What is the dark web and dark web directory for finding onion links?

Dark Web (within the Deep Web)

The Depp Web is not the Dark Web. It is a subset where all content is deliberately made invisible and therefore not accessible by traditional means. It’s what people are referring to when they talk about the illegal and dangerous web; a much smaller part where the available content is not only illegal but also rare.

To enter here you will necessarily have to use a specific Web Browser since normal browsers such as Chrome, Opera, Firefox, or Safari cannot reach it. You must necessarily download Tor Browser (open source software).
If this is a new world for you and you do not have the faintest idea of how to move to navigate in depth, I invite you to read my complete Guide to anonymous browsing with Tor browser

How does Tor Browser protect my privacy and what system does it use to do so?

The .onion

The function of TOR is to give users access to .onion domains ensuring their privacy with fully encrypted browsing.

Even if your IP is used to log in, Tor will bounce all the information between tens or hundreds of nodes (thanks to the use of special servers called Onion Routers made available by volunteers belonging to the network who donate part of the bandwidth to the cause) in such a way as to make it impossible or almost impossible to trace back to the original IP from which the request started.
The key and secure nodes of communication are called Guard Node and Exit Node, respectively.

“The first relay of your circuit is called an “entry guard” or “guard”. It is a fast and stable relay and will remain the first of your circuit for 2-3 months in order to offer protection against a known attack of anonymity tampering. The rest of your circuit changes with each new website you visit and all together these relays offer full protection of Tor’s privacy.”

In summary, we say that: communication within the TOR network has been specially developed to guarantee secrecy, data integrity and congestion control.

Is it illegal to surf here? Who navigates so deeply and what can I find?

It is mainly used for anonymity and therefore it is used in most cases to carry out illegal activities. In fact, thanks to the “onion” (from onion, in English onion) here you can easily come across child pornography sites, sale of weapons, sale of false documents, drugs, sex with animals, torture of animals, Necrophilia, murders on commission and other various porcate.

Anything you can’t find in Clearnet or in real-world stores or markets can be found here.

It is not to be considered a crime to navigate it but on condition that you do not buy or sell anything that is legally controlled. If by mistake you enter such a site you immediately exit and continue on your way.

Be that as it may, I will suggest shortly what not to do here so as not to run into serious trouble.

Remember that browsing with Tor Browser your internet service provider will not be able to see the sites you visit but will know that you are connected to Tor and in itself this can attract suspicion about online activity. Intelligence such as the NSA and FBI are constantly looking for ways to track the activity of Tor users.
Ok, I understand! Tell me what to do to get in.

Note: This guide is for informational purposes, I do not recommend you to visit this place. It’s your choice.
1) Download Tor Browser only and exclusively from the official website, (available for Windows, macOS, Linux and Android) and just to start read my complete guide to browse the .onion sites.

Yes, you got it right, because Surface web addresses end with .com, .net, .it, .ru, .uk etc., while those of the deep web all end with .onion.

2) Launch Tor. Use a good VPN service with No Log option like those from NordVPN and Surfshark.  All the data you send and receive online will travel through an encrypted tunnel. No one can see your private information.
3) Turn off/disconnect connected external devices like camera, headphones, printer etc. Turn off the webcam and microphone or cover the cam with duct tape and microphone to muffle the audio.
4) Set the security level to “Safe” or “Very Safe”.
5) Do not maximize (full screen) the browser window while browsing.
6) Avoid clicking links if you don’t know what they point to.
7) Avoid downloading files as PDFs because they can contain nasty surprises or if you really want to do it open them offline.
8) If you use Windows to navigate you will necessarily have to read first my guide to turn off the spy options of Windows 10 with ShutUp10
9) Avoid (don’t think about it!) to click links that point to cp, pedo, gore and various whores. If you’re not entirely sure what a link leads to, don’t click it. If you do it by mistake, exit immediately and continue your navigation elsewhere.
10) Do not give any kind of information about yourself. Avoid translating a site (when possible) into your language and if the opportunity arises to write to someone do it only in English. If you don’t know English, use a translator to communicate.

11) Always use the dark web directory to find out what dark web links work.  Otherwise it is almost impossible to find dark web links because they are not indexed by normal search engines.
