ChatGPT users beware: bug exposes third-party chat history

OpenAI temporarily disabled ChatGPT's chat history sidebar on Monday.

A flaw was discovered that displayed to users descriptions of third-party discussions.

A Reddit user and a Twitter user both reported the problem.

OpenAI acknowledged that the flaw only revealed chat titles, not full transcripts.

Users are advised not to divulge sensitive information in their chats with OpenAI.

OpenAI cannot omit certain excerpts from training talks.
