The Dark Web is a part of the Internet that is not indexed by search engines. The content there can only be accessed by special browsers that hide the identity of their users (that’s why it’s called “dark”). The anonymity it offers makes it a suitable venue for people who want to freely express themselves without fear of being persecuted. However, this freedom has also made the Dark Web a place for trading illicit content.

Think of the moon as the entire Internet. The side that faces the earth, the one that we can always observe, is the Web we know and use. But the dark side of the moon, the side that we never see, is like the Dark Web.
