One of the most downloaded apps, Julian estimates that it is possible that Sarahah may have already harvested hundreds of millions of phone numbers and email addresses. Even Zain al-Abidin has acknowledged this. More intriguingly, there doesn't seem to be a reason for why the company would need to take such an ill-advised action in the app's current form.
In it, writer Yael Grauer reveals the app's uploading of users' phone contacts to the company's servers. He said that the aim 'transmits all of email and phone contacts stored on Android.' The report adds that a similar thing happens on Apple devices as well. Julain also mentioned that even if a user does not use the app, still it uploads contact again and again. However, the Sarahah app doesn't have any such feature at this moment.

They also suggest teens who use the app to remove themselves from the search function and only share usernames with people they know.

The primary argument against Sarahah is the fact that they are "stealing" your data because the app does not have a feature which would need access to your contacts. But all but the most expensive Android phones are notoriously slow to receive updates like Marshmallow, and around 54 percent of Android users are using older versions that don't have these permissions, and users have to be savvy enough to know where to find the app permissions (Settings Apps Gear button App permissions).
