Full Ban of Sarahah

20/02/18 - We won!

Sarahah has been removed from both the Apple App Store and Google Play.

It follows over 120,000 of us signing a petition, then thousands of us writing in to Apple and Google and posting on their facebook walls.

First Apple took down the app, so we went back to Google and a few days later they took down the app too!

Shut down their site, the site generates tonnes of abuse for teenagers. This must be stopped.

Why is this important?

A mobile phone app called Sarahah lets bullies send abusive messages anonymously. And it’s already spreading like wildfire across our schools - countless children’s lives are being made miserable right now

We’ve seen apps like Sahara before, and the danger they put our children in. Last year a similar anonymous messaging app was taken offline after the app was linked to the suicide of a young man. We can’t wait for another tragedy like this to happen before taking action.

How it will be delivered

Present the petition to Sarahah, ask them to shut down.
