What Parents Need to Know About The Deep Web & The Dark Web

Published 22nd September 2020

A free online safety guide on The Deep and Dark Web.

While the deep web and the dark web are not the same thing, they do overlap significantly. The Deep Web refers to pages that are not indexed, which means that most search engines (Google, Bing etc) won’t return them to you after a search. The dark web is part of the World Wide Web that is only accessible by installing and using special software. It is the unregulated part of the internet; no organisation, business, or government oversees it or can apply rules. This is why the dark web is commonly associated with illegal practices.

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as online predators, unmonitored access and inappropriate content.
