Dangerous Bullying App

Warning: Dangerous app called SARAHAH

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.

It is like putting a bully in their pocket!

The dangerous app has hit the headlines this week after one mother spoke out about how bullies were using the app to target her child suffering from cancer.
 
A massive public outcry could force the makers of Sarahah to take their dangerous app out of children's hands. 
 
As Sarahah’s popularity has grown in recent months, so have concerns about young people’s safety.
 
A fourteen year old girl suffering from depression was anonymously told to commit suicide by users of the app. Whilst a twelve year old cancer patient was teased for his appearance after chemotherapy.  

Any parent who wants advice on keeping children safe online can contact the NSPCC and O2 helpline on 0808 800 5002.
