How to Access The Hidden Wiki

You can’t access the hidden wiki just using a common browser like firefox or google chrome, but you need firefox so if you don’t already have firefox download and install it.

Then you should download the Tor Browser, click here to download it

When the download is complete, double click the downloaded file choose the destination folder (the folder where you want to extract tor browser) and choose extract .  Then open the folder where you extracted tor browser and double click “Start Tor Browser”

start tor browser

Firefox will open up using this as the home page

From there, you’re now at some level anonymous and you are able to gain access to .onion and the hidden wiki !

ready to access hidden wiki

Take into account that Tor isn’t necessarily 100% anonymous, several proxies are required along with tor, obviously a firewall program as well as Anti-virus. I recommend you to disconnect or even place tape on your webcam , turn off javascript cookies, temporary data and use ccleaner

The Final step to access the hidden wiki is to paste this url to tor browser: http://zqktlwiuavvvqqt4ybvgvi7tyo4hjl5xgfuvpdf6otjiycgwqbym2qad.onion

UPDATE 24/08/23: The Hidden Wiki seems to be down,  if rumors in forums are true, the admin of the hidden wiki just got arrested. You can use these mirrors of thehiddenwiki:

  1. http://torlinkbgs6aabns.onion/
  2. http://jh32yv5zgayyyts3.onion/
  3. http://wikitjerrta4qgz4.onion/

Dont forget to turn off javascript, check this for more

  1. everytime i try to get onto the hidden wiki or any other .onion site it ses unable to connect, im not sure whats goin wrong ive got onto these sites on another laptop but not mine? help

  2. I’ve been having the exact same problem too. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. What is going on?

  3. Sometime, tor sites is down. This because it is not geographical redundancy with the example of Google. As well, he who maintains no paid. Low uptime not life-threatening

    • DO NOT use a [.to] or [.tor2web] extension. You will lose your anonymity.

      Like the other comment said, Tor is very temperamental and can be very slow. Sometimes if you go to your “Vidalia Control Panel” and click, “Use New Identity”, it will speed things up. Don’t forget, you are going through at least 3 servers. Some of them are held together by duct tape.

  4. Link is valid “” it just runs through a proxy that allows you to access sites.

    Nodes must be under lots of stress or hacked by anonymous. Just remove .to from links when running through links from hiddenwiki

  5. I was having this problem all the time. It would either disconnect or time out. You need to change your time settings.

    Go to date and time settings, Internet time, change settings, update now.

  6. so i have been searching this hidden wiki for an email service.
    it seems nothing on the list of the hidden wiki links to anything at all.
    it is all dead links.

  7. It seems the whole .onion network is down…. this could be the end of the Anon nation. No .onion links seem to work nor can you get to the hidden wiki. Welp, it was a fun ride.

  8. Jesus, it’s amazing!!!
    Crazy, God of mine, this is crazy!!!!!!!!
    Do that really bring pain and soffer to other people!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
    I’ll go to Mars…

  9. Aarrgh… Just did a little research on “the Hidden Wiki” whats the essence… Kinda dumb. I like just the annonymity… Which i do always, when i do my proxy changing.

  10. Sept 5, 2013. The hidden wiki online with this message posted at its top: THW did not get shut down. The webhost which hosts THW, is in turn hosted by VolumeDrive, which was down for 3 days during a DC migration. See Web Hosting Talk [clearnet link] –Admin (talk) 08:04, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

  11. The Hidden Wiki’s admin has not been arrested the website just had a problem, the main Hidden Wiki’s link work fine at this moment.

    • I can hardly access any sites. I’ve tried going on mirrors and tried to go on Human Experiment and Paranormal sites but it just says that it’s unable to connect. Only things I can connect to are drug-related and weapon stuff and the hitman’s site.

  12. Just here to get info on how to get the ICE virus. Need tp research on it. I here if you go to Tor’s some links you get infected with it. Dont know if this is right place to post it

  13. Hi,
    Does anyone know if the ‘cheap euros’ link on the hidden wiki is genuine or a scam?
    Please help,

  14. Warning .TO sites are on the open they are not .ONION sites. Don’t believe anyone telling you to to an onion address.

    • Did the fraud @ Green Notes Counter tell you he was a middle-man or guy who just sold the notes for someone? Did he let you know that he received your payment & it was being shipped? I may be in same predicament as you. Please let me know of your experience. Thanks

      • Hello, I would just like to know if you ever did receive anything since making that comment? Because I may be in the predicament too.

  15. All financial services on the hidden wiki are scams especially those offering credit cards or skimmed cards and paypal. Why the hell will i give you $1000-$2000 for $150?? and accept an anonymous mode of payment?? Grow up guys. Always use escrow. If the vendor does not accept escrow===SCAMMER!! Beware.
