You have probably heard about Darknet, Tor, Onion.
But you might have not paid attention or undestood how it works.
We will explain you what it is, how it works and how to use it.
The darknet is an overlay network of the internet. You can find on it social networks, forums but also shop (that often are illegal or scams).
Because anonymity is better on the darknet, it's used by people living under governments that practice censorship; by whistleblowers; but also by criminals.
When you open the Tor browser, you will have to choose between a simple connection (if you're not a country that censors Tor) or a configuration button, that will allow you to setup bridges and proxy. The first option is probably enough (especially if you use Tor over VPN) but if it doesn't work, you can try the 2nd option.
After that you will be connected to the Tor network.
