    Hey, everyone. I'm a first time iPhone user (got my 64 GB SE a few days ago), and being extremely OCD and protective of my cute little phone, I got myself a Ringke case and a tempered glass screen protector.

    I tried to apply the screen protector on my own, however, even if I put it correctly, I noticed some dust sneaked in. I took it off, cleaned it, put it on. More dust. I did this several times. Maybe up to 10? Like I said, OCD. The glass is still sticking to the phone but there are two little fingerprints in two corners (where the phone is white, so it's only noticeable under light), however, I want them gone.

    I decided to order a Nillkin 9H+ Pro tempered glass and I'll replace this one in a few weeks when it arrives, but I was just wondering can the constant peeling off/on hurt my screen in any way? I know I might sound paranoid, but I just want everything to be perfect. Thanks in advance.

    No. That won't hurt the screen of your iPhone.

    A tip when you install the replacement screen protector, do it in a steamy bathroom with the shower running. The "steam" will help prevent dust.

    Ohh, thanks for the tip, I was wondering where I could do this once the new glass arrives. Sounds good!

    You can also do it on your stove with the fan on. I've done that with success as well.

    theoretically the mild adhesive of the screen protector could partially remove the oleophobic coating of the display...

    Keep in mind that the coating is wearing off anyway, over the time.
