On Wednesday, ChatGPT owner OpenAI patched a flaw that allowed a small number of users to see others’ chatbot discussion titles.
The patch will prevent users from accessing chat history between 1 am and 10 am on March 20, Chief Executive Sam Altman tweeted.

Since its introduction late last year, ChatGPT has grown rapidly as people worldwide used its prompts to write poems, books, jokes, and film scripts.
OpenAI, supported by Microsoft Corp., released GPT 4, an AI model, last week. ChatGPT users had access to GPT 3.5 on November 30.
