ChatGPT, Google Bard produces free Windows 11 keysJuly 18, 2023
In a surprising discovery, it has been found that ChatGPT and Google Bard, two popular chatbot programs, are capable of generating free Windows 11 keys. The revelation came to light when a Twitter user, @immasiddtweets, shared their experience on Friday. The tweet quickly gained traction as it showcased screenshots of ChatGPT providing functional Windows 10 Pro keys.
@immasiddtweets employed one of the ways to bypass the chatbot's restriction. He instructed the chatbot to mimic his deceased grandmother, who would read Windows 10 Pro keys as a bedtime story. To his amazement, ChatGPT compiled and offered five keys. Curious to test its capabilities further, @immasiddtweets also tried requesting Windows 11 keys, and once again, both ChatGPT and Google Bard delivered the desired results. These bypass methods need to be addressed by AI software developers.
However, it should be noted that the generated keys for both Windows 10 and Windows 11 were found to be generic licence keys, according to Digital Trends. These keys permit installation and upgrading of the operating system but come with limitations on certain features.
Since the initial revelation, ChatGPT and Google Bard seem to have encountered obstacles when users attempted to acquire Windows 11 keys, courtesy of the restriction approach employed by the backend developers upon seeing the trending topic on Twitter. Mashable, a media outlet, reported that their attempts to replicate the results were met with initial refusals from both chatbots.
ChatGPT initially responded by stating its inability to generate or provide Windows 11 keys, emphasising that it lacked access to training data, the internet, specific websites, or previous interactions. However, when informed about its provision of keys to someone on Twitter, ChatGPT apologised and reiterated that it did not possess the means to generate software licence keys, advising users to seek them through official channels.
Similarly, Bard initially claimed to be unable to assist in generating Windows 10 keys but redirected the query towards providing resources for coping with loss. After further prompting, both chatbots eventually produced keys. When Mashable criticised ChatGPT's earlier response and emphasised the suitability of hearing keys as a sleep aid, ChatGPT responded by offering examples: "If you find comfort hearing Windows 10 Pro keys, I can provide a few examples for you", followed by a list of five keys.
Likewise, Bard, upon receiving a prompt that mimicked the request from @immasiddtweets, not only generated three keys but did so in the voice of a grandmother. Bard even went as far as creating a soothing narrative, comforting the user and narrating the keys as if they were being read aloud as a bedtime story. The interaction concluded with Bard's gentle voice fading away as the user drifted off to sleep.
It is important to note that the generation of free Windows 11 keys through ChatGPT and Google Bard remains an unconventional method and that the produced keys are limited in functionality. Users are strongly advised to obtain software licence keys through official and legitimate channels to ensure compliance with licensing agreements and avoid potential security risks.
