Sarahah ("honesty" in Arabic) is an anonymous service for providing feedback. Users can create an account and a specific domain name to start receiving feedback. The users giving feedback are anonymous and you cannot find out the identity of the person asking questions. If, however, you're offended or hurt by any content you receive, you can block the sender.
Originally designed for the workplace, its release in app stores has seen it take off among the general public which has resulted in increasing press coverage. Many reports cover the risks of anonymous messaging, such as hate speech, but also about the app uploading the address book of the phone.
