What is Sarahah ?
Sarahah is a social communication network which you can use to send messages to people without letting them know your identity. Means you can send a message to your family or friends or to anyone, but they can not find who has sent this message to them. They just receive the message from an anonymous person. This is introduce to get honest feedback and reviews from your co-workers or Friends. Sometimes people can’t praise you for what you did great to them. Or they can’t tell you on your face that what you did wrong to them. So you miss the honest feedback from the people around you.

Impact of sarahah
Anything can be bad if we will use that in improper way. Like that, Sarahah can be a very good platform which will help you in your self-development only when we will use it in a good way. But if we will use it to bully others or if we will start sending hateful messages, then this can be a dangerous place to stay. Many people already have complained about this App that they are getting useless and hateful messages which are disturbing them mentally. So it depends on us that how we are going to use this.
Truth of Sarahah Exposed and Sarahah Spyer
Some websites came in picture after sarahah got enough popularity. On their website they are showing that they will decrypt the message for you and show you who has sent you the message. Those websites are sarahahexposed.com, sarahahspyer.com and some others. Many people are also trying to get the senders name who has sent them I Love U or I hate U messages by using these websites. But these all are fake. The Data-Base of sarahah is not shared with anyone or no one can access the data. Official twitter account of sarahah twitted after knowing about these sites, see the tweet below.
So there is no chance that you can find out the sender. We also tried to know the truth and tried sarahahexposed.com. In its homepage there was so many dynamic things were updating continuously. The page was showing the recent messages it has decrypted. It asked for the username of my sarahah to decrypt my message. Once I have put and press enter it started decrypting and at the middle of the process it took me to a survey page. Though I completed that survey it showed me that “We are getting many comments please wait”. Then I tried all again and this time I pressed enter button without typing anything in username tab. The unbelievable fact is that it started running the decryption page without a username provided by me. Now its really funny.. 🙂
Why those fake sites started ?
They are just trying to earn money by taking advantage of the popularity that Sarahah got. It’s a trap to attract many users of sarahah to their website to get more traffic on their sites. They also get money by the survey they make by redirecting users to other webpages. So don’t believe these things and do not complete any surveys on those website. Because you are not going to get what are you looking for at the end. It’s just waste of time.
