You should uninstall these dangerous fake ChatGPT apps right now


ChatGPT

Hackers are already pointing the tip of their noses in the direction of ChatGPT, taking advantage of its popularity. On both the App Store and Google Play Store, clone applications soon took off. Obviously, you need to be cautious of them because they were built to steal your data and force you to spend enormous quantities of money.

The chatbot developed by OpenAI was quickly used maliciously. While fake apps are attempting to trick users, hackers are already using ChatGPT to steal users’ data. Fake copies of the app are available on the Google Play Store and App Store for an expensive monthly fee.

There are a ton of them available on the App Store and Google Play Store, as Top10VPN demonstrates. Despite the fact that there is only an online version of ChatGPT now, developers have inundated app stores with their copied apps to steal your data.

Gizchina News of the week


Top10VPN came to the following conclusion after conducting a number of in-depth analyses of the most well-known ChatGPT-3-based applications: “What we found were a handful of unclean, fake apps that brought no value to users. Instead, they invaded their privacy to use their data. Your location information is shared with ByteDance, Amazon, Appodeal, and InMobi, among others, via the ChatGPT AI Writing Assistant app”.

The platform also criticizes some apps for charging expensive amounts for services that are offered for free. “An application costs $290 per week, which is equivalent to more than $15,000 per year,”. Remember that ChatGPT is an entirely free tool. Undoubtedly, OpenAI provides a $20 monthly membership with certain benefits (priority access, better responsiveness, testing of new functions)…

Here are the many ways that these fraudulent applications violate your privacy:
