The usefulness of the ChatGPT artificial intelligence is no longer being demonstrated, and, unsurprisingly, it has given ideas to unreliable developers. One of them has probably managed to make a lot of money in a short period by paying for a service that is nevertheless free.

ChatGPT changed the way hundreds of millions of Internet users saw artificial intelligences until then. Many of us tried the experiment by asking a question to this AI developed by OpenAI, or trying to have a concrete conversation with it.

Is It Paid ChatGPT?A phony iOS app that scams you

ChatGPT Chat GPT AI With GPT-3 has established itself in the Apple App Store in recent days. This application then provided unlimited access to ChatGPTad-free and with full feature activation.

Faced with the price difference, it’s safe to assume that many people directly paid for an annual subscription... Except that this was in no way justified since the application simply redirected the user to the ChatGPT website.

Apple has removed an app from the app, but...

Faced with its media exposure, the app was swiftly removed from the App Store by Apple. Despite its short existence, it managed to occupy the second position of the most downloaded apps in the "Productivity" category. It's difficult, nonetheless, to know how many people paid a subscription among the tens of thousands of people who downloaded the application.

ChatGPT Chat GPT AI With GPT-3 has recently caught users' attention, but it was only there for three weeks on the App Store before Apple took an interest in it and ended up removing it. Its activity was suspect from the start since ChatGPT has never paid for the last few weeks, since the application was validated by Apple. If there were subscriptions, the business would probably receive a commission.

We must therefore be vigilant when an emerging trend such as artificial intelligence comes to the forefront, so that we do not risk being taken in by developers who only want your money.
