If you read our post about why you should travel with glitter nail polish, you know we love unconventional OPSEC advice that keep strangers out of your business.

That’s why this quote in a recent GQ profile of Kim Kardashian, which was first pointed out by LA Times editor Amy Fiscus, stood out:

“She’s frighteningly organized: She tells me that before bed she deletes every single text message and e-mail from her phone, unless it’s something she still needs to respond to.”

Is this good OPSEC?

We asked one of our resident experts Camillo Särs and he was intrigued.

“Yes – the practice of deleting any unnecessary copies as soon as possible is definitely good OPSEC,” he explained. “Clearly that is not the actual intent here, but effective, nevertheless!”

So be like the woman who broke the internet,  and consider getting rid of anything you don’t need to keep as soon as possible.

And if you’re about to go on vacation, here’s a quick OPSEC tip for your email out-of-office message, which could be helping criminals trying to phish you.

Is there an OPSEC tip you picked up that you’ve picked up and feel like sharing? Let us know in the comments.
