What is the Dark Web?
The Dark Web is a collection of websites, networks, and services that exist on a hidden part of the Internet. It is not accessible through normal means, and only accessible through specialized tools and software, such as the popular Tor browser.
What is Tor?
Tor, or The Onion Router, is an open-source software program that allows users to access the dark web anonymously. Tor routes and encrypts data from the user’s computer to the Tor network of computers, before revealing its true destination. This ensures that the user’s identity is kept hidden while traversing the dark web.
How Does Tor Protect Against Cyber Attacks?
Tor provides an extra layer of security, helping to protect against cyber attacks and online surveillance. It prevents websites from tracking users’ IP addresses, and ensures that communications remain private and secure. Additionally, Tor helps to protect against malicious websites that may attempt to infect users’ computers with malware.
How Do I Use Tor?
Using Tor is relatively simple. First, you will need to download and install the Tor browser from the Tor website. Once the program is installed, you can launch the browser and start browsing the dark web anonymously. Be aware that certain websites may require a special URL to access, and not all websites on the dark web are safe to visit. As always, be careful when using the dark web, and use common sense.
