OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT, has introduced a new feature that enables users to disable their chat histories. Although users will lose their archive of conversations, this is good news for anyone who values their privacy.
This article by Jake Peterson, writing for Lifehacker, makes the following points:
- ChatGPT uses your conversations to improve its accuracy and usefulness.
- Although this assists with the bot's development, it can lead to privacy violations.
- OpenAI will still retain conversations for 30 days, but the chats will then be permanently deleted.
