On the other hand, using ChatGPT without creating an account has some disadvantages. When you create and use an account, features like saving and sharing chats or using special instructions are available. If you use it without an account, you lose these features. Also, the training data will include chat data without logging in.

OpenAI is aware of the potential risks of this new feature. That’s why it has taken additional security measures for non-account holders and against possible threats for users who have logged out of GPT-3.5.

OpenAI has also created special teams to combat the misuse of AI models. These teams were also involved in creating the new feature and have indicated that they will adjust accordingly if unexpected threats arise.
