Sarahah: All you want to know about internet's new love

Sarahah: All you want to know about internet's new love

You can then, share your "Sarahah" profile on any of the social media platform so that you can inform your friends that you are on the messaging app.

Sarahah was created by a developer from Saudi Arabia called ZainAlabdin Tawfiq as a way for people to share honest thoughts. Messages once sent on the app cannot be retrieved, and the only advice users can get at this point is to be kind and constructive even if the app is letting you stay anonymous for now.

Sarahah app helps you to discover your strengths and areas for improvement by receiving honest feedback from your employees and your friends in a private manner.

The website was a big hit in countries like Lebanon, Tunisia and Egypt, prompting Tawfiq to design an app for Sarahah, which launched in June this year. The problem with the app is that once you have signed up, all you end up seeing is a Facebook feed full of Sarahah messages. Once someone has that link, they can send anonymous messages about anything. You will only require a smartphone, iOS, Windows Phone or Android to use the app. When you receive a message you can favourite it or block the user. The app is expected to refresh with new features within the next few days since we saw a message similar to that during navigation. It also has a search option which can be used to look for users.

It is free to download and like most social media apps asks users to create a profile with a username, email ID and a password to keep communications secure. But of course, the risk is that people will quickly start sending hateful texts to their friends, acquaintances and that's already happening with Sarahah.

While it seems like an app for some anonymous fun with friends, but there are also chances of many misusing it.

So how does Sarahah app work? One section shows received messages while the other two are for marked and sent messages. Well there's an app that will let you deliver some criticism constructively. Next up, there's an "Explore" tab which isn't live yet.

The Google Play Store description reads "Sarahah helps people self-develop by receiving constructive anonymous feedback".

Finally, let us point out some of the important terms and conditions, which most of us tend to ignore and accept before registering.

First and foremost, you would want to install app. Unfortunately, you won't be able to reply so you will be at the mercy of the person of the sender.

And this has been the USP of the Sarahah app.

Where Sarahah's privacy policy goes, the company says they won't disclose the identity of the logged-in senders to users, except with their consent.

Sarahah offers limited setting options as of now.

So should you be using Sarahah?
