The dark web has always been a myth for many and you hear a lot of stories connected to the web. All the stories that are being sold to common users about the web are just myths. The web is not just about the colorful pages that you enjoy on your computer screen.
We just scratch the surface of the internet through common search engines. The Internet world is very wide and it is constantly growing. The number of internet users is increasing like an unstoppable virus and no one has any idea that where is it going?
What is Dark Web?
Do you think you have a lot of knowledge about the internet and websites? Believe me; you are wrong as we just use 4% of the total internet that is called the surface web. The other portions of the internet that we generally don’t see are known by different names.
So let’s jump into the dark side of the internet. Most of us have heard the name of the dark web. But what is it actually about? It is just like a region and part of the internet facility that is not accessible easily by common users. This consists of web pages that are not generally indexed by commonly used search engines. Like Yahoo and Google or Bing. This can be a password protected site or a web page that is hidden behind a wall and only authorized persons can access this data. Most of the people are like regular users of the deep or web. They spend a lot of time there and it is really dark down there in terms of available information and data.
As the name shows, the dark web is not a joke and you need to think twice before jumping into this matter. Dark web is not just used by illegal agencies but even government agencies are also using this network to access their secret projects. You will be amazed to know that originally, Tor Browser was developed by U.S. military for their secret channel communication.
Who is on Dark Web?
We use internet on daily basis and we get everything on search engines. The question is that who is using dark web then? You dig deeper and you see a lot of illegal stuff and dealings going on in dark web. Weapon dealings are carried out through the dark web and even drugs are sold through this web.
Everything that we can afford to perform on the surface web, the dark web provides better security and privacy for those things. Many politicians and powerful people have a strong presence on the dark web but no one knows that who is behind the mask? That is the beauty of the dark web that your privacy is never compromised and everything stays anonymous for everyone. Even all military and secret agencies are also operating their networks through the web.
