OpenAI Introduces a New Feature That Protects Users’ Privacy

OpenAI Introduces a New Feature That Protects Users’ Privacy

On April 25, ChatGPT’s creator OpenAI announced a new feature that enables users to turn off chat history in the viral chatbot. 

The feature comes in following users’ privacy concerns. The new tool allows individuals to choose which conversations can be used to train OpenAI’s models. Users are now able to remove prompts from their history sidebars, as well as eliminate them from the OpenAI’s training models. 

However, this does not mean no one will ever access users’ dialogues with ChatGPT. Before permanently deleting the history, the company will monitor conversations for abuse.

It’s worth noting that some use ChatGPT as a “friend” or a personal psychologist, and such virtual conversations are better kept private. Some may wish to delete their chats from the database after the conversation occurs but still have access to them, after all, many enjoy re-reading their dialogues with the bot. That’s why ChatGPT has also introduced an “export” feature that allows users to download their questions, conversations, and other data. 

The community seems to be happy with the update. “It’s awesome to see a company actively working to empower its users and prioritize their data privacy. Keep up the great work!” wrote a Twitter user called Types Digital. 

The changes introduced by OpenAI are likely the reaction to the Italian ban on ChatGPT after the application was banned by Italian authorities. In March, Italy banned ChatGPT due to privacy concerns, prompting other countries to consider the risks the chatbot poses to their citizens. Following the talks with OpenAI, Italian data protection authority published a statement that would not lift the ban before the company took action to comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Notably, this is not the only update introduced by OpenAI. The company has also announced the upcoming business subscription for enterprises and professionals. The feature will provide a stronger data management option, meaning customers’ data will not be used to train OpenAI’s models by default. 

The organization has not shared the exact release date: However, we can expect ChatGPT Business to come out in the following few months.
