What Is the Deep Web?
Many people ask the question, “What is the deep web?” or, “What is the Deep Web,” and so forth. So what is the deep web? Here are some answers to that question:
The deep web is a computer software. The term “deep” means “in the depths.” There are millions of computers with web browsing capabilities in the “deep web.” It is on these computers that you can find emails, videos, files, documents, and even be able to search for web addresses.
There are so many things found on the deep web. Since so many things are found on the deep web, many say it is not really possible to find out who is on the deep web.
Who is that person that is running the website who is claiming it is his or her website? He or she is a “phisher.” A phisher is someone who uses false information in order to steal someone’s identity.
A phisher is someone who is pretending to be a legitimate business or company, but he or she is not really doing it. Phishers often hide behind a false website and a “pay-per-click” program to make it look as if the website is legit. They may also send emails that look like they are from the company. The email may tell you that your credit card information has been sent to someone else’s address, but is actually being used to send money to the hacker.
This is why the deep web is such a good place for criminals. These criminals know that they can get away with stealing someone’s identity without anyone knowing that it was them.
Another reason why the deep web is so popular is because it can’t be traced. The search engines have trouble finding any information on the deep web.
However, many free sites do exist on the deep web. What can you find on these sites? There are emails, chat rooms, newsgroups, and articles on politics, current events, and more.
Websites such as these are called Tor sites. Tor is an acronym for The Onion Router. It is a technology that hides the true IP address of a site by using many layers of encryption and routing around some countries.
The deep web is full of many hidden sites. People just have to search for the right kind of website.
Just be careful about the kind of information you put on the deep web. Don’t give out personal information, and use the sites only for education. Never do anything illegal, but do the best you can to stay away from the predators.
If you want to know more about the deep web, I suggest you read this book. Both of these books explain in detail the deep web and its many uses.
