All you need to know about Deep Web before surfing

There are thousands of videos on Youtube, and billions of sites on Google but do you know it is only 4 per cent of the internet and 96 per cent of the internet is still hidden in the form of the Deep Web.

So In this article, we will talk about the hidden internet which is also called the deep web and why it is not easily accessible to people.

What Is Deep Web?

The deep web refers to parts of the internet which is not fully accessible through standard search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing.

The deep web gives users access to far more information than is available on the internet. On the Deep Web, one can read books that are banned, know some of the darkest secrets of all time etc which is not possible on the normal web.

One surfing through Deep Web must be cautious as any wrong move will lead him behind the bars or in some other trouble.

Deep Web can be accessed through Tor Browser which hides the identity but still, it is advised to use a VPN along with Tor to be protected from the phishing attack of hackers.

For starters, much of the content on the deep web is irrelevant and would be boring while surfacing.

But on Deep Web, there is a part called as Dark Web which is much more difficult to access and it has some of the most disturbing things in the world.

Dark Web is only 0.01 per cent of the Deep Web and one needs to be very much cautious about the hackers on the Dark Web who tries to steal personal information and harm that particular individual.

On Dark Web, there are many illegal activities happening such as buying and selling weapons, and drugs, knowing some of the darkest secrets of a country, seeing child pornography, hiring hitmen and many more.


There were reports that on the dark web, there were red rooms which is like a live stream event and can be joined by people all over the globe in that live stream mostly a person that was abducted was tortured to death.

One drug-dealing website called Silk Road became so famous recently it was cited as an example of the dark web in mainstream media reports. Its owner Ross Ulbricht was eventually arrested and sentenced to life in prison with no chance for parole.

So at last the curious one need to stay away from it at any cost.
