What are the limitations of the free plans?

In the free plan, chat history will not be saved. You will be present with a popup every few minutes. Some other features may also be limited.

Do I need to pay for OpenAI?

Yes. You need to have an OpenAI account and a valid API key to use ChatGPT. We don't sell API keys.

Do I need to pay for ChatGPT Plus ($20/month) to use TypingMind.com?

No! A ChatGPT Plus subscription is not needed. You just need to have an OpenAI's API Key. You can see more info on how to get one here: https://openai.com/blog/openai-api

What's the difference between ChatGPT Plus and ChatGPT API via TypingMind?

Under the hood, ChatGPT Plus and ChatGPT API offer the same model and the same quality. You can view this on their official announcement here: https://platform.openai.com/docs/guides/chat.
The initial system instruction can be a little bit different, which can be configured to make the AI output different messages from time to time.

I have ChatGPT Plus, will it cost me more to use ChatGPT API via TypingMind?

The ChatGPT API costs soooooo little you won't even notice it.
Typical chat conversation is about 1000 characters, which costs ~$0.001. That's less than a cent. You can have thousands of chats and it will only costs you like $1. See official pricing here: https://openai.com/pricing#language-models

How do I get support?

You can send an email to support@typingmind.com
Expected response time: 2-3 business days

⚙️ Account & Setup

How to get the OpenAI API Key?

Follow these steps to get the API key:
  1. Signup directly with OpenAI at https://platform.openai.com/signup (if you already have an account, you can skip this step)
  1. Go to Profile > View API Keys
  1. Create a secret key. Then copy the key to fill out in the TypingMind app.

How is the API key handled?

Your API is safe and stored locally on your device. This is a static app, which means that it doesn't have a backend. All the data is stored in your browser's local storage. Requests to Open AI's API is sent directly from your current browser (check the Network tab in your console if you want to see it).

How many devices can I use when purchasing TypingMind?

Each license key can be used on 5 devices which is typically enough for 1 user. If you need to use it on for more devices, you can buy a new license keys or add more devices to your existing license key.
To be more specific, "Device" is counted based on the number of places where the license key is entered and the chat history is saved for continuous use. For example, if you use Typing Mind on Chrome browser on your laptop and also on your phone, that will be 2 devices.
Note that the license key and chat history is saved locally per browser, so if you use Typing Mind on Chrome and also on Firefox, you will need to enter the license key 2 times, have 2 separate chat histories, and that counts as 2 devices. If you need to use the license key on a new device but have reached the device limit, you can unlink the previous devices first using the License Manager (this is done online, access to the previous devices not needed). This device limit is put in place to avoid license key abuse and pirate.

Go to App Settings (the gear icon in the sidebar) > scroll down to All data section > click Import From OpenAI

How to set up my profile picture?

Just simply go to TypingMind, click to your profile picture and leave an image URL to set up your profile picture.

I lost all my chat history. How to recover?

Your data is typically saved only on your local device storage and not backed up unless you have enabled TypingMind cloud for backup. So if you have not enabled cloud sync before, we would not be able to help you retrieve lost data.
However, if you have enabled cloud backup, you can easily recover your lost data by navigating to the "Recover lost data" option in the App Settings.

Will my chats be saved across devices?

No, all your chats are saved locally per browser. So if you use Typing Mind on Chrome and also on Firefox, you will need to enter the license key 2 times, have 2 separate chat histories, and that counts as 2 devices.
If you need to use the license key on a new device but have reached the device limit, you can unlink the previous devices first using the License Manager (License Manager is upcoming feature, now this is done automatically after a short time so access to the previous devices not needed). This device limit is put in place to avoid license key abuse and pirate.

🗝️ License Manager

I have purchased but forgot my license key, how can I get it back?

Click to the cost as in the image to switch the display options between cost estimation and context length.
View cost estimation
View cost estimation

What is token? How does it work?

  • Token is the total length of your current conversation. It is calculated by OpenAI's API when you send a message.
  • When you reach a certain length, you cannot add any more messages to the chat. This is the context length limit of the OpenAI's API.
  • GPT-3.5 allows maximum of 4,096 tokens per chat. GPT-4 allows maximum of 8,192 tokens per chat in the 8K model and 32,768 tokens in the 32K model. OpenAI may increase the context length limit in the future.
  • Some enhanced features on TypingMind will increase your token usage. You can always turn these features off in the Settings panel (click the gear icon in the sidebar). The enhanced features include: Chat Title Suggestion, Search Keywords Suggestions, AI Characters, Upload Document, etc. Amount of tokens used depends on the AI character and the length of your document.
  • If you reached the context length limit, you can delete some old messages to continue the chat, or start a new chat.

How’s the cost calculated?

  • Cost associated with a chat includes the token cost for the chat messages AND all of the enhanced features used for that chat.
  • Some enhanced features on TypingMind will increase your token usage. You can always turn these features off in the Settings panel (click the gear icon in the sidebar). The enhanced features include: Chat Title Suggestion, Search Keywords Suggestions, AI Characters, Upload Document, etc. Amount of tokens used depends on the AI character and the length of your document.
  • All costs are estimated, please refer to your OpenAI dashboard for the most accurate cost of your API key.
  • The cost is calculated based on the public pricing of OpenAI's API. Each model has its own pricing, each type of tokens in each model also has its own pricing.
  • Token usages are not recorded when streaming response is enabled. We will work on improving this soon.

🔍 Web search

How Web Search works?

When you enable Web Search, TypingMind will add a short instruction to the OpenAI model to teach the model how to perform a search query using the selected search engine (which is Google by default). The model will then attempt to run a search command only when necessary and use the search result to answer your question.

How to enable Web Search?

The web search toggle will be appeared when you initiate a new chat. Please follow the instruction in this article to set it up:
🔘Use Web search and Image search

How can the search feature benefit me?

Here are some possible use cases where the web search feature can benefit you such as checking how reliable of your information is with reliable resources on the internet, staying up-to-date with the latest trends, or finding resources / references for a particular topic.
Those are just the typical use cases for Search feature, you can explore yourself for more amazing use cases.

How does TypingMind execute the search?

TypingMind will use the search engine's API to execute the search query. The search requests are sent directly from your browser to the search API without any intermediate servers. Your privacy is 100% protected. No one can see your search query and search result except you and the search engine itself.

What search engines are supported?

TypingMind currently only supports Google search engine. We will add more search engines in the future

What are the limits? How many searches can I do?

The default free plan of Programmable Search Engine includes 100 searches per day for free. If you need more, you may sign up for billing in the Google API Console. https://cloud.google.com/billing/docs/how-to/manage-billing-account

Does Web Search require GPT-4? Can I use it with GPT-3.5?

Web Search is best used with GPT-4 because it has a larger context length and can store more search results and can pull out information from search result more reliably. However, you can still Web Search with GPT-3.5 without problems (most of the time).

How much more tokens are used if I enable Web Search?

The base instructions for Web Search contains ~600 tokens. The search result will be added to the context and will be used to answer your question. The more search results you get, the more tokens will be used. The average number of tokens used for Web Search is ~800 tokens.

📢 Text to speech

How to enable text-to-speech feature?

There are 2 options to use text-to-speech: Web Speech and ElevenLabs. Please follow the instruction in this article to enable it:
🔘Set up Text-to-speech

How to get API Key from ElevenLabs?

🏠 Self-host

Can I self-host TypingMind?

Yes. After you make a purchase, you will receive a instruction on how to deploy it on your own server.
You can download the self-host files at Self-host Packages. Our team will update the latest versions so don’t forget to check out the link more often.
Note that you will only receive the compiled code of the app, the full source code is not available because the app is not open-source. You can deploy the app anywhere without having to update any code or settings.

What is self-hosting?

Self-host means you deploy the same version of TypingMind.com on your own web hosting server and custom domain name for your personal use.

Why self-hosting? What are the benefits?

Some people prefer to run the software on their own server for privacy and availability reasons. For example, if TypingMind.com becomes inaccessible in the future, you can still access your own version of TypingMind from your server without any problem. The self-host version can also be run locally like an app.

Where can I deploy my self-host version?

Anywhere! You can deploy it on your own server, or on a static web cloud service like GitHub Pages, Cloudflare Pages, AWS S3, Vercel, Netlify, Heroku, etc. You can even run it on localhost.

How to self-host TypingMind?

Now you can deploy the same version of TypingMind.com on your own web hosting server and domain name for your personal use. Please follow the instructions in the article:
🔘Set up self-host

What can I customize in the self-host version?

As of now, you cannot customize anything. You the self-host version will be exactly the same as the one you are using on TypingMind.com. I'm working on making it possible to set custom UI and branding soon. Stay tuned!

Why my self-host app doesn’t reflect the latest version?

The self-host version will be updated later than the static web app. Make sure to check out the latest self-host package here.

How do I receive updates for the self-host version?

As of now, you will have to manually download the latest version from the website and redeploy your app. New versions can be found as an attachment here 👇
📦Self-host Package & Updates

Do I have access to the full source code if I want to self-host?

No. The license key only grants you the permission to use and deploy the app on your own server. You do not have permissions to modify or redistribute the code.
The full source code is not available for sale as the app is not open-source. You will only receive the compiled code of the app, you can deploy the app anywhere without having to update any code or settings.

Am I eligible to sell my self-host white label?

No, you’re not allowed to do so.

Do I still need a License Key and Open API Key to use the self-hosted version?

Yes. Both are needed, as the self-hosted version is exactly the same as the version you see on TypingMind.com. The License Key is needed in the self-host version. When you enter the license key, the app will connect to TypingMind's license server to verify your license.

Can I let my team/community/customers use the self-host version?

You can, but keep in mind that they will also need a TypingMind License Key and OpenAI API Key in order to use it.

Can I embed my License Key/API key to the self-host version somehow and let my team/community/customers use it?

No you can't, and you shouldn't. It's not safe to share your License Key and API Key to the public like that. The Static App Self-host version is meant for personal use. If you are looking to setup a custom deployment of TypingMind for your team/community/customers, please check out https://typingmind.com/custom

Can I have support on technical issues if I self-host?

The self-host version comes for free when you buy a license key. There is no support on technical issues if you self-host. If you don't have the technical skills to setup the self-host version, we recommend using the hosted version on https://typingmind.com instead.
You can also checkout the Custom Deployment for easier setup with custom branding and manage team member: https://typingmind.com/custom (available as a separate purchase)

Why don't you offer technical support for the self-hosted version?

There are way too many possible technical issues that could happen with various tech stacks and server configurations that are not in my control. That's why I cannot offer technical support if you have problem with your self-hosted version.

What permissions do I have with the self-host code?

  • ✅ You have access to the compiled code of the app.
  • ✅ You have permission to deploy and use the compiled code on your own server.
  • ❌ You do not have permissions to modify or redistribute the compiled code.
  • ❌ You do not have permissions to share or resell the compiled code.

What's the different between TypingMind Custom, Self-host static app, and the Custom Branding?

The main different is that in the TypingMind Custom, your users don't need to enter an OpenAI API Key and License Key, their chats will use your API key and you will pay for your users' usage.
In the self-host static app (and the custom branding add-on), you simply host a 1:1 copy of TypingMind, and your users still have to buy/enter a License Key on their own.

What is a "Chat instance" or an "instance"?

A "Chat instance" or an "instance" is a chat interface you created when sign up for a Custom Deployment on TypingMind. You can create multiple chat instances for multiple purposes. Each Chat instance is tied to one OpenAI key and run on one domain.

How to train the chat interface with my own data?

Use the "Model & Training" page in the admin panel to train the AI chat with your data. The training is done by providing the chatbot with an initial system instruction, where you will put all relevant data to give the chatbot a context. More examples on how to train the chatbot is available in the "Model & Training" page in the admin panel

Can I train the model with my own data from PDF, DOCX, internal docs, etc.?

Yes. Training the model with your own data is currently done via the default system prompt with text input.

How large is the data we can train the model with?

Training is currently made possible via the system instruction prompt. So the amount of data you can train depends on the context length of the model you have access to. GPT-3.5 has 4,096 tokens context length, GPT-4 has up to 32K tokens of context length. Keep in mind that you'll have to pay for your own OpenAI API usage, the more token used, the more costly it will get. In the future, we will look into utilizing ChatGPT Plugins to enable even more training data and knowledge-base based Q&A.

Can I track which users use the most token from my OpenAI API key?

Yes, but not yet. We're working on this and will be available soon. Stay tuned!

Can my users use ChatGPT Plugins in the chat instance?

📔Setup Custom Email Sender via SMTP

I already have the self-host static app. Can I use it with my Custom Deployment?

No, the self-host static app that comes for free when you buy a license is not intended to be used by team.

Your API Key will be encrypted using the AES algorithm provided by the open-source CryptoJS library (https://github.com/brix/crypto-js).
