We didn't get the opportunity to attend Def Con this year. But with a hashtag like #BadDefconAdvice, we feel like we're kind of there in spirit. Many suggestions are simply security no nos to begin with. Others are entertaining, to say the least. So, we compiled a list that made us laugh, cry, and even cringe a little.

Here are some of our fave tweets so far (with commentary!✨):
