OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, has announced an update which allows users to control the use of their conversations with the artificial intelligence chatbot by disabling the conversation history.
However, new exchanges will be saved for 30 days before being permanently deleted. While this new feature is not perfect, it is a step in the right direction to protect users' sensitive information.
How to disable ChatGPT history
To disable ChatGPT's history, simply go to the settings, click on “Data Controls”, and then click on “Show” to disable the history. There is also an option to export the data.
OpenAI is working on a new subscription for professionals
In addition to the privacy update, OpenAI is working on a new subscription called ChatGPT Business that will launch in the coming months. It will be aimed at professionals who need more control over their data, as well as businesses looking to manage their end-user data. The new subscription will obey ChatGPT's API data usage policies.
ChatGPT is constantly evolving, with new features to improve the user experience, but it's important not to share sensitive information with the chatbot. Rest assured, users now have more control over how their conversations are used and what data is stored by ChatGPT. Stay tuned for future updates on privacy with ChatGPT.
