Tesla cars are currently among the most complete in technology, in many areas. Its software allows you to control many factors and many areas, from the entertainment system to car mechanics.
With an app for access, control and even access control, this management is even simpler. The problem exists when this fails, as it has now, after Tesla users are left unable to get into their cars.
There is a Tesla app that allows you to control your cars. Here, drivers can access a lot of options that allow them to manage the details of these vehicles. It is so useful that it allows you to dispense with keys and control all access.
This can be an interesting dependency for users, as it focuses all management and access there. The problem is even when this app crashes, like it did a while ago. Of course, complaints soon surfaced on social media.

Sorry, we will take measures to ensure this does not happen again.

This is the situation that illustrates the dependence of Tesla cars on elements that, even indoors, are prone to failure. Shutting down the simple app can leave users out of their cars with issues at hand. This can be solved simply by ... having the key.
