The dark web is a mysterious and often misunderstood place. It’s widely known as a hub for illegal activity, but there’s so much more to it than that. In this post, we’re going to take a quick look at one of the most popular features of the dark web: wiki links.
What are Wiki Links?
To put it simply, wiki links are pages on the dark web that act as an encyclopedia of sorts for all things illegal. They provide descriptions and links to a variety of sites offering everything from pirated content to drugs and weapons. While some might see these links as helpful, others view them as dangerous because they make it easy for people to find and access illegal activity. You need a special browser to even see them.
Where do you find Wiki Links?
Wiki links aren’t difficult to find on the dark web, but they’re just as easy to discover if you know where to look on the clear web. For instance sites like darkweburls.com host a large collection of working wiki links that you can browse at your convenience. Of course this assumes that you have the Tor browser installed so that you can actually see the websites themselves. Contrary to popular belief not all Wikilinks sites are illegal because there are many legitimate companies that use the dark web as a way to offer their services where they would otherwise be locked behind a firewall by different governments.
Are Wiki Links Legal?
This is a difficult question to answer because it depends on the country you’re in and the laws that govern the internet. In general, though, most countries have laws against linking to illegal content. This means that, while creating a wiki link page may not be illegal, linking to specific illegal sites could be considered aiding and abetting criminal activity.
This is one of the reasons why law enforcement agencies have been cracking down on wiki links in recent years. In 2017, for example, the FBI shut down a popular wiki link site known as DeepDotWeb. The operators of the site were charged with money laundering and conspiracy to traffic narcotics.
The dark web is full of surprises, and wiki links are just one of them. These pages act as an encyclopedia of sorts for all things illegal, providing descriptions and links to a variety of sites offering everything from pirated content to drugs and weapons. While some might see these links as helpful, others view them as dangerous because they make it easy for people to find and access illegal activity. What do you think?
