OpenAI has disabled ChatGPT's Browse with Bing feature after some users discovered that it can be used to bypass paywalls, which are often used by news publications to encourage readers to sign up for a paid subscription.

"We have learned that the ChatGPT Browse beta can occasionally display content in ways we don't want," OpenAI wrote in a post on Monday.

OpenAI pointed to instances where a ChatGPT Plus subscriber would ask the chatbot for the full text of a URL, and ChatGPT would respond with the complete text, bypassing paywalls and privacy settings.

With web browsing disabled, ChatGPT will not display information beyond its training data cutoff date of September 2021.
