Knowledge Base / How to Access the Dark Net and Deep Web

You probably already heard or read about the dark net and deep web. But what is the dark net and deep web exactly?

Simply put, the deep web just means that it is below the surface, below the reach of the traditional search engines that you use such as Google or Bing. 

Ultimately, these known search engines use links to search and index websites. And then, they display them, by a certain order, depending on many different factors that include inbound links, relevancy, and keywords. However, their mission stops where links stop. And this is where the deep web comes in. 

What's On The Deep Web?

As we already mentioned above, you can find a lot of information that is not displayed or that it's not visible (since it doesn't contain any links) on the deep web. This information includes:

  • Data that companies store on their private servers
  • Content of your personal email accounts
  • Content of your personal banking accounts
  • Content of your social media accounts
  • Legal documents
  • Medical records
  • Content that is contained within academic and scientific databases.
