You no longer need to log in to ChatGPT, but you may still want to

OpenAI’s ChatGPT tool no longer requires users to log in, but that may not change much for long-time users.

Since its public release in November 2022, the basic version of the generative artificial intelligence chatbot ChatGPT has been free to use with just a login. However, now users don’t even need to log in to access the chat service. The tool, which recently reached 100 million users in 185 countries, has begun rolling out in select regions as of April 1, 2024.

However, users who regularly use ChatGPT may still want to log in, as some features are still limited to users with accounts. You won’t be able to save chats or use custom commands because the tool won’t remember past chats if you don’t have an account.

There will also be “additional content protection measures” for those who opt out of ChatGPT, although it’s unclear what that means. Currently, ChatGPT restricts the creation of content that may be harmful, biased, or unsafe, including content that depicts illegal behavior or may encourage illegal behavior, such as violence, drug use, or child pornography.

However, you will have access to the same models as the logged in user and can choose to turn off the data used to train the learning model. However, the latest upcoming models, such as the rumored ChatGPT 5, will most likely be reserved for paying users.

How to opt out of training without a ChatGPT account

To improve ChatGPT as a tool, OpenAI does use people’s chats to train its learning model. To avoid this, you need to actively opt out whether you are logged in or not.

You can do this by clicking the question mark button in the lower right corner and navigating to Settings. You’ll then find a toggle that says: “Improve models for everyone.” Turn this feature off so it is no longer blue and your chats and prompts will no longer be used to train the language model.

This process applies to logged in and logged out users of ChatGPT.
