This winter I decided to buy a box of those blue nitrile gloves. Not to service my car or do anything glamorous, but to do dishes with! (I do a lot of dishes it seems lol) Did you know you can operate a phone (including the fingerprint sensor) through these with no issues? I was genuinely surprised. :-)
I can't get mine to work if I've got to much lotion or my hands are a bit damp / wrinkly from doing dishes...
@randynose yeah mine doesn't work if my fingers are damp or wrinkly either. That's what surprised me about the gloves.
@rfquerin aside from the meme that if you protect your phone with a fingerprint, thugs can cut your finger off to get access, bear in mind that Covid treatment with heavy antibiotics may make you molt like a snake, thus making your fingerprints totally unusable for months
