From what I have been reading it is pretty secure in regards to the encryption I know there have been arrests by the fbi and other agencies but these people have all been hosts and dealers looking isnt against the law unless it is murder streams or child porn or similar things but then if you are very careful i sopose you can use the software on a daily to protect you privacy while avoiding the .onion links

Darkweb != Deep Web

Deep Web is content that's not normally accessible through sites and such; such as company databases and the like.

Dark web is the "black market" area where there's plenty of illegal things and the like (not to say that's all that's on there).

Haven't browsed either.

Well if you want drugs, weapons, illegal documents.. its pretty much the easiest and safest way to get hold of them. It's not much harder than ordering off Amazon. In fact in some ways it's better, as you pay in Bitcoins and when you checkout the payment goes into escrow. It's only released to the seller when you confirm receipt of the item.

AMD Ryzen 1300X
Nvidia GTX1060
WD Blue 250GB SSD
Asus AMD PRIME B350M-A Mobo
Corsair 450w PSU
Fractal Design Core 1100 mATX Case


I can't wait for the day where my house robot with artificial general intelligence can be spoken too like a pathetic slave. "GO MAKE ME A DAMN MEAL, YOU POS!".

The VPN I use uses the dark/deep web.

Basically, it is legit as what you do with it.
