Sarahah is going viral all over the world for a simple reason it promises the users to tell each other what they think about them, this app is available in two languages English and Arabic for iOS and Android Users.
Earlier, it was positioned as a workplace tool but it is growing rapidly and increasing popularity among youngsters of all over the world. It goes viral on Social Media, and everyone was talking about sarahah and posting the random anonymous messages on his or her News Feed.
What is Sarahah App?
So, according to Sarahah App description on Google Play Store.
“Sarahah helps people self-develop by receiving constructive anonymous feedback,”
To get honest feedback from your coworkers and friends.
- Enhance your areas of strength
- Strengthen Areas for Improvement
With Your Friends
- Improve your friendship by discovering your strengths and areas for improvement
- Let your friends be honest with you
Sarahah let you send messages anonymously to any people without any fear because it does not show identity and nobody can think who sends the messages. This app was created to help people and community to improve themselves based on the other people’s feedback.
The Messages sent to anyone on the network are completely encrypted and kept them private, and the recipient can choose to reply, flag, delete or favourite them without the sender knowing.
How to use Sarahah App?
First, you have to download the App from Google Play Store like any other app, and then you have to create an account to use sarahah.
You just need to put in your username, name, email id and enter a password, then check on Terms & Conditons. This app does not require your mobile number to sign up via OTP verification.
Once you set up an account and logged in, you will get a Sarahah messaging link (like this xyz.sarahah.com), you have to share this link with your friends, or on Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp or you can copy the link and post it to different social network platforms.
Anyone who has your Sarahah messaging link will be able to send you messages; they can be your friends, relatives, life partners and even strangers who are on this app or those who have not any account on sarahah.
For sending a message, a user has to click on the link, which will open a text box with this message, “Leave a constructive message.” then you just type a message and hit send. When the other user receives the message, they just get the message and don’t know who sent this particular message to him.
Well, Sarahah is not a regular messaging app, it always sending random anonymous messages to the people. There are limited tabs in the sarahah app Messages, Search, Explore and Profile. Messages tab shows all received, sent and favourite messages. When you receive a message you can favourite that message or you can block that user or even can report it.
The “Favourite” tab shows the messages which you have tapped the heart symbol. The “Sent” tab shows you all the ‘constructive’ messages you have sent to others. Where “Search” tab lets you search for people to send them messages anonymously.
“Explore” tab is running in beta testing mode and soon this feature will be available in the next update, but we are not 100% percent sure, who knows what are the plans of sarahah developers.
