It is always fun to interact with an AI, asking strange questions, and getting it to write a song or give us a poem or short story. But is the AI keeping track of us? Specifically, does ChatGPT save data? Here's what you need to know.
Clearly, we are all aware of cookies, but this is something different. One might be worried, especially considering all the issues with ChatGPT such as history gone, too many requests error and internal server error.
There is definitely some data saved by the AI, but which one? Let's take a look and find out if ChatGPT saves data and which it is keeping.
Does ChatGPT save data?
ChatGPT definitely does save data.
Each time we chat with the AI, everything we talked about is saved as a conversation thread. This is not done for spying purposes, but only to improve the AI’s accuracy, so that it can more effectively understand each query.
But you might be worried about what is the AI doing with its data, so let's take a look and see in more detail.
How does ChatGPT manage data?
The chat adheres to the most strict international privacy standards, it does not share any information with third parties without consent and it is compliant with GDPR, CCPA, and several data protection regulations.
Each conversation is also encrypted so that there is no easy way to access data from the outside, the company takes the security and privacy of the users' data very seriously.
Is ChatGPT confidential?
Short answer, yes. The data that you input and the questions that you ask will not be shared and, as mentioned, each conversation has end-to-end encryption so that only the sender and the receiver can see it.
But still, we would recommend being cautious about the kind of information you share online. While ChatGPT remains, overall, secure, sharing your personal information and confidential data would still be not recommended.
