Nothing to fear here! This is a Cellar Spider in family Pholcoides. I don’t know if they are even capable of biting people. I haven’t heard of it happening. I usually have one hanging out with me while I do this. They are the best spiders around for catching fruit flies indoors! A way to recognize one is their round clear leg joints that are between black markings.
