Microsoft partially disallowed employees from accessing OpenAI’s ChatGPT, citing security reasons


Microsoft has prohibited employees from using ChatGPT, the startup’s most well-known application, for a brief period of time on Thursday.”

Microsoft has made billion-dollar investments in OpenAI. However, the software company’s employees were prohibited from using ChatGPT, the startup’s most well-known application, for a brief period of time on Thursday.

Microsoft said, “Due to security and data concerns a number of AI tools are no longer available for employees to use. While it is true that Microsoft has invested in OpenAI, and that ChatGPT has built-in safeguards to prevent improper use, the website is nevertheless a third-party external service. That means you must exercise caution using it due to risks of privacy and security. This goes for any other external AI services, such as Midjourney or Replika, as well.”

First Initiated Ban, Then Removed from Accessing ChatGPT & Canva

The company initially announced a ban on ChatGPT and Canva design software, but later removed ChatGPT from the list. Following the publication of this story, Microsoft restored access to ChatGPT.

Many large companies restrict ChatGPT use to prevent confidential data sharing. ChatGPT responds like humans, as it was trained on extensive internet data. The service has over 100 million users.

Microsoft Uses ChatGPT Model in Its Bing Chat-

The Microsoft Bing Chat product, which uses OpenAI artificial intelligence models, is what Microsoft’s update suggests users utilise. The two businesses are interconnected. This year, Microsoft has also been rather active in releasing upgrades for its Office suite and Windows operating system that utilise OpenAI services, which are hosted on Microsoft’s Azure cloud infrastructure.

A senior Microsoft programmer stated in a forum post in January that while staff members may utilise ChatGPT, they were not encouraged to provide sensitive information. 

Earlier this week, Anonymous Sudan claimed to have targeted ChatGPT due to “OpenAI’s cooperation with the occupation state of Israel” and Altman’s willingness to invest more in Israel.
