Stop Contamination and Reduce Screen Damage with Touchscreen Compatible Surface Barrier Film

Are you old enough to remember when cellular phones were first  available? Unlike today’s portable models, the first models required a corded handset and were strictly for use inside automobiles. Big, bulky and very expensive, they were secured to a base in the console area and required a mounted antennae on the back windshield.

Eventually, cell phones became portable but it required individuals to sling a heavy and bulky carry case that resembled a piece of carry-on travel luggage. Over time, cell phones became smaller, slimmer, more powerful and with advancements in technology, became capable of connecting people from all over the world.

Today, it seems like virtually everyone owns a smartphone. While a majority of people see smartphones as being convenient, for many they see them as a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. While your smartphone, tablet or laptop computer screens, computer keyboard and mice may look clean, recent research has found thousands of germs living on the fibers of touchscreens and are capable of spreading sickness bugs.

Because our electronics are constantly within our grubby grasp, they can get pretty gross. Smart phones are very often taken into public restrooms, handed to runny-nosed toddlers, passed around to share photos and pressed against sweaty skin. Repeated health care studies show what accumulates is germy nastiness worse than what is on the bottom of your shoe and a Stanford University study found that the risks of transmitting germs and bacteria between a glass or touch screen surface to human skin is fairly high. For example, if a virus is sitting on top of your iPhone, it is likely that 30% of that will make it to your fingertips.

Disposable Tablet Touch Screen Barrier FilmI don't think cross-contamination or germ transfers will stop anyone from buying or using gadgets with touch screens. It's become too popular and too convenient a technology for anyone to quit now-a-days. But it has bred more anti-germ related products than ever. If you're a real germaphobe but you can't imagine parting ways with your smartphone or tablet, you could always spring for touchscreen barrier film protectors.
