OpenAI has announced the release of a new feature called “incognito mode” on its popular chatbot, ChatGPT. This mode will not save users’ conversation history and will not use it to improve its artificial intelligence.
The San Francisco-based company also plans to launch a subscription called “ChatGPT Business” which will have additional data controls.
This release comes after Italy banned the use of ChatGPT due to possible privacy violations.
The new ChatGPT mode is unrelated to the ban in Italy but is part of the company’s efforts to put users “in the driver’s seat” when it comes to data collection.
Users will be able to turn off the “chat history & training” function in the chatbot’s settings and export their data.
However, OpenAI will retain conversations for 30 days to detect possible abuse before permanently deleting them.
OpenAI’s Chief Technology Officer, Mira Murati, says the company complies with European privacy laws and is working to ensure regulators are satisfied.
With this new feature, the company hopes to address users’ concerns about the privacy of their data.
