How do I decrease radiation from apps on my phone?

Disable background refresh on apps on your cell phone whenever possible.

Remember that even though you are not using an app on your phone, they will continue to emit wireless when they refresh and sync data. So reducing the constant refreshing of your cell phone reduces the radiation emitted.

Step by Step

For iOS

  1. Disable background refresh on apps. Go to Settings and then General.
  2. Then, tap Background App Refresh and toggle it off for apps you don’t need to be working in background.
  3. Cancel apps you are not using. Sometimes we sign up for free apps and forget about them.
  4. Go to Settings, then click your name at the top to open your Apple ID settings. From here, click Subscriptions and you’ll see a list of all the apps you’re subscribed to, with the renew dates.
  5. Then, unsubscribe to apps.

For Android

  1. Disable background refresh on apps. Find options under the Permissions Manager menu under Privacy within Settings.
  2. Cancel apps you are not using. Open Settings, click Google, click Manage your Google Account, click Payments & Subscriptions and then select Manage Subscriptions.
  3. Then, unsubscribe to apps.
