Deep Web and Dark Web Concepts

  • What is the Deep Web? The deep web consists of internet content that is not indexed by standard search engines and therefore cannot be found through regular searches. Access to this content typically requires a username and password. Examples include your bank accounts, private company databases, academic articles, and so on.

    What the Deep Web is Not? The deep web is not directly associated with illegal activities. This term simply refers to internet content that is not indexed and mostly contains completely legal information.


    What is the Dark Web? The dark web is a subset of the deep web and can only be accessed using special software (such as the Tor browser). Illegal activities may be more common on the dark web, including drug sales, weapon trade, and fake identities.

    What the Dark Web is Not? The dark web is not solely about illegal activities. It also hosts people escaping oppressive regimes, journalists, and individuals seeking to communicate anonymously.
