You can now use ChatGPT without creating an account, but with limitations

Until now, OpenAI, the company that created ChatGPT, required creating a user account to be able to use the conversational chatbot developed through Artificial Intelligence. This was free, but it involved offering the company some information.

However, from now on you can use ChatPT without having to create a user account. It will only be necessary to browse the ChatGPT website to be able to use the tool, as OpenAI has confirmed.

The objective of this measure is, as the company has pointed out, “to make tools like ChatGPT available to everyone and so that more people can benefit from using ChatGPT just by browsing the portal.”

Making access to ChatGPT easier, eliminating requirements for its use, will certainly contribute to increasing the use of the platform. But the measure has “some small print”, since some restrictions are established on the free use of ChatGPT.

Restrictions on free use of ChatGPT

For example, you will not be able to save or review your chat history with ChatGPT if you have not created an OpenAI account. You will also not be able to share the results with other people directly. In addition, you will not be able to use personalized instructions and prompts, nor change the voices of the conversations.

However, even if you do not create an OpenAI account, you can prevent the conversations you have with ChatGPT from being used for analysis and allowing the tool’s systems to be trained to offer responses to other users in the future.

To do this, you just have to access the configuration menu – a small menu in the lower right corner of the screen that is accessed through a question mark that you have to press – and uncheck the “improve the model for everyone” option. an option that is activated by default and that allows OpenAI to use all your activity on the platform to train its models. By deactivating it, the company will no longer be able to use your conversations.

It is curious that OpenAI allows the tool to be used without “making users pay” with their data, but this completely anonymous use could also lead to fraudulent use of the tool. In this sense, OpenAI claims to be prepared to block prompts and creations that may be compromised or constitute a threat or crime.
