How Often Should I Change Screen Protectors?

Dear Computer Lady,

Any advice on how often to change the screen protector? Mine came in a package of three, but no guidance.

Thanks, Mary

Dear Mary,

I think it is a matter of preference. Some people change their screen protector once every month or so, while others try to get as much life out of them as possible.

Some signs that it might be time to change your screen protector are:

It starts peeling away from the screen at the edges.

There are multiple scratches on the protector.

Otherwise, just keep it on there, and it will keep protecting your screen.

Leaving it on will not damage your screen in any way, and if you managed to get it on there straight, and without any bubbles, why take off a perfect install?
