If you’re interested in what’s lurking in the shadows of the internet, accessing the dark web shouldn’t be difficult — but it’s not without risks. Imagine yourself in a city with hidden back alleys. It’s not difficult to discover but if you choose the wrong path it could be risky.

The dark web is a cesspool of criminal activity, including black-hat hackers, drug trafficking and terrorists. It’s a place that criminals, such as hitmen human smugglers and corrupt officials can meet. The dark web isn’t only bad. It also functions as a channel between political snobs and people from the free world. It lets whistleblowers anonymously submit tips.

To browse the dark web it requires a specific browser, called Tor. It functions a bit like an VPN in that it encrypts your web requests and removing geo-location tags that your ISP or the government could use to track you. Tor also increases your privacy by routing your request through a network of volunteer servers in the world.

After installing and configuring Tor Once you’ve installed and configured Tor, you’re able to begin browsing the dark web. Content isn’t as easily indexed like the web’s surface, but there are still many sites worth checking out. For instance, you’ll find online shops where you can buy illegal drugs and firearms and also sites that provide guides for hiding your digital footprint and the launch of ransomware attacks.
