Dark Web Sees Surge In Daily Visitors Over 2.7 Million

While the Dark Web only comprises an estimated 5 per cent of the entire internet, it has an alarming 2.7 million daily users (as of April) and the volume of illegal activities being executed is alarming, a report has warned.

Whilst its intended purpose is to allow people access to a censorship-free internet where they cannot be tracked by governments or any other parties, data acquired by niche news publisher BanklessTimes.com revealed that in fact 56.8 per cent of Dark Web activities are illegal in some way.

“Thus, it’s estimated that over half of the 2.5 million daily Dark Web visitors in 2023 have participated in illegal activities. Even more so alarming is that this number is on the rise, as of April 2023 this figure rose 200,000 to 2.7 million daily Dark web users," the report noted.
