Doing This Will Surely Trigger ChatGPT's System Anomaly Detection, Resolved it Just 3 Steps!


ChatGPT has become an indispensable tool in many people’s work due to its powerful content generation capabilities, multilingual translation, customization options, and continuous improvements. However, recently, many users have received the prompt “ChatGPT: Our system has detected abnormal activity on your system. Please try again later.” It is important to note that this prompt is an indication that the ChatGPT account may be suspended.

Based on extensive user research, we have identified the following behaviors that can trigger the detection of system anomalies by ChatGPT:

  1. Frequent IP address switching: If you frequently switch IP addresses within a short period of time using the same OpenAI API key to request services, the system may detect this as abnormal activity. Such behavior can be considered unusual usage patterns. Therefore, it is advisable to maintain a relatively stable IP address and consistent use of the API key while using ChatGPT.
  2. Multiple accounts using the same IP address: If multiple accounts are using the same IP address, especially in cases where this frequently occurs with purchased ChatGPT accounts, the system may interpret it as a behavior indicative of machine-generated accounts, leading to the detection of abnormal activity. To avoid this situation, it is recommended to use separate IP addresses for each account.
  3. Using an unstable VPN or being located in an unsupported country: If you are using an unstable VPN connection or located in a country not supported by ChatGPT, it may result in system anomalies. OpenAI suggests using a stable and secure VPN connection and ensuring that the IP address is located in a region where the service is supported, such as the United States.

These are some common reasons that may lead to the detection of system anomalies by ChatGPT. To ensure the best user experience, it is advised to use ChatGPT in a stable system environment and comply with OpenAI’s usage rules and guidelines. This will reduce the risk of being detected for abnormal activity and ensure smooth usage of ChatGPT for intelligent conversations.

To resolve the issue of being detected for system anomalies by ChatGPT, you can take the following steps:

  1. Adhere to OpenAI’s usage rules and guidelines: Ensure that you comply with OpenAI’s usage rules and terms when using ChatGPT. This includes avoiding the abuse of API keys, refraining from malicious activities, and not engaging in unauthorized actions. Following these rules will lower the probability of being detected for system anomalies.
  2. Use a stable system environment: Ensure that your system environment is stable and meets the requirements of ChatGPT. This includes using a stable network connection, avoiding frequent IP address switching, and choosing a reliable VPN service (if necessary). A stable system environment helps reduce the likelihood of being detected for anomalies.
  3. Contact the technical support team: If you are following the rules and still experiencing system anomalies, it is recommended to contact OpenAI’s technical support team. They can provide further assistance and guidance to address your specific issues.

Please note that these measures may temporarily solve the problem, and the solutions may vary depending on the specific circumstances. If you continue to encounter issues, it is best to directly communicate with OpenAI’s technical support team for personalized help and guidance.
