The Dark Web

About the show:

There’s a dark side to the internet, and you probably don’t even know it exists. Go behind the positive veneer of social media, communication apps and platforms that have made our lives easier and more connected, and you’ll find criminals using the same apps and platforms to run illicit and dangerous activities. Sextortion syndicates target global victims through social media. Illegal wildlife trades thrive on social consumer marketplaces. Digital black markets operate anonymously using software designed for press privacy and freedom. Secret child pornography rings run rampant in secret, closed groups and private chats.
