Recently Sarahah becomes the new web sansation in the world of technology. The Saudi Arabia based app allows users to send messages to other profiles without exposing their username. The meaning of the Arabic word Sarahah is 'honesty'. According to the app developers Sarahah is meant to help their users “self-develop by receiving constructive anonymous feedback.” Sarahah app's craze is continuing. From teens to youngsters everyone seems to having fun with it.

These sites asks Sarahah users to enter their username and click on a ‘click now’ button to decrypt the messages. It also allows users to send Sarahah users anonymous messages. After entered the username and clicked the ‘click now’ button, the service asks the user to “download two free mobile apps or complete one short survey” in order to “pay for the server costs or prove human or not." While the user proceeded anyway, the next page gives the option to share the link to the user's facebook timeline.
