Samsung Offers Its Customers Free in-Store Disinfection of Devices
Ultraviolet (UV) light may be known for its intensity of skin damage, but it can also be used to disinfect your electronic devices and protect against the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses or bacteria. Ultraviolet disinfection, which uses UV C light in particular, is common practice in many electronics repair shops because it avoids the use of liquids or potentially corrosive and toxic chemicals. Some companies have even begun offering UV treatment services in response to the spread of COVID-19, and Samsung owners can spray their devices with disinfectant rays for free at participating Samsung stores.
In most regions, Samsung Experience Stores and Samsung Service Centers are equipped with UV cleaners that employees use with customers’ phones and will now disinfect your Samsung smartphones, although some also provide cleaning for tablets and smartwatches. …
The program is currently only available in a few countries, but is likely to be expanded to other regions when possible. Here’s where Samsung offers free device cleaning:
- United States
- New Zealand
- United States
While the service may be free, take your time to clean all of your devices. If you believe that you or your devices have been exposed to COVID-19, you should avoid contact with other people to limit its spread. It makes more sense to keep this in mind in case you want to sanitize on the road. Check out our guide to cleaning your smartphone if you need a DIY home repair tool.
