If you fancy checking out the dark web but you’re not too sure where to start, then we’ll show you some handy websites to get you started. First of all though, a quick introduction to the differences between the deep and the dark web. The deep web is basically anything on the internet that can’t be found using a search engine and this could be your private messages on social networks or your personal emails .
The dark web is a subsection of the Deep Web and it’s largely responsible for the Deep Web’s dark reputation, because this is where you might find black markets, ID’s for sale or unpleasant or dark images.
Although if you sort through all the clutter you’ll also find some great websites. Before you get started, to access the dark web you’ll need to download and use a dark web browser and you can use the tor browser run by the Tor project. Tor browser is the technology that bounces Internet users and website traffic through relays run by thousands of volunteers around the world, making it extremely hard for anyone to identify the source of the information or the location of the user.
Tor browser isolates each website that you visit so that third party trackers and ads can’t follow you, any cookies are also cleared when you’re done browsing and so will your browsing history too.
Once you have TOR installed, one of the most well-known places that people want to visit is the hidden wiki. However the hidden wiki is a generic name used by a number of Directory Sites
and not all directories are the same. I’d recommend checking out our homepage as a great place to get started, however if you want to jump straight into the dark web you can also
check out ‘hidden answers’, which is like the dark web version of Reddit. Users can ask questions and advice, post stories, and discuss a whole host of topics.
