#1
You must have heard of the dark web or deep web and as you know it is a scary place and its full of skilled cybercriminals. So it becomes necessary to secure yourself while visiting this wild part of the internet.

Today I am going to show you about some precautions that you should use while surfing the dark web.

Secure Your Browser
Securing your browser must be your top priority as hackers can exploit it to gain access to your machine. So let's talk about some ways by which you can make your browser more hardened.

  1. If a website doesn’t use HTTPS, don’t use it.
  2. Disable JavaScript using the NoScript plugin.
  3. Disable all the plugins as they can be used to track/exploit your system.
  4. Don’t use search Engines like Google which track you. Instead, go for DuckDuckGo which doesn’t keep the records or inject tracking cookies into your browser.
  5. If you download something from the dark web its ok but consider opening it in a sandbox or a virtual machine first.
  6. Don’t use torrent because torrent uses a peer to peer connection instead of using the TOR network.
  7. Don’t maximize TOR browser’s windows as it can be used to determine screen size of your device.
  8. Secure your browser even more: Enter "about:config" in your browser tab and press enter
    Then make the following changes:
    javascript.enabled false
    network.http.sendRefererHeader 0
    network.http.sendSecureXSiteReferrer false
    extensions.torbutton.saved.sendSecureXSiteReferrer false
    network.cookie.cookieBehavior 2
    browser.cache.memory.enable false


Secure Your Operating System
If your operating systems are easy to hack then it could be a problem…a really really bad problem.
  1. Don’t use windows because windows are really very easy to exploit, prefer Linux.
  2. It's good to use tor in a virtual machine so you can minimize the damage in case you get infected by some malware.
  3. Use a firewall.
  4. Keep your system up to date.

Secure Your Identity
And the most important thing is to hide your identity.
  1. If you have to sign up for something, use a disposable email service such as throwaway email.
  2. Choose usernames and passwords carefully. They should not have any kind of link to your real identity.
  3. Send messages in chat rooms only when its necessary and do not reveal any kind of information.
  4. You will eventually find scam sites and phishing sites, so use your mind and stay away from them.
  5. Don’t do something which might grab the attention of legal authorities like watching child porn. Do not watch child porn at all, even for the sake of curiosity. Stay away from it.
  6. If you have to upload an image somewhere, wipe its EXIF data first. And don’t upload any photos which reveal anything about your personal life. Like the color of your cat.

Still not secure? Here you go!
  1. Get a new laptop.
  2. Get a new USB and install Tails in it. Tails is a Linux distro dedicated to security and privacy.
  3. Now install tor and set TOR browser’s security setting to high.
  4. Follow all the security measures we have discussed above.
  5. That's all.

That’s all for now. I hope you enjoyed this article. Kindly, like and share the article.
