Beware of this app after Killer "Blue Whale"

Using this app sender can send text message to anyone, without revealing his/her identity, this feature can be used for cyber-bullying, mental harassment, blackmailing and destructive criticism by the youngsters. In future it may result into depressions in youngsters which can force them for suicide type of step. I future this "SARAHAH" app will gain to much popularity due to its features. Everyday many people will share massages received by them on social media like facebook, instagram, snapchat etc. But if current generation misuse this app then very soon you will read many complaints about this app in media and social media... Check whether your son or daughter is using this app??? take proper step before it's will be too late......

The Truth

Honestly, my kid got this and she got really positive comments. In any situation, there always be little bit of negativity and she got a few dumb comments that have actually made her more confident. If your kid is mature, I don't see any issue with using this app, it gives things you can improve on. All of the kids participate in it, and it has never been negative enough to be a real issue.

kids whom are mature should be able to handle it.

Just fine for 12+ it is random so kids should not take it seriously.

Blown out of proportion

Let me preface this by saying that i am a junior in high school and I’ve never used this, but i have seen people use it. This app is not inherently malicious, however some users may use it to say hurtful things to others. Before people form an angry mob against it, realize two things: 1) To receive hurtful comments, you must deliberately create an account, share the link, and tell people to speak their mind. You are inviting people to say things about you, the messages don’t come on their own. 2) This app is just a platform for people to speak freely and anonymously. It encourages people to ‘say something nice,’ and the fact that some people aren’t using the app to say nice things proves not that this is an evil app, but that people will abuse anonymity when given it. This app is harmless; it is the people who are not.

Extremely dangerous

This site is tailor made for cyber bullying. Reports of urging others to kill themselves have been made. I have signed a petition on change.org asking that this app be removed,written to [email protected] to ask for their comment, and urged folks to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1 800 273 TALK if they are in danger. I am not a parent, but an adult who attempted suicide when I was younger, so I know how dangerous this app can be. It's dangerous for ANY age.

Window to cyber bullying

I felt physically sick. I am a parent of a lovely 13yr old girl, who struggles to fit in and has worried so much that people don't like her. She follows the crowd and probably installed this as everyone else has. I've just read messages from her so called friends telling her she's fat, ugly and she should kill herself. The fact that everything is anomous means she now knows that one of her friends thinks this way but will never know who. Stupid stupid stupid app, the developers should be thoroughly ashamed that they promote a platform for cyber bullying. I am deleting this now, and hope that my daughter hasn't taken the awful nasty messages to heart

Sarahah promotes bullying

I just recently found out about this site and after what I seen I would recommend every parent take it away from their kids. My 13 yr old daughter just wanted people to be nice to her and say nice things to her, but no one did----not one child/person said something nice to her. They said things from how fat and ugly she was (mid you she has less than an ounce of fat on her) said everyone hates her, no one likes her, she should just die. She is not depressed she is bipolar she is a waste of space on this earth and should take her life. and the list of negativity goes on. So between this, her so called friends, some of the kids that pick on her at school, she has recently cut her self trying to tell these kids to stop. This is no way to get people to listen to her, but after numerous times of her asking them to stop and them not listening she decided to cut herself. I blame a lot of social media. Some talk about being mature to be on the site, you can be mature enough to be on it but when others are not and someone is constantly attacking you and putting you down it eventually gets to a person especially a child. Something has to give and children need to stop being so harsh to one another we need more love and less hate in this world. I am terrified for all these children. We ask why is our suicide rate so high? It is for this reason.

Cyber bullying at its best

Anonymous comments against people or status’s avoid! Cyber bullying at its best and a cause of great upset and distress! People comment without you knowing who they are and can say what they want. No filters or control! Please avoid

Sarahah has many copycats

This to caution parents out there that while Sarahah (and another similar app Tellonym) are no longer availab’e On the app stores, kids still have access if they already have the app. In the case of Sarahah, you can still also login via online. Similar to other parent comments, Sarahah and other ´anonymous’ apps promote cyber bullying among vulnerable tweens and teens. http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-43174619.

Bullying, slut shaming and sexual comments

Sarahah is annonymous- anyone can ask you questions and make annonymous comments to you without being identified, making it one of the easiest ways to bully because you literally can not see who leaves the comments. I had a friend in school who was constantly slut shamed, bullied and recieved sexual questions from the random people who followed her on Instagram, asking her things like "would you do it with me for $50" etc. Sarahah is malicious.
