Hello-hello, I wanted to ask can and does the site called “Dark Web ID” track down online, in real-life and etc? Because when entering the site, it says “This website stores cookies on your computer.

@User2020,
It all depends on exactly what you mean by "...in real life and etc?".

If I'm understanding your question correctly, then not quite. Nearly, if not, all major websites use cookies to remember "stateful" information about your browsing activity on said website(s) - which is pretty much what you quoted is saying.

It would be your IP address that would be used to actually get your physical location in the "real world". The web server software on the web server said website is hosted on would know which IP's are connecting to it. But if you're using something like tor, then your IP address wouldn't be known to the web server hosting said website - which is the whole point of things like tor.

Have a look at the following link for more info on cookies;

@justaguy2,
With “Real life and etc” I also mean “hacking, tracking and all that stuff”. So does that mean that it is actually possible to be tracked by that site? I suggest you to read the privacy policy of the dark web id so that you would understand more!?

@User2020,
What you quoted in your OP pretty much spells out the answer to your question.

The cookies in question pertain to THAT website, and not any website you visit. So no, you're misunderstanding what you quoted.

So just copy and paste any links within that same website the cookies are for, if you're worried about the cookies recording that. So yes, if you clicked on a link on a page of that SAME site, then yes, that could be recorded by the cookies in question.

@justaguy2,
No, you said that “It would be your IP address that would be used to actually get your physical location in the "real world".“. That’s kind of hardly an answer to my question and I asked if it would be possible to get tracked in real life, so you’re kinda avoiding my question.

@User2020,
I think you're just not understanding what you're being told, as I think I've answered your questions. Also, your question wasn't particularly clear to begin with. So not sure how "I've avoided it" ?

I suggest you re-read my answers, and that said, I'm done with you.

@justaguy2,
Are you being serious right now or are you trying to troll/mess with me? It’s just getting ridiculous now.
