Forgot Username or Password Anonymous messaging app Sarahah has been removed from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store after it was noticed that the platform was encouraging bullying.
The issue was brought to light after Katrina Collins, an Australian mother, started a petition against Sarahah when she saw her 13-year-old daughter receive abusive messages on the platform that asked her to "kill herself." The petition, supported by 470,000 people, describes the app as "a breeding ground for hate" and reminds Apple and Google about their policies against apps facilitating harassment or self-harm.
"So basically if someone says kill yourself, then 'kill' is a keyword.
But if someone says jump off a cliff, now these robots will be able to detect that and block it as well," he explained.
Reviews on the App Store indicate that Sarahah is being used as a cyberbullying tool." World and Middle East business and financial news, Stocks, Currencies, Market Data, Research, Weather and other data.
