I just discovered that the Username edit field in the Account Settings, which requires you to input your current password, disallows the user of the Paste command in the password field. This is an extremely poor "solution" for preventing people from re-using passwords, because it also destroys the ability for users to use password managers. I don't even know my Tesla account password: I generated a random 20-character alphanumeric string when I created the account, and I paste it from the manager into a password field. With paste disabled, the only way to change my username was manually typing a 20-character jumble of upper and lowercase letters and numbers. This was not fun.
Oddly, the main login screen at https://auth.tesla.com/login doesn't have this problem. It allows me to paste my password just fine.
