Sarahah app has been gaining ground since over the past week, joining trends such as Prisma app that rose quickly in public consciousness. Whether it will remain a hit or fade away in a few weeks is anybody’s guess, but for now Sarahah app is something difficult to avoid seeing in your Facebook news feed. Of course, everyone is wondering how to find out who sent the Sarahah messages to them. If you have similar questions about the app, or are just wondering what makes it so popular on social media these days, we have all the answers you need below.
Sarahah app – how it works
The idea is simple – you create a Sarahah profile, which anyone can visit. Even without logging in, people can visit your profile and leave messages, anonymously. If they have logged in, messages are still anonymous by default, but users can choose to tag their identity. On the receivers app, all the incoming messages show up in an inbox, and you can flag messages, delete them, reply, or favourite them to find them easily later.
You would be surprised to learn that the Sarahah app is actually a few months old, and has already been a hit in regions such as Egypt and Saudi Arabia, according to a BBC report. But although the app has become very popular, it’s quite polarising. For instance, although it has (at the time of writing) 10,305 5-star reviews on Google Play, it’s also got 9,652 1-star reviews, showing a near 50-50 split in opinion. The creators described it by saying: Sarahah helps people self-develop by receiving constructive anonymous feedback.
That’s at least in part because of fact that anonymity enables people to act out and behave in hurtful ways without consideration for consequences. Even positive reviews on the App Store still warn that this app is not for the weak hearted. Another 5-star review mentions that people are getting a lot of hateful comments.
