Aside from our hands, our smartphone is the next most important thing to remember to clean.

According to Dr. Peter Papadakos, the director of clinical care at the University of Rochester Medical Center, “the screen itself is a harbinger for carrying bacterias and viruses,” he explained to Life Hacker. “There have been multiple reports of infections being transmitted by the screens of our phones.”

Anti-bacterial wipes and disinfectant spray are certainly effective, however they also create more waste than necessary. And unfortunately, finding bacteria fighting products is not so easy at the moment. While on the hunt for disinfectant products, we discovered InvisibleShield.

The smartphone protectors, made for iPhones and the Samsung Galaxy, features anti-bacterial technology that kills up to 99.99 percent of common surface bacteria. The company explains that it “lasts the entire life of the product—in other words, it won’t wear off.”

The brand makes four different types of screen protectors that all work to fight bacteria. The most popular is the Glass Elite VisionGuard+. It is the strongest glass screen protection that is combined with a VisionGuard+ blue light filter. The glass is infused with bacteria-fighting properties for an anti-bacterial treatment that won’t wear off.

While many of the Glass Elite’s are sold out, the next best option is the Ultra VisionGuard+. Since it’s also made with the blue light filter, and anti-bacterial technology, germs are still being killed. The biggest difference between the two is the strength in protection as it’s made from premium film instead of tempered glass.

The third style is called Ultra Clear+. This film protector has an emphasis on how crystal clear the screen is, thanks to the thinner adhesive, but more importantly it still features the bacterial technology we’re all looking for.

The InvisibleShield protectors have stellar reviews and incredible ratings, but just in case, it’s still backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Whether it gets worn or damaged, the company will replace it for as long as you own your device. A win-win, if you ask me!
