What is Sarahah App?
Sarahah is an app that allows users to send and receive messages without revealing their name. App makers say that the feedback received by people for creative unknown messages through the Sarahah app helps in self-development. Sarahah is an Arabic word which means ‘honesty’.
Using this app is very easy. Users have to create their appreciated profile which can be viewed by anyone. Even without login any user can visit your profile and leave message for you as a stranger. By default, the sender’s name is not displayed even if the front user is logged in. But users can choose to reveal their identity.
On the app of the user who received the message, all incoming messages appear in the inbox. And you can flag, delete, reply to, and mark those messages as favorites to find them later easily. to the app Google Play And app Store You can download it for free from . Apart from this, an account can also be created on the website.
Although, this app is becoming extremely popular but it also has a different side. For example, at the time of writing this article on Google Play, the app has received 10,305 5-star reviews but has also received 9,652 1-star reviews. From which it seems that the opinion of people about this app is divided 50-50 percent.
And perhaps this is also because there is a risk of harm from the messages sent from the app without revealing identity. The many positive reviews on the App Store also warn that this app is not for the faint of heart. At the same time, in another 5-star review, it has been told that people are also getting many hate messages.
Now, the developers of the app are also making several improvements to improve the user experience. There are many privacy features in the app – like removing your profile from search results, who can share your profile and you can also prevent unauthorized users from accessing your profile. In addition, you can block the person who sent the message, so even if you do not know the name of a user, they will not be able to send you a message again.
However, the longer we used the app, we found it to be a decent experience. There is only one objective in mind when you are using it and you can send instant messages. The interface of the app could have been improved, but the design of the app is fine for the kind of work it does.
Let us tell you that this is not the first app in which you can send messages to anyone without naming them. There are other popular apps like Yik Yak, Secret, and Whisper that are also used for anonymous messaging. Where these messages are more social and there is more communication between people. While Sarahah’s main focus is on messaging and less on social media. So visiting other user’s profile will give you nothing if they haven’t made their posts public.
At present, the Sarahah app has become a rage in India and people are sharing the message fiercely on Facebook, Twitter. But we’ve also seen other anonymizing platforms, Buzz Up and Fizzle. But there are some big differences in Sarahah but it is too early to say how long this app will be able to maintain its popularity.
