ChatGPT users can now turn off their chat history, so OpenAI will not use chat data to train AI models. This was reported by Bloomberg.
To do this, account holders must click a switch in their settings. Such an option can be a guarantee of privacy for people who share “closed” information with the chatbot.
OpenAI aims to make it easier for people to use ChatGPT in various fields.
“We want to move more in this direction where people who are using our products can decide how their data is being used — if it’s being used for training or not,” OpenAI Chief Technology Officer Mira Murati said.
At the same time, the company will continue to train its models on correspondence by default. Information will be stored for 30 days before deletion. However, in the coming months, OpenAI plans to launch a subscription business plan that will not use user data for training by default.
Earlier, scientists from the University of Quebec in Canada concluded that ChatGPT produces mostly insecure code but doesn’t warn users about flaws until they ask about it themselves.
