Anonymity might seem to be carrying a negative aspect on the society although there are some instances where anonymity bears a positive aspect on the society.

In the latest history, Edward Snowden, a former CIA employee exposed how the National Security Agency (NSA) has an infrastructure of global surveillance already in place.
This brings us to the question- Why aren’t the whistleblowers utilizing the dark web? Dark web is already the home for anonymity. Well, to be very honest, dark web is used as a communication channel by the whistleblowers to some extent as the most well known example is the WikiLeaks. The international non-profit organization has no doubt altered the history though some even at this point wonder if it is relevant today. WikiLeaks is still active on the Dark web and it has leaked information about the location of Amazon’s data centers. Whistleblowers, some of them are quite comfortable using the WikiLeaks given the number of leaks they have done.
