How to Disable Chat History in ChatGPT
Before we continue, I’d want to point you that the ability to erase chat history and not utilize your data for model training is not limited to Chat GPT Plus subscribers. Every conversation GPT user may disable the conversation history function; here’s how:
Log into ChatGPT
Begin by connecting onto Chat GPT’s website by clicking the OpenAI login link here if you haven’t already. Enter your login credentials to be directed to the chat screen.
Access Account Settings
To open a pop-up menu, click on your profile symbol in the lower left corner of your main chat screen.
Once there, choose “Settings” to have access to all Chat GPT settings.
Show Data Controls
To access the history option, select Data Controls in the settings pop-up.
Turn off ChatGPT History
Finally, switch off the “Chat History & Training” toggle, and you’re done.
It’s as simple as that! Your Chat GPT history is no longer available, and new chats will no longer be utilized to train OpenAI’s LLM model. Your past conversations will be greyed out, with the option to immediately enable Chat GPT history if desired.
However, fresh discussions will still be kept for 30 days, but only for abuse monitoring. These will be permanently erased once the time period passes.
How to Clear Old ChatGPT Conversations
If you share a Chat GPT Plus account with someone or simply dislike clutter, you may easily delete previous ChatGPT messages. Here’s how you can go about it:
- Log into the Chat GPT website and then click on your profile image to bring up a pop-up menu.
- To begin erasing your chats, click “Clear Conversations” here.
It will now request that you confirm your activity. Simply click “Confirm clear conversations” to complete your selection.
Your previous Chat GPT chat history has now been completely cleared.
Please keep in mind that you will no longer be able to access your previous chats. However, if you follow our instructions above, you may always create a new chat that will not be utilized for training.
