One who hasn't registered on the app can also send texts. Or may be you want to tell somebody how much you admire her/him?

This concept of sending messages to anyone using the app anonymously has been called into question, but it is rising in popularity as it lets users speak their hearts out. However, this option is limited to just the people who have a Sarahah account.

A new messaging app named Sarahah created by Saudi developer ZainAlabdin Tawfiq is taking the internet by storm lately. According to a BBC report, this has over 300 million users already. The app was originated by Saudi Arabian developer Zain al-Abidin Tawfiq to give anonymous feedback to bosses without worrying about the consequences. It allows users to leave anonymous messages on any user's profile. Loosely meaning honesty in Arabic, Sarahah has also raised worries about online bullying.

Sarahah (free for iOS and Android) is an anonymous messaging service originally developed for a very good reason. This app can be used through its website and also through its mobile app.

Fortune.com reported in July last week that Sarahah had rocketed to the top of the charts, becoming the most popular free download from the US iOS App Store, and the second most popular free app on Google Play.

Sarahah won't disclose the identity of the logged-in senders to users except with their consent. This is yet another anonymous app parents need to know about before their kids ask to download it. After installing the application, you will have to register with your name, email address, and password. The app is expected to refresh with new features within the next few days since we saw a message similar to that during navigation. There have been tons of instant messaging apps out there across the globe, including Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram, etc. but this app is on pace to disrupt social media by giving users anonymity to confess their true feelings to others. In the sense, this app won't reveal the receiver as to who actually sent the message. Here's where the anonymity of Sarahah becomes not so fun: people can sometimes be mean.

The person getting the message can see it in the Received section of the app. These options can be found under settings. 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. It allows only texts and no graphics.

Recipients can see the messages in an inbox, delete, flag and favourite them. But, it does not provide any option to respond to those messages. As the trouble of being identified is not there, the user becomes confident in sharing the message.

Will Sarahah show the identity of senders?

With Sarahah, it is possible to send and receive constructive feedback from various people around the world in an anonymous manner.
