have to push after the car knows I'm unlocking it. Worse yet its a car that requires me to push the button twice just to turn it off. Dumb!
You wouldn't have to enter the PIN often, only when you want to turn it off. Also a PIN/password should be needed to turn off the valet mode.
