The Dark Web
The Dark Web is a hidden area of the World Wide Web which internet users can access using special software. Notably, users are anonymous, and their activity is untraceable. It has legitimate uses such as for citizens of oppressive regimes. However, over half of all sites on the Dark Web are used for criminal activities, including the disclosure and sale of digital credentials.
