Accessing and surfing the Dark web is not a hard thing but staying there securely is a hard thing. To avoid tracking you by someone, you must take some precautions. So know here How To Access The Dark Web Securely.
If you are thinking that you are using the tor browser and you are safe then you are wrong. There will many hackers who come in front of you who can crack the tor network easily. Now you tell me, are you safe in the Dark Web only by using tor? No. You should follow some Tor browser rules and some tools with it to stay safe. I am discussing them briefly below.
Rules for using Tor browser
1. If you installed the Tor browser and you are running it for the first time and you show that the opened window of the browser too small and you want to maximize it. Never do this. leave it as the default size. Don’t resize the default size of the window. Don’t install any Add-on in your browser. Many Add-on tracks its users and collects private data.
3. Always turn on the ‘HTTPS everywhere’ option which is at the top right corner of the browser. Don’t download unknown files like mp3, video, e-books provided by the unknown site owners. Adjust your security level in the tor browser security settings.
4. The most important thing is, don’t use your microphone while you’re surfing the Dark sites and also don’t allow the browser to use your microphone and cover your web camera with bandage or tape.
5. All websites give the description of the website with the link but there are some bad people who give wrong information about the links that they provide which are of unknown and dangerous websites. So check the links and the providers if they could be trust or not. Don’t visit the red room and don’t visit the child pornography sites if you can’t anonymize your online identity. Follow these rules, you can stay safe on the Dark Web.
Use a good VPN with Tor Browser
Find out a good VPN whose provider says that they don’t keep any user logs. There are many VPN providers who share the user’s log. This is against the policy but if you do any cybercrime then if the government gives an order to the VPN provider to give your logs then he will have to give your logs. So choose a good VPN. Don’t use free VPNs, the free VPNs are a demo and sometimes they do not work properly.
Never use cracked premium VPNs. The cracked tools may contain viruses and the viruses will track you. Using a VPN with Tor makes a double security layer to your system so that if a hacker cracks your Tor network then the VPN will protect you. Every experienced Tor user uses VPN with it. The VPN will also hide you from your ISP(Internet Service Provider). It makes a tunnel between the ISP and the servers so that no 3rd person can see your details.
I recommend you to use the Nord VPN. This article is not a VPN promoting the article but my personal experience with Nord is good. So you can use it if you want. The price of Nord VPN is very cheap, you can afford it. It is also available and compatible with any device. Cyberghost is also another good VPN. I have browsed the Dark web several times using this VPN.
