    When using generative AI models such as ChatGPT, the main concern is keeping your data safe. To help with this, OpenAI announced new features that add an additional layer of security to ChatGPT and API accounts.

    On Thursday, OpenAI announced via X Post that users will now have the option to enable multi-factor authentication (also known as 2FA), which will make it harder for unauthorized users to access their accounts .

    We also used ChatGPT to create the same routines in 12 major programming languages.Here's how it looks

    Setting up multi-factor authentication is easy. As seen in the video above, all a user needs to do is click on their name in the bottom left corner of the screen,[設定]Click[多要素認証]next to the option[有効にする]Just click.

    Users may then be asked to sign in again to authenticate their account. Alternatively, you will immediately see a new page called “Secure your account.” On this page, users are asked to use their smartphone to scan her QR code using their preferred authenticated app and enter the one-time code provided into the text box.

    There are many authentication apps on the market, including Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, and Twilio Authy. Once this step is complete, your 2FA setup is complete.

    If you're wondering whether adding an extra layer of security is worth it, as ZDNET's Ed Bott explains, “Two-factor authentication stops most casual attacks.” . It's very simple to set up, so getting some extra security and peace of mind isn't a bad thing.
