dark web

The dark web (also referred to as the underground web) is an encrypted sector of the internet that is not indexed by traditional search engines. It is only accessible with specific browsers such as TOR and special network configurations. The dark web offers anonymity and privacy to its users; however, it is also well known to be a center of illegal activity such as selling illicit goods and services.
