OpenAI Announces Unrestricted Access to ChatGPT Without Sign-Up Requirement

OpenAI announces unrestricted access to ChatGPT, its generative AI chatbot, eliminating the sign-up requirement to democratize AI accessibility. Despite its growth slowdown, ChatGPT remains popular for its human-like conversation abilities and diverse tasks.

2 April 2024 – OpenAI, backed by Microsoft, has revealed plans to offer unrestricted access to its ChatGPT generative AI chatbot starting next Monday, removing the necessity for users to sign up. The move aims to democratize AI and provide accessibility to anyone interested in exploring its capabilities, following a slowdown in growth since May 2023. ChatGPT, known for its ability to mimic human conversation and perform diverse tasks such as summarizing text and generating ideas, has set records in user engagement, with traffic peaking at 1.8 billion web visits. To enhance user safety, additional content safeguards have been implemented, although specific categories were not disclosed. OpenAI also offers paid versions of ChatGPT for individuals, teams, and enterprises, providing varying levels of access and features. Despite this positive development, the announcement comes amidst controversy, including a lawsuit filed by Elon Musk against OpenAI and its CEO, Sam Altman, alleging a departure from the company’s original mission. – ref: Reuters
