The Dark Web sounds nefarious and scary but with the right tools, and a balls of brass, I can access and browse safely.
The deep/dark web refers to web sites that hide their web address and is only accessible by using encrypted tools like the TOR browser, the Tails operating system designed to boot from a USB flash drive, all from an ideally new, clean, low-cost computer. And forget about using social media sites such as Facebook or even Google. Use a search engine that won’t track you such as DuckDuckGo.
I’ve been exploring the deepest, darkest parts of the web for awhile now and it is fascinating in how it reminds me of the early, pioneer days of web 1.0.
This feels very much like exploring the frontier here because the possibilities and the risks are both real and exciting. More later.
