Step 1: Clean your workspace. Be sure to get a flat, hard surface without a lot of fabric, liquid, dust, etc.
Step 2: Lay the phone down and clean it well with the cleaning cloth provided. Do not use any kind of cleaning fluid or water, but try to be sure that all fingerprints are gone. Especially be sure no dust or lint particles are on the screen. Before proceeding be sure that there are not a lot of dust particles gathering near you, vaccum and clean the area up a bit more if need be. You want as sterile an area as possible before continuing.
Step 3: Being careful not to touch the sticky side of the screen protector, peel back the tab where indicated. Hold the screen protector only by the sides and line it up with the phone. If you touch the sticky side of the screen protector by accident do not try to clean it off, you will only make it worse. Line up and let the screen protector fall into place from the top of the phone to the bottom. Some people choose to use a credit card or thin piece of plastic to smooth out bubbles as the screen protector makes contact with their device, however this is usually not recommended by the makers of the screen protectors or the phone. The choice is yours, but bubbles are meant to smooth out over time, so take that into consideration.
Steap 4: Once the screen protector is on the device if it is straight and you can see bubbles but no lint or dust beneath it, you are successful, give it a few days for the bubbles to dissipate. If it is not on straight, you may be lucky enough to be able to lift it up and place it better without fault, however this is risky. If lint or dust has gotten between your phone and the screen protector you have likely failed, there is little recourse from here, other than removing the screen protector, cleaning the device, and trying with a new screen protector altogether.
