> Force a developer to modify the app

Most app developers are not under Australian jurisdictions. Especially
so for app developers who specialize in dark-web comms.

With 20+ million programmers out there, it's not that hard to find
someone to develop an app that is immune to Australian government
influence. It doesn't even need to be very good so it's hardly an
elite programming activity.

For an additional fee they will probably install the app on a burner
phone and ship it to you direct. Heck, it's probably not even illegal
to run this as a business in a large number of other jurisdictions so
it's strictly a business proposition responding to a new market
created by this legislation.
