Deep Web is a term for all content on the Internet that is not indexed by search engines. These include password-protected pages, pages that are not linked to other pages, pages that do not allow search engines to index them, and content that is dynamically generated when a page loads. This article describes a number of ways to access content on the Deep Web.
Method 1 of 2: Access the Deep Web in the library
Step 1. Go to the public library website
Type the name of your place into a search engine, and type public library.
- You need a valid library card to use the public library's Deep Web resources.
- If you are a college or university student, you can access the university library's Deep Web resources.
- If you do not have a valid library card, you can request one from your local public library.
Step #2. Look for Deep Web Resources
On the library website, search for links such as Research, Online Resources, or Databases, and click a link that resembles them.
Step #3. In the list of resources, find one related to what you're looking for, then click that link
- Before you can access the library's resources, you'll probably need to log in with your library card.
- Usually, a library will show you collections of online academic journals and full articles and information from the local government.
Method 2 of 2: Access the Deep Web using Tor
Step 1. Download the Tor browser
Click here to go to the Tor website and download the Tor browser.
- Tor is a communication tool that allows people to share information with greater security and privacy than in the open Web.
- Tor will not show you a list of Deep Web sites, but will give you access to all Tor-encrypted sites.
- Tor is used for many different things. It makes it easier for whistleblowers to share information anonymously. It also makes it easier for individuals to share illegal information.
Step 2. Install the Tor browser
Once you have downloaded the Tor installation file, install it on your computer like any other software.
Step 3. Open the Tor browser
You can use the Tor browser to browse the web as usual. Your browser usage will be anonymized via the Tor protocol. When you come across a website that has been made anonymous by Tor, you can open it.
