How to Bypass TurnItIn AI Detection & Humanize ChatGPT

ChatGPT is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. But with its popularity came a bunch of issues, like deciphering AI-generated writing from human writing. It's also expanded into education, with tools like TurnItIn sometimes even falsely flagging students when they haven't used AI. Here's some good ways of rearranging your writing to avoid TurnItIn's AI detector

Using tools or methods to bypass plagiarism or originality checks such as TurnItIn can have serious academic consequences and is against the values of academic integrity. Please don't cheat! 🚨

One of the biggest issues since the release of ChatGPT has been society questioning the differences between AI vs human writing, I mean how do you even check if something was written with AI?

This even became even more of a concern especially in regard to academic content.

Educational institutions and content creators have been compelled to rely on sophisticated tools such as TurnItIn to detect AI-generated content, but there are so many false positives it's scary.

Consequently, people who use ChatGPT for legitimate purposes, such as preliminary drafts or idea generation, have faced issues of false AI detection.

Over the next few minutes we'll talk about how to avoid false AI detection when using ChatGPT to complete your writing drafts or essays. Some students have turned to having to use writing humanizer tools like Undetectable AI just for the sake of avoiding being falsely flagged.

It's important to understand that avoiding AI detection is not synonymous with deception, but rather ensuring that the content is reflective of genuine human intellect and creativity.

If you can avoid these tools with such ease, are they even really accurate? Should schools be relying on AI writing detection tools without even knowing how they work?

Here's a few tools you can use to help avoid TurnItIn AI detection by rewriting your writing to make it appear more human-like:

1) Use Undetectable.AI

One of the best ways to change your writing in a matter of seconds is to use Undetectable AI. You simply enter your writing into the box, select any options you want customized, and sit back & let it do the work for you. Most articles get rewritten in about 20-60 seconds. Here's how it works:

I took some ChatGPT text from an essay I had it create and put it directly into Undetectable. This one took about 15 seconds to make (I did only use the first paragraph though) and you'll be on your way.

Make sure to read these results though. Sometimes the scrambling/paraphrasing of the words make it a little funky. You can customize further details to change the output you get from UD:

You can change the readability & purpose levels to really adapt to what you're looking for. If you want it to rephrase your content that reads well for a university essay, you can do it. You can also change the readability for marketing products. There's so many options to tweak things.

The bottom has 3 options showing you the spectrum of readable to human content. If you make it more readable, it will make a lot more sense [to read] but has a higher chance of getting picked up in detectors. If you set it to more human, you'll almost certainly bypass AI detectors, but might have some funky formatting in the sentences. Isn't it kind of a weird paradox we're getting into...?

We have a full review on Undetectable if you want to learn about the intricacies of how it works & what you could get out of it, but this is definitely the best start.

2) Hide It & Paraphrase With HideMyAI

I am particularly fond of HideMyAI due to how many options you can change and customize. In the span of mere seconds, you'll turn AI-generated content into human writing.

The tool currently offers English, Spanish, Russian, and French. It's only a glimpse of what's to come, as more languages are anticipated to be added in the near future. You'll get 250 credits just when visiting the website, and an additional 300 words if you create a free account.

3) Paraphrase with QuillBot

The second thing you could do is paraphrase your sentences with QuillBot. You could do this either after you run the writing through Undetectable or right after you use ChatGPT.

It's not as perfect but it also gives you 100% customization to change your writing because it lets you swap out synonyms and sentence structures. Check this out:

You can click on the orange, blue, or really any sentences and you'll get a box that lets you swap out sentences. Just make sure what you're changing actually makes sense..!

I've noticed QuillBot can be really good for short-form content, but after a while (especially on longer essays) it really just tries to change everything and completely funks out the entire paper. Just be leery of this.

After you're done revising, you can save or copy the new text and put it into wherever you were originally editing. QuillBot is pretty awesome!

4) Actually Revise Your Writing

I know this one sounds obvious, but actually revising the ChatGPT output can do wonders. While most of the AI detection software is able to tell when you change a few words here or there, you can really just use ChatGPT as a blueprint to write what you actually want to talk about.

While it's not always the most factually accurate, I've realized how great of an outline/planner it is for drafting headline, subsections, and paragraph topics. This kind of works as a middle ground to avoid TurnItIn, but you're able to get insight from ChatGPT while still expanding on everything yourself.

There's nothing better than using ChatGPT in the way it was meant – to supplement your life. Many of us (myself included) often try to just create articles or essays with it and it just doesn't work that well. Unless you really figure out how to fine tune the article, you'll be left with something so "perfect" it doesn't make sense at all.

5) NetusAI

Similar to the other tools, Netus has two rewriting tools that directly claim to help bypass TurnItIn. Paste your text, select the version of the bypasser that you want to use, and submit your text to be rewritten. It doesn't seem to work as well (or in-depth) as Undetectable and HideMyAI, but it's nice to know they claim to help get around TurnItIn.

Final Thoughts

While I don't necessarily agree with what all of these AI detection companies are doing, I get their point. While you shouldn't be using ChatGPT to do anything illegal or unethical, it's totally possible to get around TurnItIn and other AI writing detection tools by just rewriting & paraphrasing your content.

It's really only a matter of time until these detection tools get better, AI bypassing tools adapt, and the circle continues until people realize this is unsustainable.

We already released the beast of AI into the world with ChatGPT and it's basically impossible to turn back now. We're in for a very interesting next few years... especially with the disruption of education that's pretty rapidly approaching. Let me know your thoughts below!
