Back in early 2018, I wrote the post DuckDuckGo is not a Dark Web Search Engine in order to shed some light on this subject. It seems that there’s still a lot of confusion over this, unfortunately.
One of my readers recently emailed me and asked if you could be “100% anonymous” online. I think that it’s possible, but you need to take a lot of steps. To be honest, I’m not 100% anonymous at present, so maybe I’m not the one to ask, but I’m in the process of researching it. […]
