There is actually two parts of the Internet you are currently connecting to over a network; Surface Network (Standard Internet Network) and Deep Network (Deep Web). The surface network covers all of the content that you view through search engines such as Google, Yandex, and Yahoo. These content includes photos, videos, and texts that everyone viewed from websites such as Google Chrome, Safari, and Mozilla Firefox, viewed through websites such as Facebook, Gmail, and YouTube.
On the other hand, Deep Web, which we call Deep Network, contains everything that is not listed by conventional search engines. Technically newly created websites are considered part of the Deep Network. The same applies to websites that are restricted to access.
The reports show that a part of the Deep Network has created illegal sites. This raises curiosity for all Internet users.
What You Need to Know About Deep Web
According to the analyzes, the Surface Network constitutes only 4% of the Internet we use. This means that the Deep Network is about 25 times bigger. If you’re using standard browsers, you probably haven’t seen part of the Internet.

If you have access to blocked websites, you have access to all content on the Deep Web. So if you are currently logged in to Wikipedia, you can browse through other content on the Deep Network.
But when you step into this dark world, you have to pay attention. An uncontrolled connection can make you difficult to click. So let’s take a look at how to safely access Deep Web.
Use the Tor Scanner
First, do not step into the Deep Web without using a secure browser such as Tor. The Tor browser will help you to protect your privacy and provide an Anonymous access to the Internet. Tor provides your privacy by clearing your cache and cookies each time you close your browser.
Use Deep Web Directories
When you step into the Deep Web, you’ll probably be confused about where you’re going. The easiest step to find a solution to this problem is to use directories that list sites on the Deep Web.
It clearly states the links to the sites on the directories and the purpose they serve. While most websites do not damage your computer, make sure that you do not enter your credit card information and download any files by purchasing products through the sites you have reached through the directory. The Tor browser may not be able to assist you in these situations.
Use Security Tools
Using Tor, you can access websites on the Deep Web. In addition, you can secure your computer by taking different security measures.
- VPN – You can use VPN applications to further increase your anonymity. In this way, the actual IP address of your device cannot be viewed by any other person.
- Tails – A mini-operating system that you can quickly install from your existing operating system. Specially designed to protect the privacy and anonymity of the user.
While exploring the different dimensions of the Internet, it will help you to follow the security recommendations listed above. Good luck and good fun.
