The app was launched in June and it has taking the internet by storm recently: It is now the fourth top trending application in the Apple app store. The Sarahah app is been created to allow users send and receive anonymous feedback from others.

In the words of Sarahah itself: "Sarahah helps you in discovering your strengths and areas for improvement by receiving honest feedback from your employees and your friends in a private manner". If it's any consolation, the app's FAQs page assures users that "Sarahah won't disclose the identity of the logged-in senders to users except with their consent" and "Sarahah doesn't steal data but websites and apps impersonating Sarahah could do that".

Go to the message box on Sarahah app which prompts the user to "leave a constructive message" followed by a smiling emoji. The application is especially popular among teens who oftentimes share their messages on more public forms of social media, whether they be good or bad. You will only require a smartphone, iOS, Windows Phone or Android to use the app. Moreover, users can also flag messages or mark them as favorite to #Enable them to locate the messages easily in future. It also has a search option which can be used to look for users.

Since its release in June, the app has reportedly been downloaded 5 million times on Google Play and Apple's App Store. Here's where the anonymity of Sarahah becomes not so fun: people can sometimes be mean. Anyone can send a review or a thing one wanted to say to anyone without being anxious about consequences. Just like its name suggests, Sarahah is created to get "honest feedback from your friends and co-workers". Don't mistake the reply button for actually replying to the person, who sent you the message. Well there's an app that will let you deliver some criticism constructively.

The Google Play Store description reads "Sarahah helps people self-develop by receiving constructive anonymous feedback". You can not reply to any messages and have a conversation.

In the reviews, parents are warning their children to avoid using the app.

Further you can go in the settings and disable the option to "Appear in search". One shows all the received messages, while the other two show you messages that you have marked as Favourite and those which you have sent.

First and foremost, you would want to install app. Reply, for some weird reason, lets you forward a message to friends via social media platforms such as Facebook, Messenger, Snapchat, WhatsApp, and more. There's now no option to reply to comments, but the developers behind Sarahah are considering making this an option.
