This Week in Tesla: Two Factor Authentication Coming Soon, Select Teslas Will Soon be Able to Play Elevator Music While Driving

Two Factor Authentication Finally Coming to Tesla -

It has long been a fear of Tesla owners that someone could simply drive off in their car, with only their email and password to their Tesla account. This would be possible via the Tesla app, where with only your email and password, one can log in to the app to unlock your car and drive off. One popular solution that many companies have for this type of vulnerability is called two factor authentication, or 2FA. 2FA makes it so that when someone logs into the Tesla app, they have to approve the login via an email or text message sent to them. This will prevent someone from logging into a Tesla account who is not the actual owner of the car and who doesn’t have permission to login. In a recent tweet, Tesla CEO stated that 2FA is coming soon and that the feature is being rolled out “embarrassingly late.” Luckily, there have not been many instances where a car is stolen using this vulnerability, and two factor authentication will prevent any future vulnerabilities related to logging into the Tesla app.


Some Teslas Will Soon be Able to Play Elevator Music Through External Speakers -

Many Tesla cars have external speakers, intended to make a noise when travelling at low speeds to ensure that pedestrians know that the car is there since electric cars do not make as much noise as internal combustion engine cars. Although the speaker is intended to play a simple sound to alert pedestrians to the cars presence, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk would like to add to the capabilities. He recently expressed via Twitter that he intends to enable the cars to play “Snake Jazz or Polynesian elevator music... wherever you go.” “Snake Jazz” is a reference to the popular TV show Rick and Morty, where a planet of snakes develop their own version of jazz.
