Darknet means portions of the Internet that are not found by popular search engines or even using standard browsers. The users remain anonymous, hence the darknet is often a magnet for criminals.

To gain access to the darknet a so-called "Tor Browser" is needed. Because of the high degree of anonymity, the darknet is known as a transit point for drugs, weapons or child pornography. Alternatively the term "deep web" is used.
