Italy Blocks ChatGPT: Here’s Why?

Italy Blocks ChatGPT

Italy is now blocking ChatGPT for an unusual period of time. Italians will lose access to ChatGPT due to orders from the Privacy Guarantor. The move comes in response to OpenAI’s violation of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This has been a concern for Italy for a long time, and now Italy blocks ChatGGPT.

According to Italy’s Privacy Guarantor, there is no “legal basis” to allow OpenAI to collect so much data. Moreover, there is no guarantee that ChatGPT provides accurate results depending on the data collected. The guarantor says that there were similar leaks of highly sensitive user data last week. Therefore, Italian regulators are cautious about banning ChatGPT.

Why Does Italy Blocks ChatGPT?

Italy blocks ChatGPT because OpenAI does not take enough measures to protect the data of users, including children. Moreover, the data agency claims that the AI tool is only usable for people over 13, but it also gives improper answers to children due to a lack of controls.

In a recent development, the DPA has given OpenAI 20 days to develop an outline. The outline must show solutions on how OpenAI will counteract such privacy issues. If the AI company fails to comply for any reason, it will have to pay $21.8m or four percent of OpenAI’s annual net income.

Engadget reached out to the company for comment on this uncertain situation. As soon as the company makes an official statement, we will update you here. In addition, the OpenAI ChatGPT has a detailed privacy policy, which states that the trainers can use the data to improve artificial intelligence. Moreover, it also collects or combines the data.

This is highly controversial because OpenAI’s terms and conditions emphasize that users under 13 can’t use the application. On the other hand, it collects data and other personal information from underage users.
