  • Take care with the data you provide to AI. Avoid providing personal information for yourself or others.
  • Be aware of the AI tool’s settings. Disable the tool from learning from your entries if possible.
  • Validate its outputs. Current generative AI tools do not think and will often include misleading, incorrect, or problematic responses.

Illinois does not control, nor see any of the specific answers and can’t guarantee accuracy from the tools. If you encounter significant unexpected or problematic responses that raise data privacy concerns, please contact If you suspect an AI is compromised or has other credible vulnerability concerns, please contact Your collaboration in maintaining a secure AI environment is integral to our commitment to privacy and data protection.
