ChatGPT is the new hotness on the Internet. This AI tool can answer almost any question. Convenience comes with the fear that ChatGPT will store your data. Therefore, it is recommended to opt out of ChatGPT data collection when using ChatGPT.
Does ChatGPT store your data?
There are no privacy or security concerns involved in using ChatGPT to write poems, solve math problems, and more. However, you need to exercise caution if you use ChatGPT to rewrite confidential information or corporate data/communications. Many companies have banned the use of artificial intelligence in the workplace. For example, investment firms such as JPMorgan Chase fear that sensitive financial data will find its way onto the platform and be shared with criminals. Amazon is another major company that has warned its employees not to share company codes and other confidential information on ChatGPT.
