Do I have to verify my phone number when creating an account?

Yes. ChatGPT requires you to verify your phone number when creating an account. Even if you use Microsoft or Google account, it is mandatory to verify your phone number.

Why does ChatGPT need my phone number when creating a new account?

According to the official documentation on OpenAI, ChatGPT requires a phone number for security reasons.

They state on their official document:

  • When you sign up for our platform, we do require a phone number for security reasons.
  • This allows us to verify your account and ensure our platform remains secure.
  • We don’t use your phone number for any other purposes, and we take your privacy very seriously.

Can I use the same mobile number for additional accounts?

You can use the same phone number to verify 2 different accounts at most.

Does ChatGPT send the verification code via voice/email?

Phone verification can only be accomplished through a text message via SMS (or WhatsApp if it is available in your country). The code cannot be sent via email or phone call.

Why is ChatGPT always down?

Because ChatGPT got popular very quickly and the developer company seems to struggle to scale their servers to adapt. They also serve the whole world and experience very high demand. It seems that this causes their server couldn’t respond very well to new circumstances from time to time.

How to log in when ChatGPT is down?

If you are struggling to log in to ChatGPT because it is down, there is actually not so much thing to do by yourself. The only free thing that is worth doing is to log out and try to log in.

If you want to get more resources, the most effective way is to upgrade your account to ChatGPT Plus. Because we know that OpenAI prioritizes paid users and they allocate more resources to them. However, note that being a Plus member doesn’t always guarantee you access ChatGPT whenever you want.

How to Upgrade ChatGPT account to Plus?

ChatGPT Plus is a paid subscription service that provides users with faster response times, priority access to new features, and access to ChatGPT even during high-demand periods. ChatGPT Plus members also have the added benefit of being able to use the latest GPT-4 model.

To have a ChatGPT Plus membership, you first need to have a standard ChatGPT membership.

Step 1: Log in to ChatGPT

After creating your account or with your existing account, you must log in to ChatGPT.

Step 2: Click “Upgrade to Plus” button on the menu located on the left.

Step 3: Click “Upgrade plan” after the pop-up menu appears.

Step 4: Complete all payment information and click the “Subscribe” button located at the bottom.

It costs $20 per month.

Do ChatGPT Plus members experience errors too?

The most common errors encountered by users with a standard ChatGPT membership are: “too many requests in one hour” and “ChatGPT is at capacity right now.” Having a ChatGPT Plus membership does not necessarily mean that you will never encounter errors. However, since you have more resources than standard users, the likelihood of encountering errors is still lower.

Can Plus members use the GPT-4 model?

On March 14th, 2023, OpenAI announced its latest model, GPT-4. As of now, only members with access to ChatGPT Plus are able to utilize this more powerful model. However, there are some limits to prompts that you give to GPT-4 model even if you are a Plus member.
