Knowledge Base FAQs

What is the dark web?

The World Wide Web is made up of three main areas:

  1. The surface web – open-access web pages indexed by search engines such as Google, Safari and Chrome. This is the part of the web most of us are familiar with.
  2. The deep web – (also called the invisible web or hidden web) is much larger and contains pages such as password-protected webmail, internet banking or any sort of forum that requires registration for viewing.
  3. The dark web – an area of the internet that you can’t access from regular search engines. People tend to use it to keep their identity and activity anonymous and many buy and sell data on this concealed space.

Recent statistics estimate that the surface web makes up around 5% of the overall internet; the dark web also takes up around 5%, and the deep web makes up the remaining 90%.

Why might my data be at risk on the dark web?

If personal information, such as your phone number, bank details, and email address, ends up on the dark web, cyber criminals may be able to get hold of it. And if this happens, you could be at the receiving end of phishing emails and other scams, or fraudulent activity. There’s a chance somebody may use your information to access your bank account or hack your social media and other accounts.

If the dark web enables criminal activity, why isn’t it closed down?

It’s worth noting that the dark web isn’t always bad.

The dark web has a reputation for being rife with criminal activity. Most people associate it with identity fraud and the selling of illegal products. This is indeed the negative side of the dark web — the anonymity and high level of privacy enables such activity to take place.

However, this anonymity can also be beneficial in certain contexts. For individuals living under oppressive regimes that block free internet usage or punish political dissent, the dark web can be a lifeline. It’s also a critical whistle-blowing and communication tool that shields people from retribution in the workplace. Did you know that most major newspapers use the dark web for this reason?

What is a data breach and what should I do?

A data breach is a security incident whereby somebody accesses your information without permission. Breached personal data, including bank details, can lead to identity fraud which can cause a great deal of stress alongside financial loss.

When a data breach is detected, it’s vital to take action as soon as possible to protect yourself against criminal activity. Depending on the type of information that has been breached (for instance, email password or credit card details), the action you need to take will differ.
