Well, it’s no big deal since you have nothing more to do. At least keep your phone clean to make sure that you stay safe during this lockdown.

Here we have a list of tips that can help you stay safe during this pandemic lockdown.

Wash your hands before touching your phone

You should wash your hands before and after touching your phone. This will make sure that your phone won’t get any virus and bacteria from your hands. This will reduce your chances of getting infected with Corona with a big percentage.

This handwash could be a quick handwash and not the 20-second long one, only if you are touching your own phone again and again. You can even just sanitize your hands using an alcohol-based sanitizer. If you are going to touch someone else’s phone then makes sure to wash your hands afterward with soap.

Use alcohol wipes

There is another solution to clean your phone to make sure it is clear of any harmful bacteria. You can use alcohol wipes which you can find easily at any medical shops and these are not expensive at all. These wipes clean out your phone and alcohol kills all the bacteria.

You should make this a habit to clean your phone using these alcohol wipes one in a while to keep it clean. The smartphone catches bacteria and viruses faster than you can imagine so cleaning it once in a while keeps you safe.

Don’t wash your phone under the tap – This may void the warranty

If you are thinking of just straight up washing your phone under the tap in your kitchen sink then don’t. Even if you are fortunate enough not to damage your phone with tap water, you may lose your warranty. Your phone has a small white sticker inside, near the openings like charging port. This turns pink if it gets in contact with water, it won’t turn back to white even if you dry your phone.

Your phone might be IP67 or IP68 water and dust resistant and it may survive a few washes like that. It is not made to do that more often, it is there for emergency purposes and if you get your phone damaged from that then you will lose your phone’s warranty.

Use a microfiber cloth to clean it

If you cling to your phone and won’t put it down more often then keep a microfiber cloth with you. If you don’t know what a microfiber cloth is and can’t find one then you can use the one that came with your spectacle. I know you haven’t used it even once after you got your glasses.

Use hand sanitizers before you touch your phone

As I already mentioned before, you should keep your hands clean before and after touching your phone. If you cannot do that often then makes sure to keep an alcohol-based hand sanitizer handy. Use it on your hands every time you touch your phone so you get to stay safe from Corona Virus.

Use UV Phone Sanitizer

There are a lot of smartphone manufacturers which are making Sanitizers for phones. These sanitizers use UV light to kill all the bacteria on the surface of your smartphone. You just have to put your smartphone inside this accessory and turn it on. After a few minutes, you can remove your phone from the accessory. You can buy one from Amazon for your phone, this is an expensive accessory but there are some affordable versions available.
