According to OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, a ChatGPT fault enabled certain users to access the titles of other users’ talks. He apologised for the “serious” error, but he said it had been fixed.
On social media platforms like Reddit and Twitter, users posted screenshots of chat logs with the allegation that they did not create them. Many users are still concerned about the privacy of the platform despite the fix.
Millions of users have used ChatGPT to write messages, compose music, and even programme since its release in November of last year. The user’s chat history, which may be seen afterwards, records every conversation they have with the chatbot.
But, individuals began to notice conversation histories in their accounts early this week that they had never had with the chatbot.
A Reddit user shared a screenshot of their chat history, which had chats in Mandarin with topics like “China Socialist Development.”
OpenAI informed Bloomberg on Tuesday that they had temporarily disabled the chatbot in order to fix the issue. Users couldn’t access the actual discussions at that time, the business added.
Due to the most recent bug, there are now worries about possible data breaches because OpenAI has access to people’s private discussions. A “technical postmortem” to look into the situation would shortly be done, according to a tweet from OpenAI’s CEO.
