Elon Musk said social-media accounts tracking his movements were "becoming a security issue."

The Tesla CEO on Monday responded to a tweet discussing the risk posed to Musk and his family in publicly posting details about his travel plans.

"Yeah, unfortunately this is becoming a security issue," Musk said, without providing details.

Earlier Monday, Musk denied a report from Drive Tesla Canada that he was due to visit Tesla's Gigafactory in Berlin, Germany, this week.

Musk said on Twitter: "I obv can't comment on every rumor, but this isn't true. Am headed to Berlin mid Feb, not this week."

The report described a person familiar with the matter as saying Musk was set to travel around Germany in two Model Ys made at the Berlin Gigafactory.

Musk said at the Giga-Fest event in October that the factory was set to start producing Model Ys in November or December, Bloomberg reported.

He added that Tesla was planning to make 5,000 to 10,000 Model Ys a week at the Gigafactory by the end of 2022, according to Bloomberg.
