OpenAI has made it easier to use the free version of ChatGPT by removing the need to log into an account. Do note that this only applies to ChatGPT, as other OpenAI products like DALL-E 3 will still require you to log into an account.

While you can query ChatGPT to your heart’s content, you won’t be getting access to its full suite of services. For example, you can’t save and review your chat history, share chats, and unlock additional features like voice conversations and custom instructions. There are also content safeguards where ChatGPT will block prompts and generations in a wider range of categories.

OpenAI will also use your queries to train its models, but it does say that this can be turned off in settings.

According to the company, they are “rolling this out gradually, with the aim to make AI accessible to anyone curious about its capabilities.”
