The legal implications of the dark web

The dark web is an encrypted portion of the internet that can only be reached by those who have access to the Tor browser. Typically, it is used by those in South Carolina and elsewhere who are looking to purchase controlled substances or engage in other illegal activities. Transactions are often conducted using Bitcoin or other types of cryptocurrency. However, is generally not illegal simply to access this portion of the internet.

Identity theft and the law

Some South Carolina residents might have experienced identity theft when another person stole their credit card data, Social Security number, or other information. With this kind of information, it is possible to apply for credit cards or take other actions using another person's identity.

Guarding against digital crimes

South Carolina residents could be victims of crimes committed using a computer or similar device. For instance, they could have their information stolen by someone who put a virus on a computer or into a computer network. Individuals could also have their information copied, stolen or damaged by the work of a criminal. It is generally not a good idea to put personal information online or to give it to a stranger through electronic means.
