Chatwithpdf is a user-friendly ChatGPT plugin that streamlines the interaction with PDF documents. Users can effortlessly load PDFs by providing a temporary URL, allowing them to query, analyze, and ask questions based on the content. The tool's standout feature is its semantic search, which efficiently matches user queries with relevant information extracted from the processed PDFs. Adding Chatwithpdf as an unverified plugin in the ChatGPT UI's "Plugin Store" is all it takes to access this web-based tool, eliminating the need for installation. User privacy is prioritized, as the tool doesn't store data permanently, and PDFs are embedded and wiped clean with each deployment. In conclusion, Chatwithpdf offers a seamless and secure solution for extracting essential information from PDFs, ensuring a smooth user experience.

How it works:
Users submit a publicly accessible PDF URL for loading and processing, ensuring accessibility even in private browsing modes such as Incognito. The plugin then downloads and analyzes the PDF document, extracting pertinent information. User inquiries are subsequently compared with the processed data from the PDF, and the most relevant matches are retrieved and presented to the user.
ChatWithPDF ensures that no data is intentionally stored permanently. All PDFs are promptly embedded and erased. Embeddings are saved temporarily with ChromaDB on the deployment server and are wiped clean with each new deployment. Typically, manual purging of embeddings occurs every 12-24 hours due to limitations in our vector database, which is necessary to address size and memory constraints. In the future, all embeddings will be automatically deleted one hour after the user requests them. It's worth noting that if someone has your link, they can fetch embeddings from it, as it is cached in our vector database. However, users cannot discern the searches or embeddings of other users.
