A group of Yidden frums are trying to get Tesla to change the internet settings in their cars to allow for proper filtering and internet restrictions. They ask for help from the public.

“There is a known issue with Teslas that every model is able to connect to Wi-Fi, which grants unlimited access to anything on the internet,” organizers told

While those who pay an extra fee for what is referred to as premium connectivity can get Wi-Fi access at any time, even those who do not purchase this service can connect to Wi-Fi from any hotspot, which gives them access to Unlimited internet which is unfilterable.

Some more upscale models come with a screen in both the front and rear of the car. The screen in the rear, intended for child passengers, can be locked by parents, but it is currently not possible to disable the screen in the front.

A resident of Lakewood, Yisroel D. Bendertook action by contacting Tesla several weeks ago regarding this issue and has been working with them to find a workable solution that allows frum Yidden to drive Tesla without addressing this issue.

When he first called Tesla, Yisroel was told a solution might be possible if enough people call them and express interest.

Yisroel told that it is not at all farfetched to think they can easily find a solution, as they have done so for numerous other requests when demand is high. Tesla representatives openly told him over the phone that if enough people call with this request, it is very likely that the pressure will result in something being worked out.

“Representatives said that, in the past, Tesla changed things like car design and software after people called,” he said. “Also, they recently changed the font to a larger size to accommodate older drivers who were having difficulty reading it after numerous calls with this request.”

Tesla already has a feature known as pin to drive. When this feature is activated, the car cannot be driven until a pin is entered. It wouldn’t be too difficult to install a similar feature for using the internet, which would make it impossible to use the internet unless a pin is entered. The pin may have been created by someone else and left unknown to the driver, which would, in effect, disable the internet and remove the problem altogether.

Yisroel asks Tesla owners to call them at 1-877-798-3752. After dialing this number, press option 5, then dial extension 10007. The caller will then need to identify himself as the Tesla owner and provide his name, odometer reading by email and Tesla nickname (if applicable ). It may therefore require that the pin lock feature be added to the web browser.

The call will only last a couple of minutes and will hopefully bring results. Tesla representatives reached over the phone were extremely positive about this idea and said this is a good way to do it.

The public awareness campaign kicked off just a few weeks ago, and Tesla representatives are telling callers that they’ve already received a lot of calls. Yisroel has continued to be in contact with Tesla and has been told that they are impressed with the number of calls and the importance of this issue to the Jewish community. They say the more calls they get, the better chance they have of fulfilling the request.

If anyone has any other questions, please call Yisroel D. Bender at 908-783-4220. Additionally, anyone who calls Tesla is asked to get in touch with him and let him know that he called so he can keep a rough count of how many people called them.
