WE DID IT! Apple and Google removed bullying app!
Feb 21, 2018 — I can’t believe this actually happened, I’m over the moon.
Two of the largest tech giants in the world have heard us and they have listened and acted - as a result of the pressure we put on them to take cyber-bullying seriously!
Sarahah has been removed from Google Play and from the App Store!
Apple removed Sarahah soon after I started this Change.org petition. Next, the media paid attention: my opinion piece was featured in the Sydney Morning Herald and Brisbane Times: http://bit.ly/2C9LeSJ
Now, thanks to your signatures - over 450,000 of them - the Sarahah app has been removed from Google Play!
This victory is for Amy “Dolly” Everett who last month took her own life because of cyberbullying. It’s for my daughter who was told to kill herself via Sarahah. It’s for everyone who has reached out and shared their stories of pain, loss and courage.
I read your personal stories and your messages of support. I am with you as much as you have all been there with me. Thank you.
This victory is the beginning of a global fight against cyberbullying and we need to stay vigilant for our children, family and our friends. However, this Change.org petition proves that the internet can be an opportunity for positive change -- let’s move forward in that direction!
With gratitude and hope,
PS. I know there's still too many horrific stories cyberbullying and policies that need to change. I'd encourage you to start a petition of your own if there's an injustice or issue you want changed - it works!! change.org/start
