We have always been interested to know about ourselves. But such confessions do not always go well and sometimes breaks their thread of relationships. After all, with the launch of Sarahah app developed by Zain al-Abidin Tawfiq from Saudi Arabia, this stint has become simpler that Sarahah allows one user to text anyone on the app and the identity of the confessor won’t be revealed. However, this obscurity may also end up in hateful messages and now; this is what is happening with the app.
What is Sarahah app?
According to Google Play Store,
“Sarahah helps people self-develop by receiving constructive anonymous feedback.”
If you analyze the meaning of Sarahah, it means “honesty” in Arabic language and undoubtedly, this app delivers honesty but anonymously. Android and iOS users can activate the app in two languages –English and Arabic.
How to send a message?
Just click on the link and you can see a text box with message “Leave a constructive message”. Type the confession and press ‘send’. The receiver will only get the message and not the identity of the sender.
The app became quite an instant hit among the audience. It is reported that currently there are more than 300 Million users on Sarahah. It topped the Apple App Store in over 30 nations in the month of July.
Sarahah allows a user to report a text or block the user. However, there’s not much clarity as to what happens when a user does either of these. Hence, it’s very difficult to avoid hate and abusive messages, which makes this app simply perfect when it comes to cyber bullying.
Even though a user can disable “Appear in search” in settings or choose not to get messages from non-registered users, the identity of the sender is impossible to be tracked.
Interestingly, you can’t delete an account on the app. If you wish to remove yourself from the app, the only way is to log into its website version and then delete the account in settings.
Who should use Sarahah?
Sarahah can definitely prove to be a fun app if you take the positively out of it and use it to analyze yourself. However, at the same time, you may feel hurt when someone sends you hateful messages.
