Sarahah Shutdown

This petition made change with 5 supporters!


Sarahah is a social networking service for providing anonymous feedback. In Arabic sarahah means "frankness" or "honesty". It was created by Zain al-Abidin Tawfiq in the end of 2016 and reached a sudden worldwide success by mid-2017.This growth is considered to be deeply related with the release of a Snapchat update that allowed people to share URLs on their snaps.

Sarahah allows people to text messages to others and the person reading that could then reply anonymously. Initially, it was meant for workers to compliment their bosses.

On 26 August 2017, it was reported that the Sarahah mobile app quietly uploads the user's address book to its web servers.

On 12 January 2018, it was reported that a woman in Queensland, Australia had started a petition to have the app and others like it banned, after friends of her 13-year-old daughter sent her abusive messages, including ones suggesting that she kill herself.

We have recognized a pattern, a pattern that shows the brutality of anonymity and Cyberbullying. We must join together as one and put an end to this anonymous messaging application and others like it so that we teach upcoming future generations that those softwares are one of the reasons humanity is being affected emotionally and mentally.

Join me in stopping this chaos, cutting hatred and encouraging the spread of love and peace in this world.
