Furthermore, the platform criticized some apps for charging an expensive sum for services generally supplied for free by OpenAI. The most worrying thing to come out of Top10VPN's investigation is the potential that these applications are compromising the users' privacy. Upon further research, it was determined that the Android apps had intrusive personal data acquired through the use of third-party tracking, IP addresses, and device fingerprinting. iOS apps, on the other hand, are guilty of intrusive personal data collecting, tracking conversation content, phoning home to the server, and having privacy label mistakes. As if that wasn't enough, some of these apps have also been found to be leveraging OpenAI's GPT-3 technology to charge as much as $15,000 per year for access.
