What is Dark or Deep Web?

We all believe that what we see on Google or Bing or maybe some of the other search engine platforms is all there is out there in the world but there is something called the Deep Web as well. Deep Web is something that is not indexed by any search engine and is only accessible to people who have a specific software, configuration or authorization.

In very simple terms, Deep Web is something that you will not be able to find on Google. They are all hidden websites or links or content that are made to share a specific information to the people without getting noticed. They are like ninjas and nobody knows who rules the Dark or Deep Web. Its like a huge community of anonymous people with a single agenda: To Keep Information Safe and Secure from Government Bodies or General Audience.

Just to give you a glimpse of how vast is Deep Web, check out the image below:

If you don’t know how many units is 1 Zettabytes. It equals to 1 Billion Terabytes! Also Its increasing at the rate that is exceptional and completely unknown. 

There are lot of unknown people around the world who are continuously discovering the Dark Web or Deep Web to find scapegoats. There are so many scary incidents reported around the world that local people have experienced before entering the Dark Web. One of the way that you can access the Deep Web is through TOR.

If you want to understand how TOR works, this is a small demo of the same:

But going on Deep Web needs some serious knowledge of where to go and what to avoid with a very solid firewall. If you have no idea of what I m trying to warn you here, you should definitely avoid going to the Deep Web. Lets see some of the creepiest experiences that people had using Deep Web:

  1. A Reddit user wrote:  “Was on Tor, browsing da usuals. Go out to eat foods at the Five Guys. Come back. More Tor. Find a picture of me eating at Five Guys.”
  2. In CompSci, we often got bored and dicked around. One day we ran into the deep web. The most disturbing site we found was a comprehensive guide for cooking women. We’re not talking about a short joke here. This page had information on what body types to use for specific cuts, how to prepare these cuts, and how to cook the girl so she lives as long as possible. It horrifies me that people way worse than the freaks on Criminal Minds exist.”
  3. “I ended up on some site full of weird pictures or what looked like dead people. I noped out,”
  4. “So I had hit the normal silk road and shit. I was browsing and I come up on this terrorist bomb tutorial website. I noped out fast,” says Reddit user MKROBINSON.

These are very very small part of the world that we don’t know about at all and many wouldn’t even wish to see what they might discover on such platforms and unknown sites. You can try discovering some unique content but please be careful before you go any ahead and get yourself in trouble.
