Cannot Sign in to Youtube

I just got my 2021 long range model 3 today. I’m trying to sign into the YouTube app in my Tesla, but it will not let me. I get a “this browser or app may not be secure.” Can someone help?

  • Search for youtube in the forum, you'll find what you're looking for.
  • search for the Plex.tv login fix and you’ll find what you’re looking for.
  • I’ve tried all those workarounds and none has worked for me. Plex will not let me sign in with my google account, just freezes. Of course google and YouTube just give the browser security error. One thing I have not tried yet is reboot then trying Plex sign in.

    Would be nice if we got real chrome browser, or at least the missing security pieces, at some point.
  • Plex.tv no longer works but it seems Runescape is still a functional workaround based on this video and its comments:

  • I run YouTube without logging in. Not having the Google password information stored in the car seems like the prudent thing to do because someday you'll sell the car and I'm not certain how well the MCU's memory can be flushed.
  • It’s YouTube TV I’m after in the car (not while driving!) and that requires me to log on to my account.

    I’d also like to be able to view Amazon Prime Video but alas, Prime Video gives the same security error as Google when I try to log on.

    I guess it’s just Netflix and Hulu for now.

    Yes the RuneScape site worked for me. The plex and drop box were a no go.

    Watch the video past the Dropbox trick and he goes through the RuneScape trick.
  • Just baffled at the need to use workarounds for this. Just need the security pieces of the browser added.

    If Netflix and Hulu can use this browser and consider it secure, I don’t see why Google and Amazon can’t do the same.

    Could it be that Tesla has a deal with Netflix and Hulu and wants to block owners from using anything else?

    I would hope a Factory Reset would take care of that, but maybe someone who had to do a Factory Reset for some reason could tell us if the browser data was erased also.
