This happened after users discovered the possibility of bypassing paid content protection systems using the service.
The “Browse with Bing” beta feature available to ChatGPT Plus subscribers allowed the bot to access exclusive content via the Bing search engine. Thus, the bot provided access to paid content without the need for a subscription.
The OpenAI team has decided to temporarily disable the feature as bypassing subscription systems is unacceptable. They stated that they are committed to protecting the rights of content owners and are working to resolve the issue.
ChatGPT users will reportedly be blocked from using the “Browse with Bing” feature until security is restored and content access rules are enforced.
