ChatGPT inexplicably gave out a journalist's phone number after a user asked it if it was possible to use the tool on the messaging app Signal.

FT writer Dave Lee shared a screenshot on Twitter of another ChatGPT user conversation with the bot which somehow wound up using his phone number.

Lee wrote on Twitter: "Someone asked ChatGPT if it had a Signal... and it gave him *MY NUMBER*."

In the screenshot, the bot is asked if it also works with Signal. In response, the bot confirms that this is possible by listing a number of steps the user needs to take to begin integrating the two apps.
