A Parent’s Guide to the Dark Web


What do I do if my Child has Been on the Dark Web?


If you’re not sure what the dark web is or how to find it, don’t worry. You are not alone. Generally, there are three levels to the world wide web: the surface web, the deep web, and the dark web.


Just about anything can be found on the dark web. This includes most things that parents can’t even fathom. Bad, bad stuff.

What’s in the Dark Web?


Just about anything can be found on the dark web. This includes most things that parents can’t even fathom. Bad, bad stuff.


Here are just some of the things that can be done on the dark web:

  • Stolen identities

  • Illegal firearms

  • Stolen credit card information

  • Explicit images of adults and children

  • Images of fights and murder

  • Prostitution

  • Drugs

  • Hire a hitman

  • The list goes on


People can communicate to plan criminal and terrorist activity. Really bad stuff happens here. Think of the dark web as the dimly lit back alley of the internet.

Where is the Dark Web?


You can’t just go to the dark web on Safari on your iPhone or Edge on your PC. You have to download a special browser called "Tor".


What if my Kids Have Been on the Dark Web?


If you know that your kids have been on the dark web, don’t jump to conclusions. Not all activity on the dark web is illegal and going onto the dark web isn’t illegal, yet.


Have an open and honest conversation about what was done while on the dark web and try to see what motivated them to go on it in the first place. Then address those issues as you see fit.


To arm you with even more information I’ve created The Secure Dad Guide to the Dark Web for Parents. You can download this free PDF to have this information for yourself or to share with another protector parent.
