Want to access Dark Web but don’t know how? Don’t worry, we have got you covered. But let us first learn what Dark Web really is. Dark Web is nothing more than a search engine that allows you to access sites that are not accessible by other typical search engines like Google or Bing.

This is due to the “.onion” extension rather than “.com”, “.org”, etc at the end of the websites on the dark web. So how do you access these sites? You can access these sites using a different kind of browser called “tor”. Let’s take a look at how to download tor and access the dark web set by step.
