The dark web, often confused with the deep web, is a small part of the deep web that is intentionally hidden and is inaccessible by standard web browsers like Firefox, Google Chrome, and internet explorer.

It's here that you can easily find things like narcotics, child porn, stolen credit cards, and other illegal goods. Most of the transactions that take place in the dark web are done with bitcoin and other crypto-currency.
Wow, I just went on the dark web, and in a few minutes, I was able to find heroin, meth, LSD, automatic weapons, and a stolen credit card!

Dark web is the portion of the deep web that requires special software such as TOR to navigate. Commonly, confused people refer to the "deep web" as the" dark web", but the deep web is just the information on the internet which normal search engines can't find, such as pages within sites without links to click on.
The dark web is a good place to download some illegal crap and then get caught because you didn't do it right

The Dark Web is a part of the internet that can only be accessed by something called a Tor Network. It is commonly confused with the Deep Web, which is just the part of the internet that can't be indexed by google (edit profile pages, etc.)

It is also commonly confused to be one of the darkest places in the world, full of crime and illegal things everywhere. That's actually not true. The Dark Web is just 4% of the internet that can't be accessed by regular web browsers. And also, only about 30% of the things on there are illegal. It's mostly just for people who want to be anonymous from the tracking networks that Google/facebook etc. have. Like for instance, Facebook has its own Dark Web address.

Unlike the media portrays it, the Dark Web isn't a bad place. It's just for people who want to be anonymous in the world of websites and ads tracking everything you do.

But you still might not want to go there. The things that ARE on there can be scary. Child porn, dead body porn, assassination lotteries, red room tickets (you don't want to know what that is), bitcoin fraud, and everything else is fairly common. I don't go to any of these websites, and if you don't want to have to bleach your eyes in prison then I suggest you don't either.

Also, if you do want to access the Dark Web, then I suggest you get a VPN to mask your IP address, unplug all microphones, cameras, speakers, and printers, go there on a Virtual Machine(preferably with TailsOS), and don't do illegal things.

The deep web,invisible web,or hidden web3 are parts of the World Wide Web whose contents are not indexed by standard web search engines. The opposite term to the deep web is the surface web, which is accessible to anyone using the Internet. Computer scientist Michael K. Bergman is credited with coining the term deep web in 2001 as a search indexing term.
These aren’t just stories of the deep web - these are deep web horror stories. We dug through the bowels of the internet to find first-person experiences of some seriously messed up stuff that happened on the deep web. Just be glad we did all the research and compiled all these scary dark web stories in one place for you. Now you don’t have to worry about being on an FBI watch list because you were researching these things yourself.

The Dark Web is a section of the Deep Web which is only accessible via the Tor network. Dark Web URL addresses typically end in .onion, and ensure complete privacy within their servers, untraceable by your network provider or your government. When surfing on the Dark Web, it is highly recommended you use a VPN or Proxy to stop you from being tracked.
