    I usually use Windex or Isopropyl alcohol to clean and disinfect my smartphone screens.
    Is there any chance these products could damage the fingerprint sensor?

    Thanks for any comments.

    I just use a microfiber cloth and no liquid. Don't wanna take any chances.
    If you buy the microfiber cloth used for cars, it makes your phone look brand new each time without any need for liquid. Its a good quality microfiber

    Every morning after I shower, I just use the damp towel I dry off with to wipe the phone down. It's not the same as using a cleaning "product" that may do a slightly better job at getting every little thing off the phone ... but it DOES do a wonderful job at getting 99% of the stuff off - be it dust, oils, etc. The phone doesn't get wet as the towel is just damp enough to pick up anything on the phone and clean it more than adequately.

    Easy, Safe, and Free ... Been doing that with all my phones as long as I can recall, and it's never had a single negative effect on the phone(s), despite brand, style, etc.

    Daily I use a microfiber cloth. I'll probably buy some disinfectant wipes for electronics this weekend since the warmer weather brings additional oils and sweat.

    I forgot to mention that I use a microfiber cloth to dry off the screen and I do throw the cloth in the washer periodically.

    Thanks.

    I use my shirt. I personally wouldn't use windex or anything with chemicals / alcohol. Just my opinion.

    I use a microfiber cloth that is allegedly "for glass" -- I just put it under the running faucet and then squeeze most of the water out, so it is just slightly damp -- and then I use a very nice, plush microfiber cloth to dry and polish the screen. I have never, ever used any kind of a "cleaning solution" on the screen, just water.

    i use the cleaning cloth that came with my Maui Jims. Lint free and safe and gentle enough for sunglasses should be fine for any smartphone screen. I assume it's microfiber.

    I only use the softest kittens available, and when I'm all out of kittens, butterfly wings are an acceptable alternative while the kittens are being laundered in ion-free water. Naw, I just wipe it on my shirt sleeve a couple of times a day.

    I typically wipe it off with my shirt. Its gorilla glass 4, I feel pretty confident my shirt won't scratch it.

    I wipe my glass screen protector off with a blue microfiber cloth, costed me about $0.99 off of eBay, going 4 + years strong
    Just wash it every now and then to keep tiny particles out of it.

    A good rub with steel wool should do it.

    I would not use the alcohol. I think it can damage the oleophobic coating on the screen. I just use a damp cloth.
