Some users have recently been prompted to allow the Tesla app to access their motion and fitness activity. According to Tesla's app product manager, this allows the app to more readily know when the phone is moved, instead of relying solely on location.

If your living space is near where your vehicle is parked, this can reduce unexpected unlocking of the vehicle due to proximity.

Future Feature

In this app update, Tesla refers to a future feature that may allow you to share the vehicle with someone with some additional privacy. The feature may prevent others from viewing the vehicle's current location in the app, according to @Tesla_App_iOS.

Tesla appears to be adding more privacy changes lately. In car update 2023.38, Tesla now displays an icon in the status bar if a third-party app or service receives the vehicle's location.

A future app update may give you more granular access to whether the vehicle's location is accesible by other individuals or services.
