9. Clean your phone more often
You’re probably using your phone more often these days while you’re either working remotely or spending more idle time at home, says Andrew Moore-Crispin, director of content at Ting Mobile. He recommends cleaning it consistently during this period of time, and that you avoid sharing your device with others in your home.
“First, power your device down, unplug all accessories, and remove its case,” he says. “Use disinfecting wipes containing 70 percent isopropyl alcohol to get rid of germs that have found their way onto your phone, or use a spray with a soft cloth to wipe down your device. Make your own cleaner by mixing 60 percent water with 40 percent alcohol. However, don’t use paper towels or other abrasive materials that may damage your phone.”
