Tesla App unlocks someone else’s car & drive away with it
Only after the actual owner of the Model 3 called Randev, did he figure out his mistake.
According to a media report, Canda-based Tesla owner Rajesh Randev, unlocked and drove away in a white Model 3 only to realise later that it was someone else’s car.
Parked on a Vancouver street with two almost identical Tesla Model 3s, Randev used the Tesla App to unlock what he believed was his car and drove off to pick up his kids from school. 15 minutes into the drive, Randev started noticing unfamiliarities inside, like his missing phone charger and a cracked windscreen.
Only after the actual owner of the Model 3 called Randev, did he figure out his mistake. What’s surprising is that the other person was also able to unlock Randev’s Model 3 using his Tesla App and find Randev’s phone number via a document inside.
Reports state that Randev was able to pick up his kids and drive back to the Vancouver street where the cars were parked – a full 90-minute drive, without a hitch.
