Tesla App Support
Download the Tesla app for iPhone or Android to remotely monitor and control your Tesla vehicle with your phone. After downloading and installing the application, use your Tesla account email address and password to connect to your vehicle.
Trouble with the app?
Your Tesla car, Powerwall or Powerpack must be delivered or installed for you to have app access. Car owners must have mobile access enabled in order to use the mobile app. You can enable and disable mobile access by going to ‘Controls’ and then ‘Safety & Security’ on your car touchscreen.
Powerwall owners must have their Powerwall registered, which is usually completed by technicians at the time of installation, in order to use the mobile app. Powerpack owners are granted access after commissioning by the Tesla team.
If you are having issues after your car has been delivered or after your Powerwall has been installed, first make sure that you are using the correct email address or password. To reset your password, please follow the instructions here. If this does not work email serviceANZ@tesla.com to request a temporary password.
If you are a Powerwall owner and your Powerwall was not registered at the time of installation, you can now complete Powerwall registration here.
Powerpack owners should submit any inquiries about the Tesla mobile app experience via the Online Support and Ticketing Portal at https://energysupport.tesla.com. Account creation may be required to submit a ticket for resolution.
If you're experiencing performance issues with the app, the following troubleshooting steps can also be used:
- Logging out and logging back in
- Deleting and reinstalling the app
- Powering off your phone completely, and powering it back on

The user will receive an email to validate their access. This can take up to 3-5 business days. Please keep in mind that this will grant the additional user access only to the Tesla mobile app, and allow them to monitor and control the vehicle.
