What is Darknet?

Darknets are small niches of the “Deep Web,” which is itself a catch-all term for the assorted Net-connected stuff that isn’t discoverable by the major search engines.

How To Access the Darknet

You will need to download a browser such as TOR to browse the Darknet. Then you just find websites through search engines such as Tor Hidden Wiki. These address will end in .onion rather than the .com most of us are used to. You can download the TOR browser here!

How to Stay Anonymous

Anonymity is usually achieved using an “onion network”. Your direct link is broken and the data is instead bounced around a number of intermediaries before reaching its destination.


Tor is short for The Onion Router (thus the logo) and was initially a worldwide network of servers developed with the U.S. Navy that enabled people to browse the internet anonymously. Now, it's a non-profit organization whose main purpose is the research and development of online privacy tools.

What's Under the Darknet?

The darknet is similar to a black-market after all. Things you wouldn’t normally find on the regular internet would be available here, away from the prying eyes of the law.
