As mentioned earlier both Whisper and Secret apps are the technology that is used by users to communicate with other users of the app while maintaining anonymity.  So exactly what do Whisper and Secret do?

Whisper and Secret are free apps that can be downloaded in both iOS and Android OS and it allows complete anonymity to its users. These social networks let the users send and receive messages anonymously. The uniqueness of Whisper is that the text messages that are sent by the users are superimposed over an image and is displayed as a greeting card to the reader.
With these two anonymous chat apps, the users can express themselves with the other users of the app and connect with other individuals who have a similar thought process. People are also encouraged to explore the unseen world as they can share any thoughts, stories, and feelings with the community without the fear of getting judged.

In the process, the users can form a relationship with the community that can often be a source of important support for an individual.  The best part of Whisper and Secret as an app are the fact that it does not require the user to update photos or email address and the users do not have to identify them. The app users do not have any friends or followers rather they can communicate with other users by responding to the Whispers that the others have Whispered (written).

These apps are quite a hit among the young adults because they are able to share intimate stories or events that make them uncomfortable sharing it with people whom they know for the fear of being judged, bullied or humiliated. Apps like Whisper and Secret forms a buffer from such instances for the users hence making it a safe place to share their stories.
