The Basic Way to Search the Dark Web

The Dark Web is the hidden section of the Internet that requires specific software, like TOR, to access it. It allows users and website owners to be anonymous and difficult to trace. The Dark Web is generally not indexed, which makes it difficult to search.

You can search some of the Dark Web via Google. For example, if you want to search the word ‘shoplift’ you can type the following in the Google search box: “shoplift inurl:.onion.to”. Your search results would show in Google same as in a basic search, but keep in mind you will need TOR to view the results in detail.

If you use a more complex search method like “shoplift + YOUR COMPANY name” you would get more refined results. This method won’t find everything but can be useful in fraud and ORC investigations.
