Step 1: Pick a Screen Protector
Picking the right screen protector isn’t easy. It’s almost like selecting a spouse. But for your phone. Which, I guess, makes this an arranged marriage.

Step 2: Find a Well-Lit Space and Get Organized
Find a well-lit surface to work on. A desk or table is ideal. Make sure you have everything you’ll need: your phone, a wipe cloth, a screen cloth, a dust remover, the screen protector, and a card. Turn your phone off before continuing.
Step 3: Wipe Dirt and Smudges off your Screen
Get your screen wipe. If your screen guard didn’t come with one, an alcohol wipe will do the trick. Wipe your screen clean of any dirt or smudges.
Step 4: Dry your Screen
Get your screen cloth. Wipe down the screen with your screen cloth so it’s nice and dry. If you don’t have a screen cloth, any glass friendly cloth (like a glasses cloth) is perfectly fine.
Step 5: Get those Persistent Pieces off
Use the dust remover provided. Swab and wipe away any residual dust. You don’t want this beneath your screen protector. Leftover bits could start looking fossilized in your new screen guard.
Step 6: Remove the First Layer on the Protector
Remove the first, bottom layer on your new screen guard. This is the adhesive layer. It usually has a tab or something to demarcate where to peel.
Step 7: Put the Protector on Your Screen
Line up the screen guard with your phone’s borders. Lay it across flat and evenly. Use your hand to press it on gently.
Step 8: Get Rid of those Bubbles
Nothing’s worst than bubbles trapped beneath your screen protector. There are two ways to get rid of them. One is to use a card—like an ID or bank card—to press and push the bubbles out. Simply scrape them toward and off the edge of the screen. Another is wrapping the card in a screen cloth as a precaution to avoid damage. Afterward, scrape the bubbles out and off the same.

Step 9: Remove the Top Layer
Lastly, remove the top layer. Again, there should be something indicating where you are to pull. Just peel it off and voila! Your screen shouldn’t be so nebbish and weak anymore. It should now be equipped to take on the world!
