Sarahah lets its users comment on others anonymously but it doesn't reveal the name and neither does the app allow users to reply to a comment. The popularity of the app could be gathered by the estimated number of downloads from the Apple App Store wherein it became the third most downloaded free software for iPhones and iPad. Created by Saudi Arabian developer Zain al-Abidin Tawfiq, the app is aimed to help people identify their strengths and weaknesses.
In conclusion, for Sarahah users concerned with privacy is that they do not need to download the service app but can use the features like sending messages, register and receiving messages on Sarahah, via a website. Interestingly, the app was doing the same for the devices running on iOS. Users can actually prevent the app from accessing contact data.More news: Swansea City v Manchester United

Asked about Sarahah, Porter added, "I do find it concerning, mostly because the information that the company may be getting could be what other people consider very private, and you don't know the security of the company that is getting it". He stated that the feature was obstructed by "technical issues" and that a partner, who he has stopped working with, was supposed to remove it from the server but "missed that". According to a report from The Intercept, the app uploads users' phone contacts to the company's servers, for no good reason.
