The Dark Web is not accessible through regular search engines that we use in our daily lives, so you won’t find it on Google.
While the internet seems to have endless amounts of information, in reality we only have access to 0.4% of all information that’s out there through search engines. The other 99.96% of the information on the web is made up of databases, private academic and government networks and the Dark Web. It’s estimated that the Dark Web is 550 times larger than the surface web and it continues to grow!
The Dark Web gives you the ability to operate anonymously, making a playground for criminals and a lucrative marketplace for stolen data and illegal activity. In today’s digital society we complete a lot of our routine activities online, from shopping to banking to socializing. In this process all our personal data and information is being transmitted and stored online. That information provides a lucrative business opportunity for cybercriminals. Online hackers and scammers have become more sophisticated and only need a few key personal details to gain access to some of your most important accounts, such as your banking, CRA account, and SIN number. With that information they have the ability to apply for loans, make purchases, or worse conduct illegal activity in your name.
