A month ago, a Saudi Arabia developer ZainAlabdin Tawfiq introduced the world to an anonymous messaging app named sarahah which allows you to send messages to anyone you want without the recipient knowing who the sender is. Sarahah app’s craze is continuing unabated. From teens to youngsters everyone seems to be hooked to it. The app is reportedly among the most downloaded apps both on Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store. After some early success, a few cases of cyber bullying and hateful messages were reported from all over the world.
Sarahah’s anonymous nature is under the scanner. Some reports making rounds on the internet claim that the app may reveal everyone’s secret identity. Ever since such reports started to appear on the web, people are scared. They are looking forward to somehow delete their Sarahah account and remove all data or messages that they have sent out to others. But, sadly, something that has gone out on the internet once can never be removed.
Sarahah is not end-to-end encrypted like WhatsApp. This means messages sent out via WhatsApp will never be revealed at any given cost. Well, the scene isn’t the same with it.
Sarahah will reveal the message sender’s identity only if you don’t follow the terms and condition of the application. This is not a baseless assumption. The app creator himself confirmed this.
Sarahah users who are using the app just for fun and casual confessions, can go ahead and use the app with no fear. However, if you’re misusing the app, you should really think before doing it the next time, or be ready to face strict consequences.
