Sarahah: Anonymous Messaging App for Youngsters

September 22, 2017

Developed by Saudi developer ZainAlabdin Tawfiq, Sarahah app craze is continuing unabated. From teenagers to youngsters everyone seems to be hooked to it. Though the app is gaining the popularity worldwide simply because it lets you send anonymous messages to people, the idea behind developing the app is to provide a platform where one can provide constructive feedback to his/her colleagues and friends without revealing his/her identity.

 

How it works:

 

Download the app, set up a user account and then share your Sarahah ID (it usually reads xyz.sarahah.com) on your social media accounts, for example, Facebook, Twitter, or WhatsApp. Anyone who knows your Sarahah ID can send you messages anonymously. There is no option to reply back to the sender, as of now. Nevertheless, you can share the messages received by you on your social media handles for some fun. In case you receive an offensive message, you have an option to block that sender and report the message.

 

Anonymity promised! Really? 

 

Though the team behind the Sarahah app claims that there is no possibility of the identities of senders getting exposed and websites like sarahahexposed.com are scams, we can’t ignore the fact that the Sarahah’s founder recently gave a hint to a leading publication that they could reveal the identity of a user if he/she doesn’t follow the set rules and regulations of the app and misuses its anonymous nature.

 

Moreover, while going through the FAQs at www.sarahah.com, we came across the following two questions:

 

Q1. Will Sarahah show the identity of senders?

 

Sarahah won’t disclose the identity of the logged-in senders to users except with their consent.

 

Q2. Is Sarahah a hacker?

 

Sarahah doesn’t steal data, but websites and apps impersonating Sarahah could do that.

 

So, download the Sarahah app and send messages anonymously at your own risk. Tip: Use this app only to provide constructive feedback to your friends and known ones. Don’t use it for cyberbullying or blackmailing purposes.

 

Are you missing out on something if not using Sarahah?

 

Absolutely not. If you’re not interested in sharing anonymous messages received by you on your social media accounts, then this app is no fun. In my opinion, the app may lose its shine within days just like Secret, and Whisper (the apps which once got popular in the year 2014, all because of their anonymous nature).
