Hello everyone, I recently purchased model 3 and going through a learning curve. As a developer one of my eye catching feature is the Tesla API. Although Tesla does not support this,It is amazing to download ton of data and then later look at them.
There are several services such as teslafi.com or teslalog.com are doing a great job at this. Also I saw several "free" Apps and Alexa skills to control vehicle functions.
All these services needs Tesla App login to fetch the data. There are no controls on the Tesla side to limit the type of data. The data received through APIs are very exhaustive and make it nightmare on privacy.
With API data anyone can tell where I live, work, go shopping, eat out, and go on vacation. Anyone who has access to this data can learn great deal about me.
All these services secure and protect customer's data. But what if there is a data breach or some big company buy them out? What happens to the data then?
I'm torn between one side wanting the data and other side fearing of privacy. Will Tesla make this official at some point in the future?
Want to know how others feel about this?
