Be aware that there are fake ChatGPT apps on official mobile app stores such as the App Store and Google Play Store. These apps, created by cybercriminals, may advertise themselves as being from OpenAI but they are not legitimate. Do not download or use any of these fake apps.
OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which was launched in November, is a popular AI chatbot known for its detailed answers and reliable service. However, due to the increasing popularity of ChatGPT, cybercriminals have taken advantage by creating fake apps to scam people.
Fake ChatGPT Apps Have Grown
There has been a recent increase in the number of fake apps in the official app stores for Android and iOS that mimic the popular OpenAI chatbot system, ChatGPT. These apps, created by various developers, aim to trick users into downloading them by pretending to be the real ChatGPT.
If you are considering using the ChatGPT chatbot for research or any other purpose, it is important to be cautious. Not only will you not be getting the real service, but you may also be led to believe that the service is not working well or not working at all.
A simple search for “ChatGPT” in your app store will likely reveal a large number of these fake apps.
It is important to note that OpenAI does not have an app for its AI chatbot, ChatGPT. Therefore, any app claiming to be one does not exist and should not be downloaded. Additionally, the service is currently unavailable. Until recently, it was available for free.
If you come across an app that poses as the ChatGPT service and claims to work, it is not true and the app’s creators are likely attempting to steal your money. Many of these fake apps require payment in order to use them, often claiming to be a “premium version” of ChatGPT.
OpenAI is Working to Bring Back ChatGPT
It is true that OpenAI is working on a paid version of ChatGPT, but it is currently not available, and it is not available in the form of an app. Currently, ChatGPT can only be accessed through its official website. Therefore, it is advisable to not download any apps claiming to be ChatGPT as it would be a waste of money and you would not be receiving the service that you were looking for.
It is also important to note that it may not be long before a virus-infected app appears, so app stores should be vigilant in checking for potential risks. If you wish to try ChatGPT, it is best to wait for the official version to be released again and ensure that you are accessing the correct service.
