Padlock on a circuit board

I have just spotted a significant update that’s gone somewhat under the radar, OpenAI has revamped its data privacy controls for ChatGPT free and Plus accounts. Previously, users had to opt out of conversation history to prevent their chats from being used for training data. Now, you can opt out of data sharing while retaining access to your chat history. This change marks a big step forward for both privacy and usability. Here’s what you need to know.

Why This Matters

Maintaining control over your data is crucial for protecting sensitive information and ensuring compliance with privacy regulations. With this new feature, OpenAI addresses a major concern, making it easier to manage your data without sacrificing functionality. This is particularly beneficial for businesses handling confidential information.

How to Opt Out

Follow these simple steps to enhance your data privacy:

Log into Your Account:

  • Open the ChatGPT application or visit the website and log into your free or Plus account.

Access Settings:

  • Click on your profile icon in the top-right corner.

  • Select “Settings” from the dropdown menu.

Navigate to Data Controls:

  • In the settings menu, locate and click on “Data Controls.”

Opt Out of Data Sharing:

  • Under the Data Controls section, you will find an option to “Improve the Model for Everyone.”

  • Toggle this option to “Off” to stop sharing your conversation data without losing access to your conversation history.

Save Changes:

  • Ensure you save any changes before exiting the settings menu.

This update shows OpenAI’s commitment to user privacy and improving user experience. Whether you're using ChatGPT for generating business reports, brainstorming sessions, or customer interactions, you can now do so with greater confidence in your data's security.

Key Benefits

  • Enhanced Privacy: Protect your sensitive data without sacrificing access to valuable chat history.

  • Improved Usability: Continue using ChatGPT's powerful features while maintaining control over your data.

  • Compliance: Better alignment with data protection regulations and company privacy policies.

This small change is a big step forward for both free and Plus users, providing a more secure and user-friendly experience.
