"Sarahah, the anonymous messaging app that has exploded in popularity over the last few months, has been uploading users' phone contacts to its company servers for no apparent reason.

Zachary Julian, a senior security analyst at Bishop Fox, discovered the intrusive behavior when he installed the social media app on his Samsung Galaxy S5 running Android 5.1.1. He used a monitoring software called Burp Suite to see what data was entering and leaving his phone.

"Once I logged in I noticed what I've come to expect--authentication requests to receive messages, profile info," Julian told the Daily Dot. "Immediately after that--a couple seconds after logging in--it made two separate HTTP requests, one for all of your device's phone contacts and all of your device's emails.""
