article “The Dark web is alive and well, with over one billion unique visitors per month, according to a recent report from Alexa,” a report from the data analytics company said.
“More than 90 percent of those visitors are using a VPN, which helps to anonymize their data.”
The report added that more than one million people were using Tor, the anonymizing tool used by many online services.
The Dark web’s growth also has been fuelled by its new owner, the controversial Darknet Market, which recently acquired an online marketplace, Zaebo, in a deal worth $US1.1 billion.
A few months after the acquisition, the marketplace became a hub for the sale of illicit drugs, including fentanyl and cannabis, as well as child pornography.
