ChatGPT-User is dispatched by OpenAI's ChatGPT in response to user prompts. Its answers will usually contain a summary of the content on the website, along with a reference link.

Expected Behavior

AI assistants generally make one-off visits to websites based on user requests, rather than crawling the web in any automatic fashion.

Access Control

Should I Block ChatGPT-User?

Probably not. AI assistants visit websites directly on behalf of human users, so blocking them will effectively block those users. This could lead to a poor user experience and possible negative sentiment about your website. Not blocking AI assistants will allow more human users to use your website as they choose.

Using Robots.txt

User Agent Token Description
ChatGPT-User Should match instances of ChatGPT-User

You can block ChatGPT-User or limit its access by setting user agent token rules in your website's robots.txt.

# robots.txt
# This should block ChatGPT-User

User-agent: ChatGPT-User
Disallow: /

Instead of doing this manually, you can generate a robots.txt that stays up to date with the agent list automatically.
