What is the Dark Web?

The Dark Web is a small portion of the Deep Web that is intentionally hidden and inaccessible through standard web browsers. It requires special software, most commonly Tor (The Onion Router), to access. The Dark Web is known for its anonymity and privacy features, allowing users to browse and communicate without revealing their identity or location.
The Dark Web is often associated with illicit activities, such as illegal drug trafficking, weapons sales, hacking services, counterfeit currency, and other criminal endeavors. It serves as a platform for black markets, underground forums, and illegal marketplaces where users can buy and sell goods and services anonymously.
However, it’s important to note that not everything on the Dark Web is illegal. It also provides a platform for whistleblowers, activists, journalists, and individuals seeking privacy in repressive regimes. Nonetheless, due to its anonymity and lack of regulation, the Dark Web has gained notoriety for facilitating illegal activities and is a subject of concern for law enforcement agencies worldwide.
