📄️ Introduction to Authentication
ChatGPT Plugins provide a robust framework for creating custom interactions with the ChatGPT model. A crucial aspect of these interactions is the ability to secure them using various authentication methods. This article will cover the authentication possibilities currently supported by ChatGPT Plugins.
