How to Access the Dark Web

You’ve probably heard the terms dark web and Tor mentioned in the media, but using these sites isn’t nearly as risky as it may sound. In fact, it’s quite simple to get them up and running.

The dark web consists of pages that aren’t indexed by search engines such as Google. It’s the part of the web where data and other information that is normally private is stored. Email inboxes as well as Google Drive folders are stored on the deep web. They’re not visible to the public when browsing using a standard browser.

On the dark web, there are several sites that have legitimate goals. For instance, the website SecureDrop is a dark web site that permits whistleblowers to submit sensitive information to news organizations without revealing it. There are websites where people can buy and sell stolen credentials, including credit card numbers and passwords. These sites are often referred to ‘marketplaces’ and the most well-known examples are Silk Road and AlphaBay, but there are lots of others which have been shut down.

Tor is the mainstay of the dark web. It connects you through a myriad of volunteer servers scattered across the globe. This makes it difficult for anyone to monitor your activity. The name “Tor” is derived from its fact that the data it encrypts is layered like the layers of a pizza. This helps protect your privacy.
