Default Air bubbles under screen protector. Need help removing screen protector.

dropped my phone, and it seems to have caused some bubbles on the screen protector..i couldn't find a way to fix it. the bubbles are in the corners so it isn't a huge deal. everything else seems to be working fine. how do i take off the screen protector to replace it? it's stuck on there pretty good. sorry for the dumb question.

Anytime I am taking off anything that is sticky I use a blow dryer to heat it up and make it easier to work with. You also might be able to use a razor if you are very careful about the angle you use it at.

get some scotch tape. run the tape along the diagonal of the screen protector. Make sure the tape hangs off the corner by an inch or so, so you have something to grip.

Push down firmly on the tape to make sure it's grabbing onto the screen cover well.

Now, you should take hold of the overhang and pull straight up from the screen. The protector should peel up.

I've done this quite a bit to fix misapplied protectors, bubbles, etc. Very safe; won't introduce dust, won't scratch screen.
