Criminals aren't the only ones logging on to the dark web. Plenty of people visit this section of the internet every day to share information, store sensitive documents and communicate anonymously. Because it attracts its fair share of illegal activity, concerns about the safety of entering the dark web are common. However, if you have a good understanding of what it is, how to access it and how to conduct yourself while there, entering the dark web can offer a new measure of anonymity and safety to your browsing habits.
