Elon Musk Fights Back Against Fans Tracking His Whereabouts After Security Concerns

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has told fans that he believes that people tracking his travels plans has become “a security issue”. this comes only days after rumours surfaced of him travelling to Germany to visit the Gigafactory Berlin. This was untrue, but he believes this could create issues in the future.

After reports that Musk would fly to Germany to inspect Tesla’s first European manufacturing site on Sunday circulated, Musk stated that the rumours of his planned journeys have become a problem for his safety.

According to reports, Tesla has submitted paperwork to the local Environmental Ministry as Gigafactory Berlin nears production approval, and some may have expected Musk to visit Germany as he would almost certainly be there for the factory’s first day of operation. However, Sawyer Merritt, a Tesla insider, announced potential travel plans before quickly deleting them. Musk later said that fans shouldn’t do this.

Other technologies have previously been utilized to follow Elon Musk’s travels. Plane trackers and Twitter accounts keep track of practically every movement from Musk’s personal jet, a Gulfstream G650ER worth between $60 and $70 million. However, it may be best to eliminate these trackers because they put Musk and his family in danger if the plane is ever lost.

Unfortunately, while Elon is well respected by fans of Tesla and many communities, the CEO also has a lot of enemies, so it’s no surprise that Elon is worried about his whereabouts being tracked.

Elon Musk stated that he would visit the German factory in mid-February, but he didn’t give any additional information on dates, which is hardly surprising.

Gigafactory Berlin was planned to begin producing in late 2021, but the German approval procedure, which Musk has criticized in the past, appears to be delaying production.
