ChatGPT, hailed for kickstarting the GenAI phenomenon in late 2022, boasts the ability to engage in human-like conversations and perform various tasks, from summarizing lengthy texts to crafting poetry and brainstorming ideas for themed parties.

Emphasizing inclusivity, the San Francisco-based firm stated that the decision to remove the sign-up requirement aims to democratize access to AI, catering to anyone intrigued by its capabilities.

Despite its initial meteoric rise, with a peak of 1.8 billion web visits in May 2023, data from analytics firm Similarweb suggests that growth for the service has tapered off in recent times.

To ensure a safer experience for users exploring ChatGPT without registration, OpenAI has implemented enhanced content safeguards.

These measures include the blocking of prompts and generated content across a broader spectrum of categories, although specific categories were not disclosed.

In addition to the free iteration of ChatGPT, which operates without direct internet access, OpenAI offers paid versions tailored for individuals, teams, and enterprises alike.
