Australia Wide Chat Room Counselling Service - Security
August, 2007 the Chat Room software supplied by Parachat was
upgraded to their Professional version which allowed greater
security to be implemented.
Whilst the Chat Room Counselling security has never been breached,
upgrades were considered necessary in this computer literate age.
When a client enters the Chat Room at the advertised times, shown on
the Chat Room page, they should see one of the following names.
counsellor1, counsellor2 etc through to
These are registered password protected names used by our qualified counsellors. Any other name not spelt exactly as above is NOT a
counsellor. Clients should exit the Chat Room and try again
Misspelt counsellor login names are also blocked to prevent
mimicking of counsellors true login names.
Client names, which should be 'made-up-names', are not blocked and
a Password will not be requested.
When a counsellor replies he/she will implement a PRIVATE
conversation which cannot be seen by anyone else no matter how many
others enter the Chat Room.
All security measures for the Chat Room have
now been implemented.
