I had a client the other day tell me a computer tech told her to put her laptop in the oven and heat it up to get rid of a virus. Brian just read a review for a phone app saying that the person was told to put his phone in the microwave to “heat up the processor and cause it to run faster”. Rather than continue to bang my head against the wall, I chose to do a PSA to get this off my chest.
Just a word of advice… heat and electronics don’t mix. Microwaves are for food, not phones.
The microwave thing has been going around for 10 years, as a “put your phone in the microwave to charge it” meme…
Your phone won’t charge in a microwave. You can’t make it run faster by heating it up. You can’t get rid of a virus by baking your computer in the oven.
