There are many things we do every day that we have no idea that we do, such as touching our face with our hands.  In the age of coronavirus, this can be especially dangerous.  But how do you stop something you generally do not think about?  With DoNotTouchYourFace.com! The website teaches you to avoid touching your face using your webcam. The site works when you pair your webcam and takes quick video recording of your face.  It’ll then ask you to place your (clean) hands on your face and take a second video. Then whenever you raise your hands to your face to give it a quick pat or caress, you’ll get a very obvious warning to stop. The warnings persist as long as your tab remains in your browser’s background. However since this face-training occurs directly in your browser and not on a server somewhere, you’ll have to go through the process of taking a video of your normal face and your hand-covered face each time you restart your browser. For what it's worth, a little help to untrain yourself of a bad habit, is worth the process.
