If you’re looking to access the dark web, there are a few things you need to know in order to do so safely. First and foremost, you’ll need to download the Tor browser. This browser will allow you to access websites that are not accessible through traditional means.

Once you have the Tor browser downloaded, you can begin searching for dark web links. However, it’s important to exercise caution when doing so. Not all dark web links are safe, and some can even lead to malicious websites. For this reason, a lot of dark web users prefer to use Tails rather than Tor.

What is Tails?

Tails is a portable Linux distribution that protects against surveillance and censorship. You may make your computer more secure temporarily. You can also keep yourself secure while using someone else’s machine.

Tails always boots in the same clean state and everything you do during a usage session will automatically disappear when Tails is turned off.

Almost anything you do might leave traces on the computer if you don’t have Tails. That’s right, you’re being spied on constantly by your ISP, government agencies and internet browsers. Examples of this invasive practice are as follows:

All of your web activity is recorded, even if you’re in private mode. The files you’ve opened, and the data you’ve downloaded. Even if you use a password manager to keep your data secure, those passwords are kept. All your browser data is fingerprinted as well as any Wi-Fi networks and devices you’ve used.

Tails, on the other hand, is completely secure. Why? Because Tails never writes anything to the hard drive and only executes from memory. When you switch off Tails, all of its memory is wiped clean, removing any potential clues. Yeah, Tails makes you invisible to nosy 3rd parties who want to track your online activity and data.

Now you can secure your computer in any location. Instead of booting into Windows, macOS, or Linux to use Tails, restart your computer from a USB stick with Tails installed instead of restarting.

According to the resources at tails.boum.org, it takes about 30 minutes to install the 1.3 GB Tails installation, which can be installed on any USB flash drive with at least 8 GB of free space.

Tails is a free, open-source operating system that was designed to be as safe as possible. Tails does not place any restrictions on you and runs independently of the primary operating system, so you don’t have to worry if your computer has a virus. If you install Tails from a computer with malware or if you use it on one with malicious hardware installed, such as keyloggers, it may not defend you effectively.

One way to ensure that you’re only accessing safe dark web links is by using a service like Tails. Tails is a live operating system that routes all of your internet traffic through the Tor network. This makes it virtually impossible for anyone to track your online activity.

In order to use Tails, you’ll need to create a bootable USB drive. Once you have done so, simply boot up your computer from the USB drive and begin using the internet as usual. All of your traffic will be routed through the Tor network, keeping you safe and anonymous.
