This app is now a days immensely use by many companies for constructive feedback about their product from customers.

Many parents asked by experts that they never allow their kids to download this app. But Tawafiq gave a very justified answer of this claim : these problems are common with all social media platforms like Facebook , Instagram and twitter.
It was also news that Sarahah has secretly collecting the address book and approaching personal contacts. Twafiq refused to that claim and said in next update he will remove this feature of address upload.
