Just install the TOR Browser. Do bear in mind though, most of what you hear about the "Dark Web" is completely made up by people who know absolutely nothing about computers. It's a lot more mundane than most people would expect.

I agree lol. Unless you are looking for trouble, you probably won't find it. Everyone always says "Don't do it, you'll never be the same." Well, I've been doing it for years, and it hasn't traumatized or disturbed me any more than I was before.

Lol, the sheer amount of ignorance is kind of hilarious. Honestly with stuff like this it starts to get worryingly hard not to slip into obnoxious elitism. Like, it's fine to not know much about a subject (especially one as technical as TOR) but the degree to which people gobble up sensationalism and legitimately believe they know what they're talking about is astonishing

I'm no expert, that's for sure. But I'm always seeing people say those types of things. Everyone tries to make it seem evil, when it can actually be really useful. I remember being a bit confused when I first gave it a go. People would almost have to search for the twisted shit they talk about.

It's just that there was alot of hype of people selling things and getting more knowledge on how to do different things...is that true?
