Sarahah app is meant for sending and receiving feedback from others anonymously. The app has been gaining ground since its inception and still, it shows no sign of slowing down in popularity. It is on the top of App Store apps in over 30 countries. This looks good on paper, but in practice turns out to a case of too-good-to-be-true. That’s why we’ve come up with the Sarahah app review to make you familiar with all the ins and outs of the app. Let’s begin:
Sarahah App Review
Let’s put the light on our Sarahah app review with its overview. In Arabic language, Sarahah means honesty. As its name suggests, Sarahah is intended for getting ‘honest feedback from your friends and co-workers’. Developed by the Saudi developer, ZainAlabdin Tawfiq, it lets you send and receive anonymous comments.
Installation and Registration
You can sign up for the app either on the official website sarahah.com or download the app from Google Play Store or App Store. Once done, set up an account by entering your details such as name, username, password, and email. The anonymous commenting tool doesn’t require your mobile number.
Once logged in, you can share your Sarahah link on Facebook, WhatsApp, Snapchat, Twitter, and other social platforms. Anyone who has the link can send you messages. The sender knows the identity of the receiver, but the receiver will never know whom the message came from.
Sending a Message
The next point we’re going to discuss in our Sarahah app review is how to send a message. To send a message, go to the message box on Sarahah app prompting you to ‘leave a constructive message’ followed by a smiling emoji. Simply write your message and tap on the Send button. You can send only text messages – no graphics, nothing else.
The receiver can like the message by tapping on the heart button. Plus, he/she can block the sender if the message received by him/her is a spam. However, Sarahah anonymous messaging app doesn’t offer any option to respond to the received messages.
Tabs in Sarahah app
You can see all your sent, received, and favorite messages in the Messages tab. When you get a message, you can favorite it or block the sender. The app includes a Favorite tab that shows messages on which you have tapped the heart symbol. The Sent tab shows all the messages you have sent to others while the Search tab allows you to search for people to send them anonymous messages.
Overall, our Sarahah app review indicates that it’s nice app and has managed to rule almost every social platform, be it Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Snapchat. The ability to send and receive message anonymously is something that is attracting all the eyeballs. However, bullying is the one biggest issue that often crops up with anonymous messaging apps. Although the app is very trendy at the moment, we’ve seen other secrecy based platforms buzz up and then fizzle out too.
Some users have praised the app for its new concept and fun, but at the same time, others have blamed it for propagating online hate. Whatever might be the true case, Sarahah has definitely taken the Internet by storm and it would be fascinating to see its future growth.
