A woman went viral on TikTok by sharing a video in which she tells how her 10-month-old spent $ 10,000 on the Tesla app.

This happened when the mother loaned her son the iPad to entertain him while she cooked. Pushing buttons, the baby inadvertently got into his Tesla car app and bought a "complete autonomous driving package."

Well our son decided we needed the self driving package we debated on before #tesla #teslaworld #ohno #foryou #fyp

Oh No - Kreepa

They didn't realize it until the bank statement arrived several days later. Tesla's policy is that there is no refund after 48 hours, so they couldn't get the money back.

The video that he uploaded to TikTok went viral quickly, at the moment it has 1.8 million views and more than 200 thousand likes. In addition to showing a photo of the baby, the proof of payment and a video in which he controls his car from the iPad, in the tiktok he claims that there should be a password to be able to approve the payment in the application.

Many netizens took her side saying that it is necessary to add more security while others scold her for leaving her son alone with an iPad and some said that she made the mistake and was only blaming her son for not taking responsibility.
