A ‘Mask’ for Your Smartphone, Is It Necessary?

These days, apart from doing activities at home, we are also encouraged to do “Double Masking” namely wearing one mask on top of another. This needs to be done to increase the level of protection and air filtration by the masks we use. However it is not only us, humans, who need to wear masks, but our Smartphones too. What does it mean?

Physically, our Smartphones are among the dirtiest objects because Smartphones are the objects that we use most often during our activities and we often pay less attention to cleanliness.

Whereas Smartphones can be said to be objects that are often closest to our noses and mouths. But, do our smartphones need to wear masks? Make sure it is always clean!

In addition to maintaining the cleanliness and health of our bodies by obeying health protocols, we also need to do “Mind Sanitizing” (like what Mr. @hingdranta.nikolay said) which is to keep our minds from ‘dirt’ that can weaken our immunity. Then, how to do Mind Sanitizing?

To do Mind Sanitizing, one of which we need to smartly and carefully filter every information that is spread and received. This ability to filter and sort information is what we can call a ‘mask’ for our Smartphones. By having a good ability to filter information, our minds will be protected from the ‘virus’ of hoaxes and misinformation that is currently circulating and is no less dangerous.

Choose content that builds our spirits and hopes so that we can survive the current unfavorable situation. We are the one who have the authority to choose which one is good for our body and mind immunity and which one is not. We can also try to find and learn something that we are interested in to develop our new skills so we can still be upgrading our competencies.
