The truth about the dark web

The dark web is the part of the internet where users can access unindexed web content anonymously through special web browsers like TOR

While the dark web is popularly associated with illegal activities, it is also used by the intelligence community, whistleblowers, members of the media, and ordinary citizens

The dark web is a network of unindexed web content that is made anonymous through a variety of encryption and routing techniques

The same privacy and anonymity that deliver protection from tyrants and targeted advertisements also make the dark web a springboard for crime

Some of the more prevalent illicit activities on the dark web include arms trafficking, drug dealing, and the sharing of exploitative content

The dark web contains a wide variety of services and information, including online black markets, anonymous email, education and training workshops, forums, and personal blogs

The dark web is primarily used by people who want to have anonymity online. It was initially created for political activists and dissidents to communicate while living under oppressive governments

Recently, however, it's become more commonly used by cybercriminals and others engaged in illegal activity who are looking to obscure their identities

If your personal details have been exposed in a data breach, they may be available on the dark web. It's important to know how to spot suspicious activity and how to stay safe
