Dark website, Dark Web Access And Dark net
The dark net both incorporates encryption and also uses special privacy browsers. The best known is Tor, which is sometimes called, “The Onion Router“. It is a free piece of software that directs traffic through a massive network (consisting of thousands of relays). These servers are run by volunteers.
Explanation by the Tor Project:
“Tor‘s users employ this network by connecting through a series of virtual tunnels rather than making a direct connection, thus allowing both organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy”.
The Tor network was developed by the U.S Navy and is still partly funded by the U.S. government. People can publish websites that can’t be tracked. Recently, AlphaBay and Hansa were closed. Both these sites were run as hidden services (Onion services) on the Tor network.
Step 1: Obtain VPN
First get yourself a virtual private network (VPN) if you are intending to get on the darkweb. Some are free, some of them cost a small amount of money. We recommend getting a paid service such as NordVPN or Dashlane. You don’t NEED a VPN, but if you want to be secure, get one. Even if Tor was compromised and your were visiting dark net sites, because you had a VPN it is very unlikely you could be traced.
Step 2: Obtain Tor Browser
It is exactly the way you imagine. Go to Google. Search “The Tor Project”. Download and install the software. Next, you’ll have the option to “Start Tor Browser”. Once you do this, you will be able to access .onion websites.
Step 3: Find Your Way
If you want to visit marketplaces, simply find a Darknet Market List. You might also go to the popular databases, the Onion Directory and the Hidden Wiki. These places will tell you how to access most things in the dark web.
- DO NOT change window size while in Tor. The authorities can track you easier is you do.
- TURN OFF JAVA SCRIPT.
- COVER YOUR WEBCAM use a piece of tape.
- DISABLE YOUR MIC
- Shutdown all non essential apps
- Use an anonymous e-mail account
Follow all these steps and your will have toured the dark web in the safest way possible.464
