Wash your hands... and your phone!
Along with washing your hands regularly, you'll want to get into a habit of cleaning your technology. Some of the most dangerous bugs have been found on the plastic and glass surfaces of smartphones. From there they can make their way to your fingers, your face, your desk, the local restaurant, and all the other places you put your phone down. So, just about everywhere.
The good news is that disinfecting your phone and your other electronic gear doesn't need industrial-strength chemicals or hazmat suits. Before you start, power down the device, remove any cases, and unplug any accessories so you've got full access to the phone. Start by using a soft micro-fiber cloth. Use that to clean debris from the surface. You can use soap and water (carefully) to disinfect your device. Manufacturers including Apple recommend using a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox Disinfecting wipes. Gently wipe the hard, nonporous surfaces of your device, such as the display, keyboard, or other exterior surfaces. Don't use bleach! Avoid getting moisture in any opening, and don't submerge your device in any cleaning agents.
You don't have to thoroughly disinfect every time you pick up your phone. We recommend disinfecting once a day, after others have used your phone or after going out. Once things settle down with the virus, weekly disinfecting should be sufficient. Watch this short video to see how to clean your phone.
