    There are 3 parts of the Web.

    Surface Web: makes up 4% of the internet. It is everything indexed by search engines. That's Google, Facebook, wiki, reddit etc. This is what you think of as "the internet"

    Deep web: Not accessible from Google. Hosts hidden side of the internet. Includes whistleblowers, conspiracies, hidden chat rooms

    Dark web: The real dark part of the web. Well hidden at the bottom of the deep web. For example child porn, hitmen and silk road drugs.

    The last 2 are only accessible through TOR. From my own experience and that of others I would stay away unless you are a real techie and don't want to be mentally scared
    You only a program like TOR for the Dark Web, the Dark web is part of the "deep web" but the majority of the deep web is mainly stuff like internal company computer systems and databases. (Stuff you can't reach by just googling it)

    I would highly suggest against visit of the deep web, because the slightest mistake could put you into a FBI honeypot or you could possibly get hacked by the most brutal hackers on the deep web.

    However about your question... please read my post earlier, I will quote it here for you. I've explained everything here
    I Have to satisfy my curiosity, or it'd take up a large proportion of my thoughts, incessantly and obsessively. I just need to preserve my safety but still play around on it.

    Proxies are advised but not necessary. I have accessed 4/5 marketplaces multiple times without a proxy and have had no problems. For a quick browse just download TOR and find a site you want to visit.
    Going by the amount of warnings and my hanging-by-the-thread self-preservation, I probably need to research more about TOR itself.

    I think I'm going to search the internet for a person knowledgeable about this, meet up with them, learn more about it and use their equipment to access it. Hopefully they won't harm me. (PM me if anyone is willing to help further ).

    This is all so intriguing.

    It's real and been on it
    the dark web is a portion of the deep web where illegal websites prosper they usually have .onion urls ...it's not illegal to go on...but it is illegal to do activities such as buying illegal items (guns, drugs , you name it)

    You'll most likely get arrested if you search for guns or child porn....but drugs is a hit and miss but I still wouldn't advise going on there except for research purposes

    and if you do try go on it make sure you use a VPN with no logs optionally with a proxy with more protection

    To protect yourself from the malicious content, you will need to be on Linux. This is because they hackers mostly attack the windows users, hence why it is dangerous to visit it from Windows.

    To keep yourself anonymous, you will need either TOR which is a browser or I2P. TOR will pass you through Guard Node, Relay Node and Exit Node. You will have to make sure that the relay node which will make you basically invisible. However, you must make sure that nodes that you are going through, are not malicious themselves, because they are owned by private companies mostly.

    Again, this is for educational purposes, I don't recommend visiting the deep web at all. It is my area of expertise and I hardly ever go on it. There is nothing there to see!

    So to explain what the dark web is. The majority of the internet is inaccessible via search engines etc. and is known as the deep web. This is mostly legitimate and is mostly data storage such as in academic institutions to store research or medical records. However, there is a criminal part which is the dark web where the technical invisibility is exploited as the true worst parts are found here. You need to use TOR to access it. There is a theoretical deeper layer known as Mariana's web.

    Why do you want to use Tails? its probably the most boring linux distro ever + most windows compatible software don't run on Linux!

    But to do that you will have to make a bootable USB drive(RUFUS USB Loader does that)

    Then you would have to install the OS from the USB drive after fully formatting it.
