So have you ever thought to yourself-
“Man I really want to risk getting hacked for an opportunity to buy illegal goods”
Or maybe even,
“Man human trafficking sound GREAT”
Then the Dark Web may be for you. Although in all seriousness, If you want to know what the Dark Web is, how to access it safely, and not get hacked, then you came to the right place
So right now you are on the surface web. This includes everything from Google, Faceook, and more of your everyday websites that you use. Well, I will have you know there are way more places to visit on the internet that is NOT on the surface web. So the deep web or dark web or even know as the darknet are spooky phrases referring to websites that mask their IP(internet protocol) and can only be used by “encryption-friendly” software like TOR. This works by scrambling the users IP until it is unrecognizable for other users. Some hackers even jump server to server, so if people want to find them they have to go through numerous of scrambled IP addresses.
So off the bat, you can tell that the dark web is only for the people with the right tools and balls of steel. It is filled with black hat hackers and people willing to steal your identity at every wrong move you make. So the first step is to not get “cocky” and keep focused on what you are set out to do without getting noticed. You do not want to get noticed because then you become a target. When you are a target NOTHING good will come out it.
So you might want to know what you are going to find while searching the deep web. Well, i will try to scare you the least as possible.The modern Dark Web’s notorious reputation is well-earned, and the hidden internet is undeniably dangerous. Though encrypted websites have existed for more than a decade, the Dark Web rose to mainstream prominence alongside the Silk Road, the now-defunct “Amazon for Drugs.” YouTube is full of spooky deep web experience, and the Hidden Wiki serves as a portal to the criminal underground.
So let’s start off with the easy part, TOR. TOR stands for The Onion Router and is by far the safest way to access, although there are still much more almost as safe options. To be as safe as possible you need to have as little personal info on your computer as possible. So consider buying a laptop for this purpose only. If you have something very sensitive like your social security number already on your PC, then I would highly recommend not using that electronic device for your TOR browsing.
So you have you special darknet machine. Now what? Since you just got or cleared a laptop you should already be malware and spyware free, but check if your not. So let’s log on!!!! So you need to be clear on something. There are certain search engines that you should use because they are safe and there are some that you should most definitely not use. These following should be safe. I have them in order from most to least safe, but they are all fine for use.
All of these will not track you and will scramble your IP. Try clicking on one of the last 5 links. Using Google Chrome you might notice that it says DNS server not found hen you click on them. It because the IP is scrambled and you can’t get access to it unless you have TOR installed. So if you do, try right clicking the link and click “copy link address”. Then you can go into the secure browser of your choice and paste it into the URL search tab.
Encryption is extremely strong but not impenetrable. The FBI discovered and exploited vulnerabilities in the TOR network. Though the agency refused to disclose the source code used to penetrate the network, undoubtedly law enforcement agencies around the world monitor and operate on the Deep Web. Members of the TOR project vowed to patch network holes and strengthen the protocol.
So I’m not going to goo as far as showing how to do anything illegal on this blog, but I will tip you off and say, that you do do a lot on the “Silk Road”. I won’t go any further because, with these tips I gave you, this adventure is yours to discover. This is your story.
