  1. Encryption level in dark web makes the user hide his identity and IP address.
  2. Most of the duplicate content, complex URLs makes difficult to track in dark website.
  3. End user’s IP address is bounced back so many times before reaching the website, so it is very difficult to track the IP address of the user.
  4. The browser looks similar to normal browsers. But when a user enters the website, it gives a message to the website server, which is sent to the recipient, again sent back to the user. This makes difficult to check who is seeing the website.

At present dark web is the secret home for illegal activities. But I am sure that it won’t last forever. Because every negative thing should end, secret never lasts for long period.
