What Is The Dark Web And How To Access It?

Dark Web

For those who are not aware, the dark web happens to be part of the internet that can only be accessed through the use of specialized software solutions. The use of these software solutions allows everyone in the dark web to remain completely anonymous as well as completely untraceable. There is a world of information available at the dark web that is simply not something that you can access by other means; information both dangerous, as well as sensitive, and illegal, can be obtained from the dark web.

Now that you know what dark web is, the next big question is how you can access it? Well, to be honest, the process is not that difficult. However, it is always better to exercise precaution because if you do not, then the chances of things going sideways are always going to be there.


Using a VPN is a Must

First things first, whenever you are going to access the dark web, the first thing that you will need is a good VPN. The reason why I am saying a good VPN is because you cannot trust something that is cheap because you never know how your experience with that is going to be. So, it is better if you just invest in a good VPN because that will make more sense.

The best thing is to trust a paid VPN rather than something else because at least you know that they work just fine and there are no discrepancies in the performance.


Get Tor Browser

Granted, Tor Browser is a browser that has had security issues in the past, but when you look around at all the options that you have, you will come to realize that Tor is perhaps the one browser that is still the safest, most secure way of accessing the dark web.

However, I would suggest that you only download the browser from the official website because you really do not want to get something like this from a website that you cannot trust. It is just something that is not going to be the right thing for you.


Always Take Security Precautions

When you look at a dark web, you will come to the realization that it is filled with people who are hackers, cybercriminals, as well as virus creators. This is just scratching the surface because there are so many people on the dark web that can cause some serious damage sitting behind a computer screen.

And since it is a dark web we are talking about, staying away from such people is going to be a difficult thing. That is why when you do start using Tor Browser, the best way is to stop using all other applications on your computer including all other clients, stop any service that is connected to the internet. If possible, use Tor on a device that has no personal information of any kind stored.


Start Using TAILS

This is something that most people have no idea about but if you are looking to get access to the dark web, the best thing that you can do is start using TAILS (Amnesiac Incognito Live System) is a Debian based version of Linux. The purpose of using this is that it leaves absolutely no trace of any user activity or the operating system on your computer. The best thing is that this operating system is completely free and boots from your USB or DVD.

TAILS also has the Tor browser pre-installed, so you really do not have to worry about anything coming in the way, and the best part is that it is programmed in such a way that all the traffic is routed through Tor, so you really do not have to worry.


Understand What You Are Getting Into

Okay, the thing is that the whole idea of getting access to the dark web does seem like a very good one and an attractive idea, too. After all, who would not want to explore the depths of the internet that not a lot of people can access. But having an understanding of it is extremely important. You cannot just get into something as dangerous as a dark web without really knowing anything about it because it can cause you some serious trouble.
