Drastic, I know, but really think about it. If you just stay home and binge-watch the office again on Netflix, who can really fool you? No one. This way you can just hang out in the comfort of your own home. Heck, you don't even have to wear pants if you don't want to! Now, I know it's Easter and there's probably a big family dinner planned, but who says you have to go? Just lie and say you can't make it and when anyone calls you out, just say it was an April Fools joke all along.


#2. Know who is likely to prank you

Maybe you have one or two friends who are always the ones pulling the pranks. When you’re around them, make sure you’re extra aware of where they are and what they’re doing. By keeping a close eye on those most likely to prank you, you can avoid giving them the opportunity to get started!

Pranks don’t have to be limited by the prankster’s physical location thanks to the internet. Elaborate news articles with fake news, unbelievable deals, and discounts are all great ways to trick you (No, you aren’t getting free ice cream or winning a prize from YouTube for the funniest video ever). Also, don’t leave your laptop unlocked. If you forget to close out of your username, expect some pretty interesting Facebook updates!


#4. Trust no one

One of the easiest tricks is playing with food for a well-executed prank. It does not feel nice tasting toothpaste in your favorite Oreos or having salt instead of sugar in your morning coffee.


#7. Research pranks and double-check before you do anything

Before starting your day, take a look at some of the long lists of pranks that people could try pulling on you. The internet may be a wonderful tool, but it is a dangerous tool with endless amounts of pranks that people can discover and try to execute. Check all of the obvious ones — like buckets of water over the doorway, plastic wrap on your soap bottles, and even switched condiments in your fridge.

Change all your passwords, and sign out! And apply lock screens to your laptop, tabs, and smartphones. At the very least, don’t let your friends use your phone or laptop. And also sign out of your accounts on public computers, else you might not like what you see.


#9. Turn off your phone

Text messages are one of the easiest ways people can prank you, including your parents. Don’t even bother turning it on throughout those 24 hours, or set it to "do not disturb" and just allow emergency calls.
