Everyone knows what the internet is. With the way the world is today you just can’t live without it. The way that internet use is tied into just about every aspect of life now, it’s hard to imagine what we did for all those years before it came along.
The web is a great thing but it does have its limitations. Oh, you might not think that it does when you come across something that’s pretty distasteful, but believe me, there is worse that is available with the click of a mouse.
The “Deep Web”, also referred to as the “Hidden Web” or “Deepnet”, has plenty to offer those that are bored with the regular internet. It’s an underground world that operates separate from the regular internet, and you can find just about anything you want to on there. It’s actually much larger than the regular internet but there is a reason that it isn’t publicized very often.
Those that look to do things privately go to the deep web and that’s exactly the reason. All IP Addresses are hidden and everything is done in complete anonymity. You can only imagine what this would lead to. Some truly dark things go on there, but they aren’t all bad. Read on and you’ll learn a whole bunch of things that you never knew before. You’ll also find yourself giving thought to some of the ways the government does things.
15. It’s Widely Used
Just because you may have never heard of it, doesn’t mean that it’s not a real thing. As a matter of fact there are well over 500 BILLION pages on the deep web. That would be compared to the more than one billion pages that are on the regular internet. Those numbers were from 2003 so you can just imagine how many there are now. The bottom line is that the deep web is actually much bigger than the regular internet that you use every day.
14. Access What The Rest Of The World Can’t
There are plenty of things to do on there that you might like. Don’t take that as an indication that it’s all fun and games on there though. There are plenty of things that happen on the deep web that you won’t want to know about. We’ll talk about some of them in a bit.
One of the things you could do is find those books that are banned in your country, or maybe just flat out banned around the world. If they are written and banned, you can definitely find them on the deep web. You might consider the deep web the Wal-Mart of the underworld, but you don’t have to leave the house.
13. Special Software Is Needed For Access
You can’t just turn on your computer and log onto the deep web. It’s completely separate from the regular internet. The only way that a person can access the deep web is by using the software “The Onion Router”. It’s commonly referred to as “TOR” and what it does is offer complete privacy in what you are doing.
Users of TOR have their IP addresses shown as anonymous so they can’t be tracked. Having this knowledge, you can only imagine what goes on in the bowels of the deep web. Basically, if you want it you can get it, it’s as simple as that.
12. There’s Lots Of Criminal Activity On It
If you can think of an illegal activity, you can bet that it’s done on the deep web. Having your movements completely private offers a lot of open doors to you. One of the most popular things on there is the selling of illegal credit cards.
You can also find some of the best hackers in the world on there. They aren’t very hard to find as they don’t have to hide. Sometimes a simple post can find you one of the best pretty quickly.
11. Need To Get A Fake ID?
Along with hitmen and drugs you can also get that fake ID you so badly need. It’s very easy to do right there on the deep web, if you have the money. Just like in real life, nothing is free there, but if you have the financial backing you can get anything you want. You can get a very real looking fake ID for around a thousand bucks on there.
10. You Need Special Currency
You can’t use cash, check or credit cards on the deep web. Those leave paper trails and the entire point of it is to remain anonymous. Originally Bitcoin was used for all transactions that took place on the deep web. You probably know all about that by now but if you don’t you can easily search that on the regular web.
Currently Coinbase is used to exchange payments on the deep web. It’s a completely unique currency but like anything else it’s based on regular currency, it just can’t be tracked. So if you are looking to make some illegal transactions on the deep web you’d better stock up. Your debit card is no good here.
9. Need Weed?
The deep web is regularly used for drugs. Weed is a very popular item that changes hands on a regular basis. One of the biggest suppliers is a company in the Netherlands.
“The Silk Road” was once the most credible source for the purchasing of drugs on there. That came to an end when it was raided and put out of business. There is a chance that they might be back operating under a different name now but it’s hard to tell since everything on there is anonymous. Which leads to the question of how they got caught in the first place?
8. Or Weapons?
Some people have more knowledge about the array of weapons that are out there in the world today. Those that do and want some of them for themselves need only to get onto the deep web. They’ll find anything they want for the right price. ANYTHING.
Are you looking for an AK-47 or maybe a rocket launcher? This isn’t Grand Theft Auto, this is the real world. Get on the deep web and they can be yours. All the talk about gun control in public forums is a waste of time. It doesn’t matter what types of laws are put into place as long as the deep web is available. Basically if you can think of it, you can buy it there. What good are waiting periods and background checks when you can get anything you want right here? Think about it.
7. You’ll Find Some Really Odd Stuff
When I say that you can buy anything you want on the deep web I sincerely mean it. It’s not filled with only drugs and guns and other illegal activity though. You can find some truly odd and weird stuff as well.
You can find statues or symbols of loved ones from the past. You can even buy child spirits from abortions and miscarriages. No joking there. If you want it, chances are extremely good that you can find it on the deep web. Let’s face it, if there is a demand for anything at all, someone will be willing to sell it to you for the right price.
6. TOR Is Sponsored By The Government
When TOR was first created it was done by a nonprofit group. Eventually though the government took over. This leads to a lot of questions about the true anonymousness of things. How can all of this illegal activity go on with complete privacy right under the government’s nose? Well, maybe they know all about it but just won’t talk about it.
Officially, TOR is sponsored by the United States Department of State Bureau Of Democracy, Human Rights, And Labor, The Ford Foundation and The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency. Those are some of the main players but there are plenty of other government groups that are involved.
5. It’s Used To Get The Truth Out
There are plenty of counties in the world where people can’t speak freely. Journalists are faced with this censorship issue every day. The deep web allows them an avenue to get their word out to the rest of the world, unfiltered.
Some countries, like China for instance, heavily monitor what the press says. Those journalists that work there can take to the deep web and let the truth out, something they can’t do in regular forums.
If you ever wonder where government officials get their information, you can bet that at least some of it comes from here. They obviously know that it exists so you can’t tell me that they don’t use it as well.
4. Album Releases
Death Grips once released an album only on the deep web. It’s called “No Love Deep Web” and only their strongest followers could get it. It’s aptly named and was a great marketing move for the release. It’s not so good if they were trying to top the charts however as only those that want to dive into that world could get it.
It just goes to show you though, that there are plenty of things that are available to you on the deep web. All you have to do is look for it. You never know what you’ll find. The band of your dreams might be on there about to release their newest work, just waiting for you to find them.
3. It’s A Dangerous Place
You have to be very careful what you are doing on the deep web. It’s not for amateurs to be cruising around and clicking anywhere they want to. One wrong click and you can quickly find the end of your computer’s life.
Hackers are all over the deep web and while some people are on there strictly to make money and offer a service, there are plenty of people on there that have malicious intentions. These hackers will create posts with links that look very enticing to get people to click on them. What happens next can be disastrous if there is malware or some other kind of virus attached to the link.
2. Game Fixing
I said earlier that there is plenty of criminal activity on the deep web. That includes just about anything that you can think of that’s illegal. One of the things that happen quite a bit is game fixing.
Back in the days you had some creepy guy hanging out with the team in a bar or in the locker room trying to talk athletes into point shaving events or just flat out throwing games, thus fixing the final results so betters can clean up against bookies or betting houses. Now all they have to do is come onto the deep web and it happens more than you might think.
1. There Is Plenty Of Porn
You might see this and think to yourself ‘Well there’s plenty of porn on the regular internet so why would I care about this?’ That is very true but the deep web offers up some of the hardest-core porn that there is out there. There is stuff on there that’s banned in most parts of the world for obvious reasons.
Like most other things on there, anything that you can think of is just waiting for you to find it. There is a report that there is even one guy on the deep web who has a hidden camera in his sister’s room. He broadcasts it daily for the world to see. Nice guy, huh?
