Sarahah , yes you might have seen various screenshot of sarahah along with links in your snapchat, twitter and facebook. So, what exactly is Sarahah? It is an app, which is created by Saudi programmer Zain al-Abidin Tawfiqand and named it sarahah which means honesty in Arabic. This was created for corporate world where employee can give their feedback to their boss without revealing their names. Now, it is not limited to workplace but the developer has created the app for iPhone and Android. Now, it has been open to public where one can receive and send anonymous feedback to their friends or anyone by clicking on the link.Since, its launch in February it has reached great height and within a week as become popular and bagged top place in the App store.

Sarahah app – How it works?

Without logging in people can visit your sararah profile and leave message anonymously. If they have logged in still they can choose that whether they want to reveal their name or not. However, on the app you will receive all the incoming messages. You will be able to flag, delete, reply or mark them as favorite. You can also share the msgs and screenshots on social media.
The special thing about the app is that you will not know the name of the sender as the app won’t reveal the name of the sender. The Sarahah Exposer and Sarahah Spyer are the websites that is claiming that they can reveal the name of the sender but, they are been proved fake and we recommend stay away from such scams.

Privacy:

Developers are looking ways to improve the experience of the user in terms of privacy. Privacy features include that you can remove your profile from the search results or limiting your audience with whom you want to share your profile with, plus, you can also turn off access for unauthorized users. If some obnoxious message hit your inbox, you can block the sender and that person will not be able to send you any message again.
It is not the first anonymous messaging app however, earlier many apps such as Yik Yak, Secret and Whisper existed which had similar features. These apps were more social and public whereas, Sarahah focus more on messaging and less on social media.
It is highly advisable that you should only download this app if you are strong hearted and open to feedback as some can be hurtful and nasty. Girls if you install this app then you get prone to the bunch of people who will harass you by sending explicit messages. So, far it has been seen as a developing ground for the bullies and haters.
Sararah has reached great popularity among young people well, it is too soon to say how long will it sustain in the app world.
