Just got my Model 3 TODAY! Very excited! But once I got the car back home, and tried to connect to my home WiFi, I could not enter my password because it contains a \ symbol (backslash, not forward slash). I searched all over the car's keyboard, tried difference combinations of using the Shift key (long pressed the / key like you do on the iPhone), but I could not find this character.

Do special characters like this exist on the Tesla, or do I have to change my Home Wifi password (which is connected to about 20-30 various device - maybe more)?

If special characters like the \ are not supported, does anyone know if they will be in the new firmware 9?

Many thanks
Greg

Not in the car to check my keyboard so I'm not aware of what keys are there, sounds like you've done a thorough job.

I just happen to be sitting in an IT audit meeting however, so just thinking maybe this is the perfect time to update that password and reassure yourself you are secure !
