  • Security: Nikola does not store your account password. The Nikola App communicates directly with Tesla to obtain an Authentication Token and uses the token to track driving and charging metrics. Our servers never see your password. For super technical users, Nikola now accepts "Refresh Tokens" so you do not have to enter a password at all.

  • You can pause logging of driving and charging metrics at any time.

  • Nikola does not need to be open on your phone for metrics to be logged to the app.


About Nikola


Nikola was built by a former Apple engineer, and was designed with privacy in mind. David Hodge is a long-time transportation enthusiast, and was founder and CEO of Embark, a transportation app with millions of users that was acquired by Apple. At Apple, David was an engineering leader during the comeback of Apple Maps, where he helped launch Transit, Nearby, Maps on Apple Watch and more.


David built Nikola because he loves his Tesla, and when friends asked for a copy of Nikola, he decided to put it on the App Store.
