Chapter 10. The Dangers of the Dark Web

The Dark Web has a bad reputation. Everyone has heard something about things that go on there. Sadly, the media has blown the stories out of proportion. As I've stated several times in this book, the main issues for the standard user are how you access it (dedicated browser) and the anonymity gained on it. So many of the stories you've heard of are exaggerated and aren't true.

But, there is a kernel of truth in the stories, and it's these that you need to be aware of.

This chapter will dive into these stories of the dangers on the Dark Web.

We will be covering the following topics in this chapter:

  • Online scams
  • Minimizing the risks on a Dark Web market
  • Dangers of the Dark Web
