What is the “Dark Web” really?

Explore the Dark Web. Is it just an evil bazaar filled with scammers, criminals, drug dealers and weapons merchants? Or is there more? The Dark Web is not just for criminals. The Dark Web exists to provide a very high level of privacy and anonymity. The Dark Web is also used by journalists, political opposition groups, freedom fighters, espionage agents, and military forces. If luck is with us, we will fire up a Linux PC, open the TOR browser, and take a live tour of the more general interest parts of the Dark Web.
