Why and How You Should Be Disinfecting Your Phone

It has become increasingly important to disinfect commonly touched surfaces due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Like your hands, your cell phone is also a platform for spreading unwanted germs and should be sanitized often in order to prevent the spread of infection. Not sanitizing your phone properly can lead to internal damage therefore, prior to disinfecting your phone it is important to understand how to do it safely.

  2. Remove any case or cover
  3. If there is any visible soils or dirt, wipe the phone with a damp cloth
