Anonymous app Sarahah goes viral amid bullying concerns

Anonymous app Sarahah goes viral amid bullying concerns”

The app was originated by Saudi Arabian developer Zain al-Abidin Tawfiq to give anonymous feedback to bosses without worrying about the consequences.

The app allows its users to send anonymous messages to others who have installed this app. The company believes that getting this honest feedback will help your friendship by finding areas for improvement.

This is, in-fact, an app available for download on both Android and iOS platforms, though the history it unfolds is a little short. The messaging app that primarily focuses on privacy, was developed and introduced by Saudi Arabia-based ZainAlabdin Tawfiq back in June. Users can also look up people they know if they have the username in a search section of the app. Here's where the anonymity of Sarahah becomes not so fun: people can sometimes be mean. In the past, we have seen apps such as Yik Yak, Whisper, Connected2, and Secret that are identical to that of the Sarahah app.

On the receivers app, all the incoming messages show up in an inbox, and you can flag messages, delete them, reply, or favourite them to find them easily later. The premise is simple - you sign up for an account and create a profile, after which people can leave an anonymous message for you that only you can see.

"Sarahah helps people self-develop by receiving constructive anonymous feedback", read Sarahah's description on Google Play Store.

How to use Sarahah app? One shows all the received messages, while the other two show you messages that you have marked as Favourite and those which you have sent. The "Explore" tab in particular is yet to be made live.

Finally, the "Profile" page lets you manage your profile. What sets it apart from a WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger is the one-way interaction where users can leave a message for a friend or a colleague while keeping their identity anonymous.

Further you can go in the settings and disable the option to "Appear in search".

First and foremost, you would want to install app. The big problem is there's no way of knowing who's sent you a message.

Getting your hands on the Sarahah app is not hard at all.

What if the next feature Sarahah developer is planning will allow users to reveal the identity of the sender. Several reviews on Apple's App Store cite a lot of the bad comments as a reason for giving Sarahah a weak rating. Are you missing out on something if not using Sarahah?
