Obviously, it is very rare to find someone without a phone nowadays, so there are many people who made horrendous mistakes for us to learn from, including the places that we should never keep our phone in, especially that we have an addiction and take them with us everywhere.
After all, our phones can put our health in danger if they were placed somewhere specific. Otherwise, they can be damaged completely, therefore, ending up without a phone and losing hundreds of bucks again for it.

– You can forget about it, end up sitting on it and break it.
#2 – Front Pocket

According to some studies, the electromagnetic radiation of the device can affect the quality and quantity of sperm. The longer his device stays in his pants, the higher the danger.
#3 – Bra

#5 – Against your skin
You should never put your device against your skin because every time you do it, the bacteria on the screen and buttons will be transferred to your face’s skin along with the electromagnetic radiation.

It should never be left in the car or in the street for a long time because the temperature could harm the gadgets very badly and cause many issues with the internal details. So if you went outside in the cold, make sure to “dress” your phone up with a warm phone case.
#8 – Hot places
It is known that high temperatures could be very harmful to electronics. So during summer or any hot day, do not leave your phone under the sunlight directly, on the beach or in the car. Also, try to avoid keeping it next to an oven.
#9 – Stroller
Mothers often place their phones in their baby’s stroller, especially if they were in a hurry. There are many researchers who argue about it not being safe, and the impact of those devices on little kids are dangerous. It can cause behavioral problems like attention deficit disorder and hyperactivity.
#10 – Under your pillow

– Electromagnetic radiation can lead to dizziness and headaches.
– Leaving the phone under the pillow can cause many cases of fires and explosions, especially if it was charging.
Your phone may hold a lot of secrets and ways to make you joyful, but it is okay to keep it far from time to time in order to protect your health and to help your phone have a longer life.
