What is the Dark Web?

The Dark Web refers to websites that are hidden and used for nefarious and illegal activities such as trafficking and trading of stolen data. As such, it is dangerous to be on the Dark Web!

Websites which are part of the Dark Web cannot be found on Google — they can only be accessed through direct links. Users may also need software such as Tor browsers, proxies and virtual private networks in order to gain access to these websites.

The next time you come across this phrase in a movie or TV show, you know what it refers to!
