The devices are called CleanSlate UV sanitizers and can be found in Terminals 1 and 3 right now.

You'll find one of them near Duty-Free in Terminal 3.

Pearson claims this device is much more efficient than wipes, which are only effective if they are left "untouched for 2-4 minutes" on a surface.

To use it, all you have to do is place your device in the tray and close the lid.

The lid will automatically reopen when cleaning is complete. You'll also get instructions on how to sanitize your hands.

The airport also has disinfectant walk-through machines that spray you and your luggage with non-toxic cleaner.
