What is the deep web? and why the characteristics of the deep web can put you in danger? Today I explain to you that part of the Internet that you do not know and that you should not try to know.
First, imagine someone asking you what is the web? My answer when they asked me that question for the first time, was that it was all the information that was stored on the Internet. Then they asked me how could I access that information? And my answer was “Google search”, if your answers were similar to the ones I said, you are very, and I emphasize, very wrong.
Everything is the fault of Google, being the best ranked browser in the world, it has shaped us so deeply that he is the only door to the Internet … The truth is that it is not its fault, we cannot hold it responsible for something that we decide to believe.
And the first thing we must do to avoid being wrong is to start differentiating the web from the Internet, this is when our beloved Google throws us in our ignorance, because if you search “Web and Internet are the same?” Google will show many pages -more than you want to read- that will say that it is NOT the same.
To make it short, because the Internet is the set of connected networks, and the web is what browsers show. To make it even simpler, let’s suppose that the Internet is an island, if you want to go to the island, a suitable way is that you use a boat (the web), but there are also other suitable ways, as if you are swimming (applications), in jet ski (email), by boat (online games), by helicopter (smart tv), etc. The web is part of the Internet, a very important part. Now, what is the origin of the deep web?
