Above is a dictionary definition of the deep web, and how it differs from the dark web. You've all been to the deep web, you just don't know it.

What is the deep web?

The deep web means it isn't indexed by a search engine. Majority of the data stored online is actually deep web. Your email inbox is part of the deep web. Activities as mundane as editing a private journal, viewing online medical records, bank statements, uploading videos, watching movies on demand and other services that require subscriptions are the deep web. Even forums that require registration and passwords to access pages, *cough* sound familiar?

If you can't directly visit a page just by clicking the link, and have a security setting as prerequisite then you are leaving the surface web and visiting the deep web. That's all it means.

You do not access the deep web through anonymity networks like Tor, that is specifically the dark web, which is what I think we are actually talking about in this thread. I have never been there.
