Every tenth business information entered into chatGPT is sensitive, our research revealed!

ChatGPT has grown in popularity for its ability to learn and generate human-like responses to a wide range of inputs. While this technology has proven incredibly useful, there are concerns about the potential for storing sensitive data within the model. To address these concerns and minimize the risks of data loss associated with ChatGPT (as well as other recent AI tools), Safetica offers an effective solution.

The Need for Data Privacy and Security

ChatGPT is a "generative AI," a machine learning algorithm that can understand language and generate written responses. Users interact with ChatGPT by asking questions, and OpenAI stores the resulting conversations to further train its machine-learning models.

According to OpenAI's privacy policy, ChatGPT gathers the following information:

  • Account information provided during sign-up or payment for a premium plan.
  • Information typed or pasted into the chatbot during interactions.
  • Identifying data from users' devices or browsers, such as IP addresses and locations.

As ChatGPT revolutionizes the way we interact with technology in various domains, the need to prioritize data privacy and security becomes increasingly apparent. Real-world instances, like employees at Samsung unintentionally feeding sensitive information to ChatGPT while checking source code, underscore the significance of safeguarding confidential data.
