Which countries is the ChatGPT iOS app available in?

You can find the full list here.

Do you collect my precise location data through the iOS App?

No. Our iOS App doesn’t access your device’s Location Services, Bluetooth, or other services to collect or approximate your precise location data. We do collect your IP address, however. IP addresses can be used to estimate the device’s country, state, and city.

Do you store audio clips from the speech-to-text feature?

No. We send audio clips from our speech-to-text feature to our servers so that we can use our Whisper API to transcribe them, but we don’t retain voice clips beyond what’s necessary to complete the transcription.

Audio clips are also briefly copied to your iOS device’s temporary storage, and are deleted in accordance with your operating system’s design. After transcription, we do not access or use audio clips that are in temporary storage for any purpose.

Do you train your models on audio clips from the speech-to-text feature?

No. We only use the audio clips to prepare a transcription using our Whisper API. The clips are then deleted, which means that we do not use the audio clips to improve our models.

Transcriptions are used as inputs to ChatGPT and appear in conversation histories, which may be used to improve our models (depending on user settings).

Are Chat History & Training controls available on the iOS App?

You can access Chat History & Training controls by opening the menu through the three dots in the top right corner of your screen, selecting “Settings,” then clicking “Data Controls.” You should see “Chat History & Training” with a toggle.

When Chat History is turned off, new chats started on the iOS app won't appear in your history on any of your devices, be used to train our models, or stored for longer than 30 days. This setting does not sync across browsers or devices. Learn more here.

I disabled Chat History & Training on my browser. Does that mean Chat History & Training will also be off on my iOS app?

No. Chat History & Training settings do not sync across browsers, applications, or devices. You must disable Chat History & Training on each browser, application, or device separately.
