Samsung launches service with free disinfection of smartphones

We do not let smartphones out of our hands. A huge number of bacteria accumulate on them per day, and given the epidemic of coronavirus walking on the planet, personal hygiene needs to be carefully monitored.

According to the WHO recommendations, gadgets should also be kept clean: they are constantly in contact with hands and face (unless, of course, you have refused calls). Apple, for example, allowed wiping its devices with alcohol-based products, although it had not previously recommended it.

The new Samsung Galaxy Sanitizing program allows owners of smartphones, smart watches or wireless headphones of the brand to contact a service center or an official store, where the devices will be disinfected with ultraviolet light.

Of course, there are advantages to this method compared to alcohol-containing agents: the oleophobic coating of the display will not be damaged. Yes, it will not be damaged by alcohol, if you act according to the instructions, but here is a hundred percent option.

Currently, the service is available in 19 countries: Argentina, Chile, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Peru, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, USA, Ukraine and Vietnam.

There is no list of stores that support the service in Russia. And even when such a service appears, I would not advise to go after it purposefully: the device will be overgrown with new bacteria along the way back. I imagine it this way: go about your business, and on the way a Samsung store or service – then go in and process the device, without wasting time and not putting yourself in danger of getting infected.
