How to access the Dark Web and protect your Privacy, Anonymity and Security

Do you want to Protect your privacy and security? How about accessing the dark web?  If so, then you found the right course!

With no prior knowledge required this course will take you from a beginner to advanced in all of these topics; teaching you how to properly and securely discover data and websites on both the dark web and clear web, access hidden (onion) services, communicate privately and anonymously using instant messages and email, manually use end-to-end encryption to protect your privacy and make it impossible to read even if it gets intercepted, sign and verify files, share files anonymously, transfer funds anonymously using crypto currencies such as Bitcoin and Monero and much more!

You’ll also learn how to do all of the above in a secure manner making it very difficult for hackers or other entities to hack you or de-anonymise you. Even if you get hacked these entities won’t be able to easily control your system or de-anonymise you.

    Amazing Course

    The content, concept and explanation are amazing. The course helped to be more secure, anonymous and private. Excellent work Mr. Zaid....

  • Andrew Corkill

    This was an excellent course. Incredibly practical, with enough theory to make what you are doing make sense. The explanations were very clear and to the point. I've seen other courses focused on the dark web, TOR, etc, but none that give such complete coverage of not only the dark web but also methods to remain anonymous, private and secure. You don't even need to go on the dark net to use this course because they can be applied to using normal internet, files, etc. The techniques can be applied to anything to make your current activities more private and secure. Great job!
