The software that manages Australia’s online chat networks, crm, has been upgraded to a newer version.
The move comes after a major trial of the chat software that monitors Australians’ online chats was cancelled after the Australian Government became aware of potential security vulnerabilities.
The trial, run by Australian technology company Quora, saw about 1.2 million people sign up for the service in its first month.
Australian Federal Police chief commissioner Ian Stewart says he is confident the new version of crm will improve the chat service and stop cyber attacks.
“It is an incredibly important piece of software,” he said.
“And I am very confident that we will be able to deliver it on time and within budget.”
Mr Stewart said the company had been in contact with government agencies and the Federal Government to “make sure we can meet the standards that we have”.
“We have been working with the Federal Attorney-General’s Department for some time on this, and we have made the necessary improvements to our software,” Mr Stewart said.
Crm was launched in 2014 by Google, but has since been updated to use the latest version of the software.
In December, Google announced it was cancelling the trial after a number of security vulnerabilities were discovered.
The Federal Government is investing $5 million into the project and has been providing the software to businesses and agencies.
Google has said that it will provide crm software to companies of all sizes and services for free.
Mr Craig said the new software was designed to be more secure.
He said it would also improve privacy and security.
There will be a small number of people in Australia who are not using the chat system, which means that they are not in the program,” he told ABC Radio.
Users will be asked to give the crm service their full name and email address, but Mr Craig said users would be able access it by either setting a password or by sending a “secret” email.
For now, there will be no limits on the number of chat sessions a user can have.
If you’re in the trial, you can also set your own password for the crcm software.
You can also create a custom crm profile and send messages using crm.com, Mr Craig added.
Online services are expected to see a drop in their users as they continue to test and improve the software, he said, but that the new crm was a major step forward.
