Shadow Internet - privacy or wish to get the forbidden fruit?

The World Wide Web seems to be launched quite recently, but users already require the creation of an alternative network. You've probably already heard about shady Internet sites. They are also sometimes called deep or dark web.

Regardless of our wishes, the resource works and thrives

The pseudo name affects both the fact of creating complete anonymity, and the fact that you can visit portals closed by censorship: for political, moral and ethical, or any other considerations. Some of the inaccessible resources have been banned due to violation of the rules established by the "white" Internet.

The most popular network on the Runet is the shadow Internet Tor. Today politicians are arguing a lot about the possibility of closing this anonymizer, which is already world famous. The main reason for this is the supposition that Tor is being used by terrorists or other groups preparing for real crimes through such a confidential connection.

Meanwhile, the number of those who want to learn about the shadow Internet Tor, how to get to its sites, is only increasing every day. There’s an additional stimulating factor: through the anonymizer you can visit the World Wide Web without restrictions, here are just a few examples:

In addition, it is difficult to hide the fact that this version of the Internet opens up access to porn sites, politically prohibited portals, including the foreign press.

The Shadow Internet contains sites that cannot be found through conventional search engines. But you can get information either through clones of real portals. Alternatively, you can use specially created search directories that do not compete with the usual Google, Yandex, and others. Here you will find a list of several Tor (The Onion Router), designed to search within the created structure.

To make it possible to use “onion sites”, users are invited to download a boot file. Detailed information about this is on the official portal. Keep in mind, though: chasing anonymity can get you into serious trouble with JavaScript viruses as well as middleman attacks.

Despite all warnings, users tirelessly visit dating sites. The ability to communicate at the level 18+ without hesitation on the topic of morality and other things makes the development of the shadow Internet promising and attracting a lot of capital.
