New app making it easier to cyberbully

By  | 

LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - A new messaging app is taking social media by storm but experts warn its potential dangers could be used for cyber bullying.

The app is creating a stir among teenagers because of its feature to remain anonymous.

Sarahah is the latest viral sensation but some believe it raises concerns about cyber bullying.

The app allows users to send anonymous messages to anyone, friends or enemies.

The app store describes Sarahah as an app meant to help discover your strengths and areas for improvements, however some app reviewers are calling it a bullying app.

Sarahah is the most downloaded app in the country at the moment, but experts say it will fizzle out like last summer’s Pokemon Go.

Coming up tonight at Ten we speak to teens who believe the app can be helpful in some ways.
