Every year, Lifehacker celebrates the dark side of life-hacking with Evil Week. From today, we’ll be highlighting all the things you shouldn’t do – assuming you’re a good person. Let the trolling begin!
Evil Week is all about nefarious life hacks that can make life better for you but worse for others. We’re not advocating nasty or illegal behaviour, but as the adage goes; knowledge is power. How you choose to use that power is up to you.
During previous Evil Weeks, we’ve explained how to scam public transport, how to make someone’s computer shut down against their will, how to exploit grocery store self-checkouts, how to snoop through someone’s phone anonymously and, er, how to take nude selfies.
Again, we’re not condoning any of this behaviour (with the possible exception of the selfies.) But knowing about these hacks can protect you from less scrupulous people.
Got an “Evil Week” hack of your own to share? Tell us about it in the comments! (We promise not to report you to the cops. Probably.)
