People say deep web is pretty disturbing. It may be true for some websites. But there are still disturbing things on the "normal web". Like some videos of liveleak and etc...Deep web is probably more dangerous than scary, since there are a lot of illegal things happening there. A missclick (or curiosity) can ruin your life. This is the main reason way I don't go to the deep web that much
Crane probably uses the deep web.
This thread is full of misconceptions about the "deep web". It's actually just a term for any part of the internet that can't be accessed through a search engine because it's not indexed. You're conflating it with the darknet, which is a specific type of network that can't be accessed without a specific program, form of authorization, or whatever. This is usually taken to mean that you need Tor to access it, but this isn't true.You can do illegal things on the normal web, like engage in piracy, and you can do legal things on the "deep web". I've actually used the darknet before for research papers because that's actually a perk of enrolling at some colleges -- easy access to scientific documents that are normally not available to the surface internet or are hidden behind a $40 paywall for people without connections. I've used the deepweb before to access private websites that friends have made that have been behind password protection. These actually aren't scary, alien places, and a lot of people have probably used the deepweb in particular without realizing it (though various forms of darknet are something you have to go out of your way to use).That said, spooky shit can still happen away from the prying eyes of the general internet populace, and here's another video showcasing it.Sleep tight, everyone.
You got that right, but the Darknet is mostly in the Deep Web overall. Actually, sites like Pirate Bay and other piracy sites are considered part of the Deep Web (according to some stuff I read online about the Deep Web), even though you can access them through Google. I think 4chan is considered Deep Web too but I'm not too sure about that last one.Anyways, people consider the Darknet the same as Deep Web because once you go too... deep in the latter, it's basically all dark with children pornography, torture, terrorist groups, and all that stuff. I haven't even bothered visiting the Deep Web other than Pirate Bay and much less the Darknet or any of those but my curiosity was huge so I googled a lot about it.
Stuff you've read online about the deepweb isn't correct. Let's break this down:Deepweb: Any site that isn't indexed by a search engine. (ex. You can't arrive there by using Google)Darknet: A part of the internet that can't be accessed by freely browsed by anyone and you need some specific way of using it (ex. a password to get a private site, a specialized browser to look at scientific documents, or even something as sick as a Tor browser to look at a site with snuff films)4Chan is easily accessible by putting its name into Google. The same is true for the Pirate Bay, along with innumerable other torrent sites. Additionally, anyone can access them with any one of the "normal" browsers. This means that they are a part of the visible, surface web.The terms are obviously conflated with one another because of the popularity of both as sources of urban legends and the fact that while they're distinct concepts, people usually just think of both as scary sites normal people can't go on. Neither is true, as anyone can access either with relative ease and you'd have to explicitly be looking for the scary stuff to find it.
