Remove a broken glass screen protector from your phone or tablet

One of the mandatory requirements of owning a smartphone is to keep its screen damage-free. And, no matter how safe you try to keep it, nothing can beat the protection that a phone screen protector provides.

But,

Like every other object on this planet, a screen protector also lasts temporarily. 

Over time, it gets scratched or cracked in the line of duty, keeping your smartphone safe.

That is the right time to replace it with a new one. You can replace it with a Nano Technology Liquid Glass Screen protector.

However, many users are hesitant to remove the previous screen protector manually. Little do they know that it is an easy process, which can be done using everyday items.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to remove a glass screen protector without damaging your phone screen. These instructions will work on any smartphone or tablet, including iPhones and Android devices.

Step 1: Gather your Tools

The first step in removing a glass screen protector is to have all the necessary tools at hand. And, as mentioned earlier, the tools needed for this process are everyday household items, so you will probably find them lying around your house and won’t require a trip to the convenience store. 

You’ll need the following:

  • Toothpick
  • Credit card or a business card
  • Hair-dryer
  • Microfiber cloth
  • Alcohol wipes
Prepare your tools to begin the task

Step 2: Lift a Corner

Now comes the tricky part: Lifting a corner of the glass screen protector. 

  • Start at the top right corner of your phone and slowly remove the screen protector glass away from the screen with the toothpick.
    Alternatively, you can also use your fingernails if you have long nails, that is!
  • Lift the screen protector just enough so that a credit card or a business card can slide underneath it.
  • If you’re wondering what the hairdryer is for, you can use it to heat the screen’s surface to loosen the adhesive in case you’re having difficulties getting the toothpick under the glass.

Step 3: Loosen the Edges

Once you have successfully raised a corner:

  • Slide the credit card or business card under the screen protector.
  • Move it around the edges of the phone, staying half an inch away from the center.
  • For good results, repeat the process a few times.

The purpose of loosening the edges is to keep the original screen safe from any scratches while removing the screen protector.

Step 4: Remove Slowly

Now that the edges are loose:

  • Slide the card under the glass over the entire width of the phone while it’s still inserted at the top. 
  • Slide the card down to the phone’s bottom while simultaneously removing the screen protector away from the screen. 

The trick is to go slowly and steadily so as not to put too much pressure on the glass (which could cause it to flex and crack).

Step 5: Final Touches

You have now successfully removed the glass screen protector. 

  • Clean your screen using an alcohol wipe.
  • Wipe it dry with a microfiber cloth.

You may install a brand new glass screen protector to make your phone look as good as new and begin using it again. Check out Syncwire’s range of screen protectors to give your phone’s screen a longer life!
