ChatGPT has a new feature that lets it remember things you tell it. This means you don’t have to repeat yourself over and over.

How It Works

ChatGPT’s memory is like a notebook where it writes down things you say. You can tell it to forget things by saying, “Don’t store this in memory.”

What It Remembers

ChatGPT remembers things like:

  • Your preferences
  • Biographical information (e.g., your daughter’s name)
  • Your writing style preferences
  • Sensitive information (if you explicitly ask it to remember)


Some people are worried about what ChatGPT will remember. They’re concerned that it could accidentally leak sensitive information or learn too much about their personal lives.

OpenAI’s Response

OpenAI says it’s taking steps to address these concerns:

  • You can turn off memory at any time.
  • You can use a “temporary chat” option for memory-free conversations.
  • ChatGPT won’t remember sensitive information unless you explicitly ask it to.


The memory feature is currently in testing and will be rolled out to a small number of ChatGPT users this week.
