Posted at 7:32 AM, Jul 22, 2019

Law enforcement officials are issuing a new warning about the dark web. They say that parents need to be aware of what apps are on their children's smartphones.

There are some apps that are used just to access the dark web, which has been an attractive curiosity for teens.

TOR is the most popular browser used for the dark web. Users can use it to find illegal pharmacies selling hardcore drugs, unregistered guns and videos and photos that wouldn't be acceptable on the regular internet.
