What is Picasso?
Picasso is a shop that specializes on counterfeit documents. You can order different forms of ID cards which will be generated for you. Currently only documents for three countries are supported (USA, Canada and UK) but more will be added in the future so make sure to check this site regularly if you’re looking for specific fake documents.
For US documents you can choose between utility bills, driver licenses, passports or simply SSNs. For Canada, the site provides drivers licenses, ID cards and passports, for the UK only drivers licenses and passports. The process to order is very simple and streamlined and completes in 4 steps:
- Choose a country to select a document types
- Fill in the information
- Wait for document to be rendered
- Review and finalize the document
The site offers three different subscription models: Standard, Business and Professional. Standard is the default subscription and free – every registered account starts with a standard subscription. With this subscription you pay for each requested document individually. If you pay $500, you get a “professional” subscription which allows you to get 200 free draws for one month. With a business account for $1000 per month you get unliminted free draws and access to the Picasso API and its documentation.
Same as with all darknet sites the usual security recommendations apply. Most importantly: stay anonymous. Use the TOR browser only and don’t use the TOR browser for any regular (non-darknet) browsing.
Ideally, you have a dedicated system or at least a dedicated VM for all your darknet activities. Keep your darknet PGP keys and other credentials limited to that system only, do not mix it with any activities that would expose your identity.
Treat your dedicated system like a work-system: Only install the software necessary for your operations do not install anything for entertainment or other purposes. Subsequently, resist the urge to browse Twitter, Reddit or any other social media sites while you have downtime. For this always use your regular system.
For additional system security, we recommend you run a secure operating system like Tails or Whonix on your dedicated system for darknet activities. We also recommend using a VPN as an additional security measure since TOR will only anonymize your browsing sessions but not other traffic.
Especially when using any public WiFi hotspots you should always use a VPN when accessing the Internet since you don’t know whether the access point is compromised. A VPN ensures that all of your traffic, no matter what application, will always be strongly encrypted when passing the access point, this protecting yourself not only from eavesdropping but also possible identity theft.
Picasso is obviously a site with a very specific purpose, but it fulfills this perfectly. If you ever need a fake document for the USA, UK or Canada, Picasso is one of the first sites to visit. The interface is very intuitive and it is really easy and fast to get the type of document you need. As always, when visiting any darknet vendor shop make sure to only use trusted links, such as the onion link for the Picasso document shop on the top.
