Do InvisibleShield screen protection and Gear4 cases protect from Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
No, InvisibleShield screen protection and Gear4 cases have not yet been tested for COVID-19 virus.
InvisibleShield and Gear4 products have been tested in third party labs to ISO and JIS testing standards and have been proven to kill up to 99.99% of the most common surface bacteria such as E. coli and staph.
Will the anti-bacterial technology on my InvisibleShield screen protector ever stop working?
No. The anti-bacterial technology is infused into the screen protector itself. It won’t rub, scratch, wear off or wash away. The InvisibleShield screen protector retains its anti-bacterial properties for its lifetime.
Is the anti-bacterial technology on my InvisibleShield screen protector and Gear4 case safe?
Yes, InvisibleShield screen protectors and Gear4 cases have been tested and are non-toxic and safe for all users.
Do I really need to worry about bacteria on my phone?
Yes. The CDC estimates that 80% of all infections are transmitted by our hands.1 We touch our phones, on average, 2,617 times a day.2 And, one study has found an 82% overlap between bacteria on test subjects’ fingers and their phones.3 We touch an everyday surface, like a store counter or a bathroom handle, and then we touch our phones. It’s like collecting all of the day’s bacteria in one place.
