As the popularity of ChatGPT and GenAI apps rises, ensuring responsible data sharing is crucial. We developed an extension that displays a persistent reminder to warn users against sharing private or sensitive information.
ChatGPT (and other GenAI apps) continue to garner interest and leverage by individuals and organizations. (At Fringe Legal, it's part of many workflows.)
However, as users continue to leverage GPT more and more, providing guidance around what can and should not be shared with these models has become vitally important.
Restricting access is not the best approach, instead, providing training and support will lead to better long-term results.
One way to do this is through a persistent popup reminding users not to insert any private or sensitive data into the session. This can be achieved by creating a plugin (e.g. for Chrome) - an idea that was shared by a innovative firm in Asia Pacific.
As a fun project, we spent an hour creating a MVP.
The goal of the extension is relatively straightforward: when installed, every time a user visits "chat.openai.com" it will show a persistent notification flagging that no private or sensitive information should be shared during the chat.
It's made up of three files, and three icons:
